Most of us wear a smoky eye for evenings beacuse it’s simple, and looks amazing. While black will continue to be the traditional color for this look, this season the smoky eye gets an update using grey tones and metallics that can also be worn during the day.
Try these products to achieve your new smoky eye:
Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Paris is a fabulous combination of two coordinating greys (silver shimmer and matte grey) that can be worn together or alone, wet or dry. Try applying the matte grey shade on the entire lid, and apply the silver shimmer to the eye’s inner rim and along the bottom lasheline for a long-wearing, eye-popping look. $32
Rimmel Colour Rush Quad Eyeshadow in Smokey Noir includes four grey tones that are long-lasting and versitile. Try using the darker shades as a liner when wearing the lighter tones for a subtle yet defined daytime eye. $5.99
