This season’s smoky eye is softer and more wearable than ever

We all love a classic smoky eye but, let’s face it, while it’s a look that turns heads for night-time, it’s a bit harsh and heavy for every day or at the office. The good news is that the new season brings with it a subtler, softer smoky eye that looks incredible (and appropriate) when worn day or night. Here’s how it’s done.

Step 1

Begin by using a creamy eyeliner to subtly line and define both the top and lower lashes.

 

Step 2

Grab a light, fluffy brush, choose a softer ‘smoky’ shade from your palette (grey, taupe, mauve or satin brown are your best bets) and sweep a small amount across your lids. The glittery Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette or crease-proof Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette 04 are excellent choices. Blend it well to ensure that there are no harsh lines.

Step 3

Using your fingertips, dab a tiny bit of white or beige eyeshadow (highlighter also works) onto the corner of your eye to further lighten the look.

 

Step 4

Say no to mascara. This eyeshadow style looks so much better without it!

Step 5

Keep the rest of your face simple with minimal coverage and a nude lip.

Easy, soft, subtle. Girl, you look smokin’!
