Classic smokey eyes are our favorite look for a crazy evening out with your besties or your partner. The winning combination of matte black, sheer nude and pearly shades always looks sultry and seductive and fits almost every outfit and eye color. But seasonal makeup trends always bring diversity into the makeup industry inspiring makeup lovers to try something different and unexpected. So, in case you are tired of the traditional black and nude color combination, we gathered up 14 stunning colorful smokey eye looks you must try this season.
VIVID AQUATIC HUES:
We would love to start with these these vivid and dashing smokey eye looks in teal and mustard yellow. This creative color combination was set to match light brown and light green eyes but it compliments blue eyes just as well. Shimmering gold eyeshadow on the inner eyes and along with metallic accents emphasize matte hues and add just the right amount of sparkle.
Old is gold but this noble metal goes well with blue and gray eyes, making them appear more mysterious. Colorful smokey eye look that features matte gray and creamy shades together with gleaming gold shimmer on the center of the lid is an ideal night out makeup look. Simple, festive and charming!
Glassy metallic finishes are on trend at the moment and they work great on both eyes and lips. Coppery, slightly faded metallics together with popping blue and green colors make the regular smokey eye look more celebratory and piquant. Apply matte nude and light brown eyeshadow on the crease for a smooth transition between a metallic eyelid and a matte brow bone.
Looking for a versatile eye makeup look that's fit for both day and night? This peachy champagne makeup looks beautiful with any eye color and skin tone. A matte cool-toned hue lifts the brows and black lined eyes adds just the right amount of definition. Complete the look with a coppery-bronzed smokey lower lashline for a smoldering touch.
Sweet, slightly blended shades of magenta, paired with shimmers and metallics fit any season of the year! These bright colors pair well with warm shades of orange, yellow and cool tones of sea blues. Dark brown and dark green eyes will appear brighter with this smokey eye look. For an extra dose of seduction, line your eyes with black eyeliner.
COOL & WARM TONES:
This shimmering gray smokey eye combines the traditional smoky with a trendy twist - earthy warm tones. This gorgeous smoky makeup works well for evening occasions as it features a shimmery lid but the warm tones in the crease make it a lot more wearable.
BURGUNDY & COPPERY HUES:
The next smokey eye look is ideal for light blue and gray eye colors, though it look wonderfully beautiful on brown eye as well. To reach the seamless transition between vivid hues on the lid and pearly highlighter beneath the brows, a matte nude eyeshadow and a soft blending brush are essential. Intensify the look by lining your eyes with a waterproof eye kohl.
Want to switch things up but aren't ready for bold color yet? Go for muted earthy tones in sage and taupe. A muted color palette adds just the right amount of interest to the look without being OTT (over the top) and even adds a bit of a grunge, smoldering effect. Add hints of jewel toned accents to add a little pop to the look and keep it interesting.
Dark and sultry purple smokey eye makeup fits brown and green eyes. To reach the vivid pay-off, prime your eyelids with white eyeshadow primer or use white eye kohl as a base for the purple color. Generously apply purple hues all over your eyelids up to the brow and use black eyeshadow across the entire eyelid. For a gorgeous halo-like effect, line your lower lashline and smudge the same purple eyeshadow across the lower lashline and blend the outer corners for a soft, hazy effect.
Icy blue colors, spiced with minty green and lavender shades, ideally compliment the beauty of blue and green-eyes with cool skin tones. Apply your favorite shade of blue on the eyes and blend it upwards. Use light shimmers to highlight the corners of the eyes. Black eye kohl and a pair of long false lashes will complete the look.
