30 Nov 2020

Dear warm tones... we had a fun run. Memories of fall times and orange hues were definitely a moment but I think it's time we left you on read for the winder and move on. There's a new trend in our mind and she's mysterious, bold and oh-so cool!

Smokey Eye Shadow Looks

COOL TONES ON OUR MIND

Smokey tones have been around for a hot minute. But what's next with this deep, dark eyeshadow trend? We got you. Here's how to create a smokey eyeshadow look that will have you looking extra holiday ready!

Guide for Smokey Eyeshadow Looks

3 BREATH-TAKING SHADOW LOOKS

  • Reverse Wing: Drawn out and dramatic is an understatement. Using the Smokey and Highlight palette we defined the lower lash line with a gem-toned green then went in with cool-toned blue to officially draw that wing out. It's a trendy way to extend the look of your eyes while also making the color pop!
  • Classic Wrapped Metallic Eye: Tape or no tape when doing a wing? TBH it's not even needed with this easy smokey eye makeup using the Cool Neutrals palette. If you're looking for that OG classic take (with a little bit of sparkle, of course) then give it a try!
  • Extended Smokey Eye: Talk about crease that could cut. This smokey eyeshadow tutorial is an effortless way to shape your eye without all the heavy lifting. Simply deepen your eye crease with a high-pigment shade, then give 3D dimension with a champagne color directly in the center.

    PRO-TIP: The trick to any fierce smokey eye is creating an effortless, diffused finish with zero harsh lines or patches. Basically... blend those shades until your hand cramps.
