A smoky eye is a look we always love but in the Summer it can feel a little heavy. We're sharing how to update the look for Summer, with a little help from Illamasqua; 3 products are all you need for a beautiful natural smoky eye.

3 Product Summer Smoky Eye

If you have amazing products, you don't always need to use lots and lots to get the look you want. It takes just 3 products for our perfect Summer eye makeup!

The Shadow

The shadows you choose for a smoky eye make all the difference in Summer. Instead of deep blacks and greys, opt for lighter browns and warm peach. It looks beautiful against a tan and much softer for the warmer days. The Illamasqua Vital Palette is just the perfect Summer palette.

To get an easy smoky look, apply the middle shade all over the lid and then press a touch of the lightest colour into the inner corner of the eyes to brighten. Then add smoke and definition by blending the second darkest shade into the outer corner of the eye before lining with the darkest shade.

The Mascara

A slick of great mascara is just what you need to tie a smokey eye together. Make sure you choose a rich dark mascara that won't smudge.

We love the Illamasqua Masquara Gain in Summer. It is the perfect deep black with a wide bristle brush that coats every lash. However, it goes one step further, containing a walnut extract that helps to naturally dye the lashes so they look deep and fluttery even when you're makeup free.

The Brows

We can't ignore brows when we are talking about our eye looks. Gorgeous brows helps frame the whole look and finish everything off. This Summer, more relaxed, natural and feathery brows are very much in and that pairs perfectly with a softer smokey eye for an effortless look.

The Illamasqua Brow Build is ideal for boosting your natural brows, with different shades for different hair colours. Brush brows up and out with the spoolie and the formula will make your brows look naturally fuller and softly defined.

Get the Look Yourself

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
