Six easy steps to the ultimate smoky-eye look.


Step 1: The Base-ics

Start with a soothing, firming eye serum such as Dior’s Capture Totale Eyes Essential Eye Zone Boosting Super Serum (US$70) to make sure you’re putting your best eyes forward.


Step 2: Highlight

Start on the inner eye and sweep YSL’s Touche Éclat (US$46) across the lower eye zone where you’re prone to dark circles and discolouration. Apply a little highlight on the outer corner for a wide-awake glow.


Step 3: Blurred Lines

Using a blendable eyeliner such as Giorgio Armani’s Smooth Silk in Black (US$25), draw a thick line along the lash line on both the lower and upper lids. Using the blender at the bottom of the pencil, lightly blend upwards on the top lid and horizontally on the bottom lid, taking care not to spread the colour too much.


Step 4: Work the Magic

Sweep the second-darkest colour in Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad in colour 1 – Maestro (US$66) all along the top lid, from the outer corner of the eye towards the inner corner and all the way up to the crease.

Step 5: Accent

Draw a thick line with the darkest colour in the palette on the upper lid, blending upwards towards the crease. Draw the same thick line on the lower lid and lightly blend only up to the top half of the bottom lid.


Step 6: Add the Drama

Define the lashes with a jet-black mascara such as Diorshow in Catwalk Black (US$38), and you’ve successfully created the ultimate smoky eye!

For a handy all-in-one palette that contains everything you’ll need for a smoky eye (and more for lips and cheeks), check out Lancôme’s Absolu Voyage palette.
