The Easy Smokey Eye you can wear day or night

The Easy Smokey Eye you can wear day or night

The classic smoky eye is a makeup technique that everyone should have in their arsenal. Not only does it give you an instant sultry, smoldering, rockstar vibe, it’s endlessly customizable with different eye color shades, textures, and finishes. Unfortunately, it can also be hard to master. Maybe it’s the fact that it involves so much blending—or that if you mess up, it’s hard to go back. Either way, we’re always looking for ways to make our smoky eyes quicker and easier.

Enter the newest addition to Charlotte Tilbury’s basically genius Instant Look in a Palette line: Smokey Eye Beauty. It has everything you need to create a dreamy, glowing, hazy look, and its color-by-numbers design makes it ridiculously easy to follow. It also includes some iconic Charlotte Tilbury cult classics: the bronzer from Filmstar Bronze & Glow, the two blush shades from Cheek to Chic in First Love, and Bar of Gold highlighter. Here, we walk through how to use the palette to create a soft, subtle smoky eye for day and how to amp it up for night.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
STEP 1
Start with a Clear, Even Base

Apply foundation and concealer to even out your complexion, if desired. Above, Jinghan wears Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation in 2 Fair mixed with an equal amount of Wonderglow for a more dewy finish, plus The Retoucher in 1 Fair under her eyes and around her nose.

STEP 2
Prime and Brighten Your Eyes

Using a flat eye shadow brush like Chikuhodo GSN 9, pack the Eye Brighten shade from the Smokey Eye Beauty palette onto your lid with a pressing and patting motion. Start at the lashline and blend upward to the crease in a half-moon shape.

STEP 3
Create a Soft Wing

With the same pressing motion, apply Eye Brighten to the outer corner of the eye in a wing shape. Use a fluffy blending brush, like Wayne Goss Brush 19, to blend the edges. Your wing should be shaped like a cat eye but without any harsh lines.

STEP 4
Define the Lashline

With a precision brush (we used Wayne Goss Brush 05 here), blend the Eye Enhance shade from the palette along your upper and lower lashline. This soft, warm brown shade creates subtle definition.

STEP 5
Add Some Smoke

Drag Eye Enhance out towards your hairline to create a soft, feathered wing. Most of the product should remain on your lashline so that the wing has a subtle, smoky look.

STEP 6
Finish with Eyeliner and Mascara

Apply brown eyeliner to your waterline and upper lashline. You can also use your precision brush to create a soft wing with the eyeliner. Curl your lashes and apply a volumizing mascara. Jinghan wears Rock ‘N’ Kohl in Barbarella Brown and Full Fat Lashes.
