One of the most effective ways to vamp up your look is to rock a smoky eye. Contrary to popular belief, the smoky eye doesn't have to use the color black and isn’t just reserved for nighttime maquillage. Rather, it is a method of applying eyeshadow that creates drama on the eyelids—and you can always shift the colors around to make it fit any ensemble, day or night.

The secret to perfecting the smoky eye look has fascinated women for years. Just Google “smoky eye tutorial” and you'll get over 600,000 results on average! And while there isn’t one patented way to execute this look, it’s always great to find which tricks and tips work best for your facial features and beauty schedule.

This simple tutorial is based on a Beauty Bar cosmetics makeover conducted by Regional Training Manager of Smashbox Cosmetics Robin Flanagan—whose fall forecast you can find here—and Smashbox Philippines’ Chief Makeup Artist Lourd Ramos. Browse through the photos below to see how these experts create a sultry smoky eye look!
