The Sexiest Smoky Eye

The typical smoky eye is a makeup look beloved by most of Hollywood's hottest starlets. Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Duff and more have all rocked this look at one time or another. Smoky eyes are often paired with a nude lip for a come hither makeup look that's positively smoldering. Next time you get ready for a big costume party, consider pairing a sexy smoky eye with your sexy costume. Follow the steps below to achieve your perfect smoky eye. 

1. Apply a cream concealer over your eyelid to create a smooth base for your eyeshadow.
2. Use a pencil liner (black or gray looks best) to trace your top lashline from the inner corner to the outer. Then, use the same pencil to dot between your lower lashes. Smudge both lashlines with a cotton swab or an eyeliner brush.
3. Sweep powder shadow (brown, gray and dark green all work with black or gray liner) over your lid and into your crease, blending the color up and outward, says New York City makeup artist Morgen Schick DeMann.

TIP: To prevent color from fading and give your lids a more shimmery finish, pat a cream shadow over the concealer on your lid first, wait five minutes, then top with a matching powder shadow.
4. Dust a lighter, neutral eyeshadow (such as ivory) over just your browbone.
5. Finish with two coats of black mascara.
