Eye Makeup Tutorial: Sexy, Smoky Eyes
Wizardly makeup artist Matin Maulawizada shares his step-by-step directions for all-out evening eye makeup.
Apply eyeliner.
Step One
First, prep the skin around your eye and do your makeup for day . Before you add more color for evening, dust translucent powder under the eye with a big powder brush to catch any falling shadow. Apply a black powder shadow (like Nyx Shadow for Eyes in Black) close to the lashline, on top and underneath. On top, blend it with your finger from the lashes up to the crease.

Never: Drag the liner brush across the lashline. Gently press it in instead.
