Ahead of the 2021 summer season, smokey eyes are back in the spotlight in super dramatic versions! Let’s find out together what are the most interesting trends for the eye makeup most loved by women and stars around the world.
Smokey Eyes Trends 2021
The soft smokey eyes trend with light shades has accompanied us in recent months. Thanks to the masks, which limit the use of lip products, the look remains the absolute protagonist among the 2021 beauty trends. Dominating the scene are the dark and intense tones of the classic smokey eyes. A bit of a surprise for the hot season, the Spring Summer catwalks saw a lot of smokey eyes in super intense black, grey and brown tones. For a bold and incredibly sexy eye makeup!
Dark Smokey Eyes For 2021
Dark smokey eyes and black ones in particular, have historically been a beloved eye makeup of divas past and present. Its origins can even be traced back to the Sumerians, who used to define their eyes with very intense black powders. In the last century, it was the 1920s that saw the triumph of dark smokey eyes, the basis of noir makeup, still considered very trendy today.
Smokey eyes made with dark shades are the favorite of celebrities for red carpet occasions and for social shots with millions of likes, as well as the most requested by designers on the catwalk, as demonstrated by Chanel this year.
The Dark Smokey Eyes Trend For 2021
For the Chanel Spring Summer 2021 fashion show, the Maison’s Global Creative Make Up and Colour Designer Lucia Pica wanted only magnetic smokey eyes inspired by the world of cinema. Minimalist glamour and beauty looks that pay homage to Hollywood divas are the basis of the make-up proposal for the next hot season.
In particular, to create the Chanel eye makeup, Grey powders from the Blurry Grey Palette and Black powders from the Modern Glamour Palette have been mixed together, adding a touch of black mascara only on the upper lashes. All combined with a strictly matt face makeup. In contrast, the lip makeup was created with a light touch of Le Crayon Lèvres Nude Brun pencil and Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Modern lipstick in nude shades. Do you like Chanel make up?

How To Make The Trendy Smokey Eyes Of 2021
As you can easily imagine, making such an intense and dramatic makeup requires the right products, in order to achieve a perfect shade. Therefore, we must start with products that are writing and not powdery. The first step is definitely to choose a good eye primer that guarantees the hold of eye shadows. We then choose the right black pencil to use as a base. For example, we can use the black pencil from MAC’s Kajal Crayon line, designed precisely to create perfect smokey eyes! These products have a rich and saturated coloration, which promises to last long without melting.
The next step is to identify palettes in which to find much pigmented powders suitable for defining our shade. A few examples? The darker colors of the Chanel Ombre Premiere Eyeshadow line, but we can also focus on the different shades of gray of the Natasha Denona Glam palette or even on the highly pigmented matt eyeshadow of the Huda Beauty Haze Obsessions palette designed precisely for this type of eye makeup.
After applying and blending the pencil, we move on to the dark eyeshadow, to be applied from the lash line to the lower part of the mobile eyelid. We carefully and patiently blend the chosen dark eyeshadow (black, anthracite, and blue, brown) with slightly lighter shades moving upwards to create a “smoky” and sophisticated shade. We can also complete the look with a touch of pencil in the lower rim or replace the pencil with the same dark eyeshadows we used on the eyelid. An eye make up with which we can hardly go wrong! It is also perfect as a makeup for those who have protruding eyes, because it softens this feature.
Even Hugo Boss and Giorgio Armani suggest a lipstick in neutral colors to keep the focus on the eyes. Some interesting suggestions? The lipsticks from the Bobbi Brown New Real Nudes collection or the Natasha Denona I Need A Nude!
