When it comes to learning a new eye makeup technique, the first thing women ask me is, how do I do a Smokey eye?

The Smokey eye technique primarily focuses on blending darker shadows. No harsh lines should be present. Smokey eyes can definitely be striking, especially when done with a heavier application of eye shadow and liner. I have dedicated a whole page to the Smokey eye look.

Marilyn Monroe is forever known as the blonde bombshell. With those platinum-blonde tresses, perfectly arched eyebrows, trademark red lips, and those sleepy bedroom eyes, who wouldn't be spellbound by her beauty?

You will need:


  • Powdered medium brown eye shadow
  • Powdered white shimmer eyeshadow
  • Eye shadow brush
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • False eyelashes
  • Eyelash curler
  • Black mascara


1. With the eyeshadow brush, apply medium brown eyeshadow to the crease of the eyelid and blend well.

2. Apply the shimmer white eye shadow onto your eyelid and your eyebrow bone. Blend well.

3. Now apply the liquid black eyeliner to your lashline. Be sure to stay as close as possible to the lashes. The line will be thin from the inner lash line, thicker towards the middle, and then thin again towards the outer lash line. Draw slightly past the outside corner of your eye, winging the liner slightly upward. Allow the liquid liner to dry.

4. Now apply false eyelashes. While the false lashes are still drying, you will push down the ends of the lashes to give off that sleepy appearance.

5. Curl the eyelashes.

6. Apply mascara to top and bottom eyelashes.
