The Subtle Smoky Eye


I love a good sexy, smokey eye. What do I love even more? A sexy, smoky eye that can be achieved quickly and with only two products. I got inspiration for this look when I watched a “Parisian Girl” makeup tutorial by makeup genius, Charlotte Tilbury.

All you need for this eye look are two products: a black eye pencil, and a medium color shimmer eyeshadow. I chose Noir dualistic eye pencil and Jojo eyeshadow, both by Le Metier de Beaute.

I first drew a thin line across up upper lash line with the black pencil, getting right into the lash line and then flicking the line out slightly at the outer corners. I then took the shimmer shadow and washed it all over the lid, as well as smudged it at the lower lash line. A few coats of your favorite black mascara, and that’s the eyes done! To amp up the look for night, I’ll add a bit more liner on the upper lash line and also on the waterline.

What are your favorite products for achieving a smoky eye?
