Here’s how to get sexy, smoky eyes for a glam evening look, in just 4 easy steps!

Get smoky eyes in four easy steps! 

You’ll need: black kohl eyeliner, two smoky coloured eyeshadows, a highlighter shade and jet-black mascara.

Step 1:

Use black eyeliner to line the top and bottom eyelids. Make the top line thinner towards the inner corner and thicker around the outer corner

Step 2:

Apply a smoky-grey shade to the entire eyelid, extending the colour to just above the crease.

Step 3:

Choose an eyeshadow a shade darker than the one you used on the lid but from the same colour family. Apply it to the outer corner of the eyelid, blending outwards and upwards to create a cat-eye effect.

Step 4:

Use a highlighter shade to accentuate the eyebrow bone and the inner corner of the eye to create the illusion of brighter eyes. Apply volumising mascara – and you’re ready to party!
