How to Create Smokey Eyes (shadow & mascara) in Photoshop
We will use levels adjustment layer to darken the image
Drag midtone slider towards right to darken eyes
Select levels layer mask and add apply image command
check invert option to make the effect apply to darker areas of the image like hair and eyes
Now select eyes and lips with any selection tool of your choice
go to select and choose inverse
fill the selection with black
we need to clean the tonal edges around eyes and lips
we can fix this with blend IF technique
Double click the layer to open the blending options window.
Dragging white slider to the left prevents the lighter tones from the active layer from being blended
Holding down the Alt key (Option Key for a Mac)
and clicking on White sliders will split the slider into two sliders
drag the slider completely towards left
similarly do the same for underlying layer
still there is slight dark edge appearing. Take soft overlay brush and paint on it to make it invisible
make sure to select layer mask before painting
If we want more darker lashes and shadow then simply duplicate layer and adjust opacity
That’s it. We’re done.
