The smokey eye

Women's Fitness (UK) - - Glow -

No party sea­son is com­plete with­out a clas­sic smokey eye. But if yours tend to be more black-eye than bold eye, here's Steve Douch from STV (stv­cos­met­ics. com) to show us how it's done, us­ing STV'S cru­elty free and en­durance­based range. Method

Step 1. Us­ing a long-last­ing liner in black (or brown for a softer look), go crazy and be im­per­fect, smudg­ing the pen­cil into the lash line. Then cre­ate a small V-shape into the socket, and, us­ing an eye­shadow brush, care­fully blend to soften.

Step 2. Us­ing STV Cos­met­ics Eye­shadow Pal­ette in Magic Bul­let, dab Steel Blue over the liner and up to the socket line of the eyes with fin­ger tips or an eye­shadow brush. Then blend, work­ing this un­der the lash line to en­hance the eyes. Use Black Shim­mer from the pal­ette and work this into the lash line, fin­ish with high­light into the in­ner corners of the eyes and work this onto the tops of the cheek bones, and down the cen­tre of the nose and the top of the cupid's bow.

Step 3. One of the most im­por­tant steps is to frame those eyes and work a lit­tle brown pen­cil or shadow into the eye­brows and brush through, add plenty of mas­cara to en­hance the lashes and fin­ish the look.

Step 4. Us­ing STV Cos­met­ics Ex­treme Matte Lip­stick in colour Role Model, dab on the lips to en­hance nat­u­rally. For a more strik­ing look, ap­ply di­rectly from the lip­stick or use a lip brush for ap­pli­ca­tion.
