With nine neutral shades, the Flora-01 in Matte Agave palette is perfect for creating both daytime and nighttime smoky eyes.

  1. Prime your eyelids: Apply Wu-Prime Eye Primer to create a smooth base for your eyeshadow and make it last longer.

  2. Choose a dark eyeshadow: Pick a dark eyeshadow shade like black, dark brown, or dark gray and apply it to your crease and outer corner using a fluffy brush. Blend well to create a smoky effect.

  3. Add depth: Apply a slightly lighter eyeshadow shade to the center of your eyelid and blend it into the darker shade. This will add depth and dimension to your look.

  4. Smoke it out: Use a smudger brush or your finger to smudge the dark eyeshadow along your lower lash line to make the look more dramatic.

  5. Highlight: Apply a light, shimmery eyeshadow like our Single Ready To Sparkle Shadow to your inner corner and under your brow bone to highlight and brighten your eyes.

  6. Finish with eyeliner: Line your upper and lower lash line with our Kitty Dual Liner in black to add definition. You can also smudge the liner for a more smoky effect.

  7. Finish with mascara: Apply two coats of our Hot Fluff Lash-01 Volume & Length Mascara to your upper and lower lashes to complete the look.

Remember to blend well and build the intensity of the shadow gradually, instead of applying too much at once.
