A New Take on the Smokey Eye

Under eyes: Make Up For Ever HD Concealer in 325

Eyeliner: MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

Eye shadow: NARS Eyeshadow in Ashes to Ashes, Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in shade 15

Eyebrows: filled with MAC eyebrow crayon in Fling

Eyelashes: first coat – Make Up For Ever Smokey Lash

Cheeks and lips: bare

This is a take on the smokey eye done with purpley-gray tones.  This look is super easy because it only requires four steps and you can do part of it with your fingers!  Also no precise eyeliner expertise required.

I applied NARS Ashes to Ashes shadow over my entire lid, from the lash line diffusing above the crease.  In the inner corners of my eye, I extended the shadow all the way to my brow, but left my actual brow bone bare.

I applied the same shadow below my lower lash line from corner to corner.

Next, I applied the Aqua Cream all around the eye (top and bottom) just against the lash line, almost like an eyeliner. I did this with my fingers so it should be smudgey and imperfect. The Aqua Cream shadow is a similar color as Ashes to Ashes, but darker, so it creates a color gradient on the eye.

Last, I applied Blacktrack to the top and bottom inner rims of my eyes and plenty of mascara.
