I am always into a good sexy, smudgy smoky eye. I've had this photo of Karlie Kloss with the perfect glittery smoky eye sitting on my desktop for the longest time and I finally decided to give it a try.
I prefer my makeup to look a bit "lived-in", so I mostly used my finger and Q-tips to rub the eyeshadow across my upper lid. First, I started with Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 'Illusoire', then I layered on a Mac pigment in 'Dark Soul'. It can get really messy, so I used a little at a time and built from there. Then I dipped a Q-tip into the pigment and went under my lower lashline. To make it a bit more dramatic, I took black pencil liner into my top lashes and along my water line. Apply a couple swipes of mascara and a bit of Nars The Multiple in 'Maui' on the cheekbones and lips and you are good to go.
