    Tu-Anh: Hey there, my name is Tu-Anh and I am showing you how to create Smokey eyes. Now, I am going to show you, how to apply Eyeliner and Mascara. Before we begin, I have already chosen a black cream eye shadow and this is actually a concealer brush. This will do a much better job than the actual eyeliner brush itself. What I have already done is I sprayed just a little bit of water into the cream eye shadow just to make it a little wetter and then I am going to use this brush and I am going to pick up some color. So, what I am going to do is, I am going to have you open your eyes and look down and I am just going to color the roots of your lashes right underneath here because if we do not do that, we can actually see how the lashes separate after we put mascara on. If you will notice on fake eyelashes, you have that really fine line. This is getting that look right here and I am going to spray just a little bit more water and I am going to apply on the top. See, already you can see the difference. So, what I am going to do now is I am going to apply on the top of the lid, very lightly. This look is actually a very, very sexy look, but you have fun at night removing this off. Now, I am going to apply a little bit same brush, same technique, I am just applying a little bit at the bottom. Look down and you want to do it on both eyes and I am just evening it out. Same brush, hat looks great.

    This is what I am going to do next is, I am actually going to use a charcoal or dark gray or you can use black if you want to, eyeliner and we are going to put it at the bottom of the crease to hide the red line. So, watch me and do this very lightly, really the last step all we have to do is mascara and you should be all set and then of course you can make sure you put a last finishing last touch like a powder something to set the face. Now again, once you know after a few seconds just step back, look at it, do you want it more intense, do you want it less, and then you can decide from there. Let me just take out this brush just a little bit, now, if you notice the complexion is very natural and simple and not too much. That is how you create the Smokey eyes look.
