5-Minute Smoky Eye

Follow these four simple steps to create the perfect smoky eye! Makeup artist, Mariana Marie, recommends opting for brown over black as a base for everyday-wear, but for a night out, go bold with black!


  1. Begin with a thick line of liquid liner. Brown works great for a softer smoky eye.
  2. Using your finger, smudge the liner evenly across eyelid.
  3. Blend with a neutral shadow
  4. Finish with mascara and a line of liquid liner.
