The smokey eye look is surprisingly easy to do! In this five-minute tutorial, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury shows us how to do a smokey eye look that can be either subtle for day or dramatic for a night out.
No matter your age—18 or 80—smokey eyes are flattering. "When you smoke and wing your makeup, your eyes appear wider and you lift the entire area," says Charlotte Tilbury, a London-based makeup artist and the founder of Charlotte Tilbury Beauty, whose clients include Alicia Vikander, Kate Moss, and Martha Hunt. "Once you learn the basics, you can dial the look up or down depending on the occasion." Even better, you don't have to stick to black. It can be green or any other shade; the technique stays the same. Here, Tilbury shares her best tips for mastering an easy smokey eye look for day or night in just five minutes.
