Light up a room with this nighttime smoky eye style

Smoky shadow is a cosmetic classic, serving to upgrade your style for work dinners, intimate dates and even club nights with your girl squad. Unfortunately, mastering this makeup look can be a challenge. Too little shadow, and you'll look like you didn't bother. Too much, and you'll be a hot mess.
Designed for those nights you want to remember, this smoky-eye style provides just the right amount of oomph to your routine. Bold brows add a hint of drama, while a nude lip keeps the style sweet. Try this look the next time you want all eyes in the room to be on yours.
