The Look: Smokey Eyes

06 Mar 2011

Getting a sultry eye can be tricky, but not with these tips from makeup artist Bobbi Brown...

Go for a medium smokey shade and apply it over three-quarters of your eyelid, gradually building up the colour intensity as preferred.

After applying lashings of mascara, then comes the first of the eyeliners. Using a pencil, draw a line on the inside and outside of your under eye.

Then, using Bobbi Brown’s essential gel eyeliner, draw a line on your upper lid with a brush, close to your lash line and as thick as you dare.

For the fourth and final step, take a darker shade and, with either a brush or finger, blend and smudge until you achieve your finished look.
