How to Create the Perfect Smoky Eye



1. Apply foundation and concealer under the eyes. Use light brush and bronzer under the cheekbones to give the face shape and structure. Fill in brows using a shade lighter than the brows to add shape with a bold eye.

2. Use pale, shimmery gold color from corner of the eye all the way to brow bone. A gold eye is best for warmer complexions (like our models) while silver tones are more suited for paler complexions.Use the same color to dab onto the bridge of the nose.

3. Put a darker, golden bronze under the eyes right to where the eyelashes stop and put the same shadow into creases. Then, use a lighter gold onto the middle of the eyelid.

5. For the last step to create a smoky eye, curl lashes and layer on mascara on top and bottom lashes. Apply either something nude for day or a vibrant red for evening onto your lips.
