Pro brows and slightly smoky eye

When trying to decide on makeup for a special event, you're often faced with a conundrum. You want to look polished and as though you've made the effort — but sometimes, you also want to keep it simple. Being able to look both understated and unmistakably "done" is quite a difficult skill to master.
But, as with lots of makeup, it all comes down to application. By going for neutral shades and classic vibes, you can ensure you look glamorous without ever looking over the top. This look, which combines clean, sculpted brows with a surprisingly subtle smoky eye, is perfect.

1. Start by using a cool-toned brow powder on a small angled brush. Use this to sketch out the shape of your eyebrows.
2. Next, take a deeper shade of brow pomade. Use this to draw individual, hair-like strokes around the front of each brow.
3. Apply a cream foundation using a small, flat brush. Use this shade to draw around the edges of your eyebrows to properly define them. Diffuse the edges of the foundation with a fluffy brush.
4. Using a flat eye shadow brush, apply a cream eye shadow base to both lids.
5. Line the upper lash line with a bronze kohl liner. Blend out with a fluffy brush.
6. Take a shimmery copper eye shadow on a fluffy brush. In the tutorial we used the shade Lulu from the Juvia’s Place The Saharan Palette. Work this shade across the lid and lower lash line.
7. With a black kohl eye pencil, apply to the upper and lower lash line. Blend with a pencil brush.
8. Take a warm matte brown eye shadow — we chose Katsina from the same Juvia's Place palette — and work this shade into the crease to blend out the black kohl pencil further.
9. Use a matte black eye shadow — we used Chad from the Juvia's Place palette — and apply lightly over the kohl liner to smoke it out.
10. Use a shimmery golden highlighter on a detailer brush to enhance the inner corner.
11. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes. For even more drama, apply a strip lash.
