How to Create a Smokey Eye With Smashbox Eyeshadows

by Patty Espinoza

I will be showing you how to create a smokey eye using the Wondervision Smashbox palette. Of course feel free to use any eyeshadows you have on hand that are similar in color! Hope you like it! :)


  • Smashbox Wondervision Palette in Cosmic
  • Eyeshadow Brushes
  • Eyeshadow Primer (NARS Pro-Prime used)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    The first step is to prime your lids with eyeshadow primer. The best primer I've ever used is this one by NARS its their Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base but use whichever one you want or have!

    Step 2

    This is the palette I will be using but feel free to sub each shade with the closest one you have if you don't have this particular palette. :)

    Step 3

    Start by applying the shade Aqua (metallic aquamarine color) on to your lid. I am trying to stay on my lid and not go up into my crease but I don't have that much space so do your best!

    Step 4

    Ok so now I have Aqua all over my lid. It should look like this. This also lets you see my flimsy little eyelashes which I will fix later with falsies. Lol

    Step 5

    Next I am taking the shade Smoke (a matte dark grey) and blending it into my crease and into the aqua color on my lid.

    Step 6

    Keep blending and blending it into the crease. Keep using more as needed.

    Step 7

    I am also putting a little bit of that Smoke color onto my lower lashline but just on the outer corner.

    Step 8

    It should look like this so far.

    Step 9

    Next I have taken some of the Sapphire shade (a shimmery blue black color) and applied it just to my outer V, my outer corner of my eye and crease only. I am using a smaller brush to apply it.

    Step 10

    Keep blending and blending. It should look like this after you've finished.

    Step 11

    Next with a very small brush take the shade Luster (a deep taupe color) and apply to the lower lash line all over the bottom.

    Step 12

    With a small brush I am taking the shade Silver (a metallic champagne silver color) and applying it just to my inner corner for a nice highlight.

    Step 13

    Last I am taking the shade Sandstone (a light matte beige color) and applying it to my browbone.

    Step 14

    Ok once you've done all of those steps your eyeshadow should look like this!

    Step 15

    To finish the look I've applied some liquid eyeliner. I am using L'oreal's Carbon Black Liner Intense and false eyelashes from E.L.F. I've applied Smashbox Full Exposure mascara to my bottom lashes.

    Step 16

    This is the end result.
