Master the Smoky Eye in 5 Easy Steps

Smoky eyes are a popular look for dramatic beauty that turns heads and
never goes out of style. The following tools are all you need to turn your
pretty peepers into sultry, smoky eyes.

Light Eye Shadow
for Base Color

Begin by blending a light base color across your entire lid from the lash base all the way up to the brow. Sally Girl Eye Shadow Connecting Compact in Beige ($0.99) contrasts nicely with dark shadow.

Dark Black Shadow to Define Eye Contour

Using an eye shadow brush or sponge applicator, blend Palladio Baked Eye Shadow in Jet Black ($6.99) from your lash base to just below the crease. Then, dip the Femme Couture Flat Eyeliner Brush ($5.99) into the shadow and line along your lower lashes for the ultimate smoky effect.

Light Black Shadow to Intensify Crease Contour

Apply a charcoal eye shadow such as Femme Couture Baked Eye Shadow in Black Cloud ($6.99) in the crease. Blend it with the darker shadow and extend it up toward the eyebrow.

Pearlescent Color for Added Impact

Add a pearly eye shadow directly under your eyebrows and in the interior corner of the eyes to really make them pop. Try Palladio Baked Eye Shadow in Snow ($6.99).

Eyeliner for Definition, Mascara for Volume

Draw a line along top and bottom lashes with Palladio Liquid Eyeliner in Shimmer Black ($5.99). And last, apply two coats of Femme Couture Curl Couture Mascara in Blackest Black ($7.99). It goes on thick without clumping, and its curved brush helps curl lashes.

Eyes are said to be the windows to a person's soul and with the Real Colors Glitter Eyes Glitz 'n Glam Kit ($12.99) many eye looks can be created. A compact kit that lets you create all-over lid color, define eye contour, intensify crease contour, light up your eyes, define eye lines and volumize eyelashes.
