Smoky eyes are a dramatic finish to a gorgeous formal dress. Learn how create the glamorous smoky eye effect with our easy steps.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 10-20 minutes

Here's How:

Start your art project with a fresh canvas. Apply a thin layer of moisturizer mixed with foundation to the entire eye area. Blend this in really well, then follow up with a very light dusting of powder.

If you have a steady hand, opt for liquid liner. If your prom night nerves have resulted in a shaky arm, choose a power liner which is both more vivid and thus smoky than pencil eyeliner. Apply a thick line to the top lashes, and a sharp, thin line to the bottom lashes.

With dark shadow in hand, concentrate the color below the crease and lighten as you get to your brow bone. If black shadow sounds too harsh, try a navy blue, dark plum, or matte gray.

Curling your lashes is the key to sleek, smoky eyes. Curl for 30 seconds on each side, then repeat. A blast of heat - dipped into hot water, blasted with a blow dryer - before you curl will add extra drama to those lashes.

A great coat of mascara is the icing on the cake. Apply several quick swoops to both eyes, then repeat. A brush of an eyelash comb with eliminate at clumpy extras.

Dramatic eye makeup calls for low-key lips. Go nude or add a swipe of gloss.
Carry a stick of concealer to tame the dreaded "smoky eye smudge."

What You Need:
Foundation with moisterizer
Sharp black pencil or liquid eyeliner
Dark eyeshadow
