Makeup Tutorial on the Smoky Eye Runway Trends

How to Update the Smoky Eye This Season

The smoky eye is getting a makeover this season. Gone are the days of the monotone black shadow covering the lids. Now, this makeup staple is coming in new colours and shapes. Get tips for creating these smoky eye looks from the runways whether it's winged, under-eye, or highbrow.

Up and away: As seen on the Versace runway, the smoky eye is getting a tilt. While winged eyeliner is an ever-present trend, extended eye shadow shapes are becoming more prominent, too. To get this look, bring shadow from the crease to the end of the brows. Then curve the end back around to line the lower lashes.

From down under: Shadow is no longer just for your lids. Colours (and the smoky eye) are bleeding down underneath the eye, as at L'Wren Scott. The key to mastering this under-eye technique is to use waterproof products to avoid smudging or smearing. Apply product with an angled brush so that your liner doesn't turn out too thick.

Highbrow: Burberry sent a brown smoky eye down the runway, which is a safe alternative to black. And this colour reached all the way up to the brows for a full patch effect. If you're looking to get a similar style, blend colour up above the crease. Leave just under the arch clear for a spot of highlighter.
