Smokey eyes don't necessarily mean blacks, greys and browns...

Somkey eyes mean that the colour is concentrated at one place and then it gradually fades into nothing. Smokey eyes can be created with any colour, even lighter shades of colours. There are several ways to do smokey eyes. The most common type is when the colour is concentrated near the lash-line and is blended and fades towards the brows. 

The second type is when the lid colour is a lighter shade and the darker colour is concentrated at the outer corner of the eyes and blended inwards.

The third is when the lid is light and the crease is darker and blended above towards the brows.

Smokey eye looks can be created with any colour, it doesn't  even need to be a darker shade of colour. Here are some examples of colourful smokey eyes...
