How to do a smoky eye: Easy step-by-step tutorial

Make-up artist Rose Gallagher gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to get the perfect smoky eye using just a few products.

When someone hears that I am a make-up artist, one of the first things I get asked about is how to create the perfect smoky eye, Rose said.

For me, there’s two components to this: practise and brushes. Even if you have a quick play for five minutes before you take your make-up off each day, you’ll build your technique bit by bit.

Also, I’m a huge believer that a few key brush shapes can do all of the hard work for you.

Seeing as lots of us are spending more time at home at the moment, it’s a great time to get stuck into the make-up that has been sitting unused at your dresser.

Here are a few products I’d recommend, but by all means if you find something similar from your current make-up bag these steps will work just as well.
