Watch: Deola of Omogemura shows us all the smokey eye makeup hacks

The Smokey Eye beauty trend came into prominence with the Kardashians, borrowed from the much harsher rock and metal beauty scene and softened for every day wear. Most people rarely attempt the smokey eye look because they have the misconception that smokey eye looks can only be done with black or dark hues or they’ve had a bad run-in that left them looking like a raccoon. Deola Adebiyi, editor of, thinks we’re getting it all wrong.

In her new Youtube tutorial Deola shows us that Smokey Eyes can be subtle, they can fun and monochromatic and they can be high glamour without any raccoon eyes. She guides us through the process of making a subtle day look with brown hues, a monochromatic look with shades of green and a glam smokey eye with dark highlights and a red lip.

Here’s the whole thing.
