Smoky Eyes

The most in-your-face of all the eye trends, smoky eyes ignite your look and leave you needing little other makeup. But they’re not as intimidating to create as they appear. To begin, pick a color palette. There are no rules: It’s a matter of how adventurous you’re feeling.

How-to: Sarah Lucero, a celebrity makeup artist with Stila Cosmetics, started with two purple tones, brushing the darker over the lighter to build intensity from the lash line to just above the crease. “Don’t go too far up the lids—the color will bleed upward naturally,” she says. Next, using a pencil that’s slightly deeper than the shadow, draw a line just above the upper lashes to a bit past the outer eye, then do the same below the lower lashes. Follow with a black kohl liner on the inner rims of the lower lashes. A quick hit of shimmery powder in the centers of the upper lids, black mascara, and nude lip gloss and you’re, well, smokin’ hot.
