All of my favorite Oscar and SAG Red Carpet looks this season had one thing in common: every stunning leading lady was wearing a glam smoky eye look to match her gorgeous gown.

I wanted to duplicate that look, but I didn't know what steps for creating the perfect smoky look to watch out for!

If you want the look, but aren't quite sure how to get it, keep reading!2

Here are 15 steps for creating the perfect smoky eye look, it’s easier than you think to get the glam!

1. Try It Ahead of Time

Try It Ahead of Time

If you plan to wear your hot new smoky eye look to a special event, it’s important to practice ahead of time.2

This will allow you to perfect your technique and even choose exactly the right color shadows and liners before you feel pressured for time, right before the big event.

Practice makes perfect, after all.

You can even add some glitter or go with the matte look, but practicing it beforehand is always the best idea!

2. Gather the Right Tools

Gather the Right Tools

Before you start on your smoky eyes, gather all of the makeup and tools you’ll need.

Grab two or three small shadow brushes, as well as a few cotton swabs (for clean-up).

You’re ready to go!

Also make sure that everything is very clean and that it is good quality.

Laying everything out before you start will save you from having to stop and start again!2

3. Start with a Clean “Canvas”

Start with a Clean “Canvas”

Before you start on your smoky eye look, be sure to remove all other eye makeup.

After all, when you’re creating a masterpiece, you need a fresh canvas, right?

You want all of the eye makeup off of your eyes, so that way you can really take your smoky eye look to the next level.

Trust me, I always use a bit of eye makeup remover on my eyes before I start my look!
