How To: Summer’s Soft, Smoky Eye
When it comes to warm-weather eye makeup, we always think less is more. (Largely because black shadow and balmy weather just don’t mix.) Here, a simple step-by-step to sexy, gilded lids (reminiscent of the look at Gucci’s Spring 2014 show) courtesy of The Huffington Post:
1. Base lids with a long-wear cream shadow. (HuffPo recommends Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in My Two Cents.)
2. Top off the cream formula with powders—using a taupe shade on the brow bone and inner corner, bronze on the lid, and matte brown to define the crease. (For more drama, smudge bronze shadow along your bottom lash lines.)
3. Apply black gel liner between lashes and rim your lower waterline with a nude liner.
4. Finish with black mascara to prevent lashes from looking “dusty.”
