The Smokey Eye – Step By Step Directions For Your “Night Face” Ready to try out a new party look? Most of us have the standard go-to makeup look we use for every day, but there’s something about the holiday season that makes me want to sparkle a little more.

The Smoky Eye Tutorial:

- Brush beige or nude eyeshadow over lid and just under line on lower lid.
- Layer highlighter from corner of eye on upper lid to crease line.
- BLEND. A LOT.
- Add fake lashes, individual ones are easier to handle, just do a few at the corners of the eye if it seems like too much work.
I’ll post pictures of MY Night Face if you post pictures of yours…
