How To: 5 Steps to the perfect smokey eye

Smoke eye hero

It's party time ladies! The holiday season is here and we've got you covered for all things beauty. Right now it's all about the Smokey Eye - sexy, mysterious and adventurous, the smokey eye is the perfect evening look to make you feel powerful. 

  1. Prep eyelids with a creamy shadow primer to encourage staying power.
  2. Line the upper and lower inner lash lines using a creamy kajal stick.
  3. Dust a deep, charcoal shade across the lids using a soft brush. Starting from the outer corner of each eye, working across toward the inner corner. 
  4. Blend colour to just below the brow bone, and extend down along the lower lash line, smudging using your fingertip.
  5. Apply a light dusting of white shadow to the inner corners, before finishing with a generous coat of mascara. 

HOT TIP: In the warmer months, opt for brown shades as an alternative to black for a more natural feel, adding a shimmy power on top to dress it up!
