    Now, come to the shade of your eye shadow. For base colour you can use almond or gray shades. For darker shade, it can either be black, gray, brown, copper, bronze, whichever shade you like.  Keep in mind that the secret of perfect smokey eye makeup lies in proper blending. One more thing you should consider when choosing the shades of  the eye shadow is that you use light shade for your lips. As smokey eyes give a very intense look, with very bright lips, the makeup will become heavy and overdone.
