7. Use a Good Primer
To even out your lid tone and give you a good base to start your smoky eye look, use a good primer. I love Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer. It’s got a little glimmer to it, and it covers freckles and veins on your lids nicely. This will also ensure that your eye makeup stays on well past the time it is supposed to. So if you do a smoky eye in the daytime, it'll still be there and perfect looking at night!
