Every woman who knows a little about make up, whether she's five or fifty, will be able to show you how to do a smoky eye. In saying this I am not suggesting you go and let the nearest five year old give you a makeover... simply making a point here people.
The routine of the smoky eye once grasped is quite easy, you choose three shades - a basic for your lid, a slightly darker one for the base and an even darker one for the crease. But this fall, get ready for a new take on the smoky eye. Its simple, Its stunning and overall effortless. (Perfect for when your running late in the mornings!) Take a look:
The best thing about this is that it looks great whether you want a makeup look for a day at the desk or a night at the bar. The photos above are of LANVIN'S models at his FALL 2011 collection. The trick is to keep your makeup palette fresh and nude. i.e. if you must use facial makeup then stick to foundation, concealer... steer clear of bronzer - instead use a dab of blusher cream to give your skin a fresh glow. Then choose one colour (LANVIN stuck to neutral greys and black) and dab it on around the corner of your eye. You can use the crease of your eye as a guideline for this, stay inside it rather than above and don't venture too much onto the lid! To finish the look off, use some waterproof mascara (It is fall after all, so there is a chance it could rain!) and a dab of lip balm to keep your lips from chapping in the cold.
