If you’re looking for products that will help you master a smokey eye in the blink of an eye, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve picked out a bunch of must-have products that you wouldn’t want to miss out on.

What exactly is a smoky eye look? The first thing that probably comes to mind is dark eyes. But that’s not always the case. It’s an eye look that is darkest at the lash line and gets gradually lighter as you approach the eyebrows. You can create it using various colours. Gold, blue or green, it’s up to you. Just follow the rule that the darkest colour always belongs at the lash line. We’ve come up with a selection of products that will help you create green, brown or golden smoky eyes. What will you need? 

What you need for a smoky eye look

   1. An eye pencil is a must

Line your entire eye with the Clinique Quickliner for Eyes eye pencil. You don’t have to worry about being too precise; you’ll blend the line out seamlessly anyway. But it should be thick enough for you to be able to blend it out over the entire eyelid.

   2. Add some colour

Now take the Lancôme Hypnôse Palette 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette, pick the shade “Bronze Absolu” and use it to smoke out the eyeliner. You can then apply a darker shade from the palette to your lash line.

   3. Step it up with an eyeliner

For an extra-dramatic look, use the Maybelline Tattoo Liner Ink Pen. You can use it to create a thin line along your lash line or you can take it up a notch and create a bolder eyeliner, winging it out towards your temples.

   4. There’s no such thing as too much mascara

Now it’s time for your lashes. Don’t hold back and apply several coats of the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. It curls, defines and prepares your eyelashes for the application of false lashes.

   5. Extra lashes won't hurt 

And because there’s no such thing as having too many eyelashes, don’t be afraid to use falsies. Try the Ardell Wispies false lashes, for example. Your glance will be mesmerising.

   6. Brushes help

Of course you can’t create a smokey eye look without brushes. The Notino Luxe Collection Eyes & brow brush set includes all the brushes you’ll need for a smokey eye look. And they also come in a beautiful case so you’ll never lose them.

   7. Pack it all up

And you can pack all of your smokey eye essentials in a makeup bag from the Notino Travel Collection Set of travel cosmetic bags
