depends. if you use liquid, it smudges easier as I've been told. I just use a charcoal gray pencil [revlon or covergirl are really good] and use the spongey end to smear it. sorry I couldn't be more help.
it's true that you don't need expensive products to achieve this look, but do shop around to find a soft pencil. In my experience, the softest pencils are the prestige brands. They wear better, and many are even waterproof. As a makeup artist, I like to use a flat sable brush to blend the line. Try it first by applying tiny dots of color close together, then blending. This is a beautiful look, but don't limit yourself to black--Dark green, plum, brown are all gorgeous!
TAKE YOUR BLACK EYELINER AND DRAW IT ON REALLY THICK....THEN QUICKLY SMUDGE IT UPWARD WITH YOUR FINGER TO BLEND IT AND IT WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT SMOKEY GREY LOOK THEN GO BACK AND LINE AGAIN WITH YOUR BLACK EYELINER. ALSO BE SURE TO LINE THE INNER BOTTOM LID FOR THE FINAL TOUCH. YOU DONT NEED EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS TO ACHIEVE THIS EFFECT EITHER.
Use a pencil to line the eye, then use Kohl or smokey black eye shadow with a brush and swish it back and forth under your eye.
use an eye liner brush or a q tip that might as well work out to make your eye liner smokey effect lol.
Use Kohl, use an eyeliner brush, or q-tip. For more effect smudge it some more with color coordinating eyeshadow
Smudge with a q-tip and if you want a little more effect, lightly brush black eye shadow over your eye lid to even it up.
