The Beauty Edit: The Smoky Eye

Create the Perfect Party Look, This look will take you from day to night. The Smoky Eye. One of our classic favorite beauty looks. Here is a step by step of how to create this eye in 5 minutes.

First step Pick a multitonal eye-shadow palette, our favorite is the Carine Roitfield by Mac Cosmetic Set.  Prime your lid by patting on regular foundation, this will form a base for your makeup to stick to.

  1.  Dip the tip of a dampened makeup brush into the darkest shadow, and draw a line across your upper and lower lash lines.
  2. From the creases of the eye you’ll want to fill up to with your contouring, medium shadow color, or you can use a pop of color here.
  3. Rub the softest color in your palette above the creases and up to the brow bones to highlight. Also rub the softest color around the corners of your eye.
  4. Trace on one last layer of the darkest color as liner, and smudge it with your finger or a cotton swab for a blurred effect.
  5. Add on your fake eyelashes and re-line  your eye with the darker eyeshadow color.

Now for the rest of face, use the mineralize bronze powder at the high point of your cheek bone to give yourself a glowing soft look. Done! Next step, go rock this shit!!!!
