What you'll need:
-Black or charcoal eyeliner
-Metallic silver, shimmery dark gray, black shadows (or a smoky eye kit)
What you'll do:
Step One: Line your upper and lower lash lines with your black or charcoal eyeliner. Apply it as close to your lash line as possible.
Step Two: Blend your silver eyeshadow into the crease of your eyelid, fading it out as you get closer to your brow.
Apply your dark gray shadow to your lid and outer crease. Also blend a bit into the outside edge of your bottom lash line.
Blend black shadow into your upper and lower lash lines. If there are any imperfections in your eyeliner, this will fix ‘em right up! Make it darkest at the outer corner of your eye, creating the shape of a "V."
Step Five: Add a light coat of black mascara and...voila! You've mastered the smokey eye in minutes.
