Turn Up The Glamour This Party Season: Modern Smokey Eye

So how can you make yourself stand out above the rest this party season? With beautiful, flawless makeup. The smokey eye had been a mainstay for a few years now, having become so popular that we are including the more subtle "daytime smokey eye" now, so we can wear it day and night! A modern approach to the traditional smokey eye is creating more balance between the eye makeup and the lips. Keeping the face well-balanced and lips nude is key to this look! 

Get the Look:

With eyes that ooze sexiness the rest of the face should be well-balanced with a flawless base. In particular, with darker pigmented eyes, a good concealer under the eye is essential to keep it looking bright. A natural looking brown blush 2 shades darker than your skintone should be applied to the contours of the cheeks to chisel them out!

Base: Giorgio Armani Fluid Master Primer: smooth's skin's surface & refines pores. Giorgio Armani Desinger Lift Foundation: Unique stretching Micro-fil technology drapes the face with an ultra-fine micro-lifting matrix. Benefit Erase Paste under the eyes. 

Eyes: YSL Palette Noir-Terriblement: Palette has 5 shades, four variations of black and a shimmering white in the middle. Use an eye primer or pop some foundation on your lid, then add a matte cream all over to set. Start with the darkest black near your lashline and work your way up gradually with the lighter blacks. Add Giorgio Armani Maestro Liquid Eyeliner to the upper lashline and slighly buff out the edges. Pop the shimmering white in the inner corners of the eye and add Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Excess Mascara to accentuate the eyes with more depth and intensity. Finally add MAC false lashes in #42 and the eyes are done. 

Blush: MAC Harmony

Lips: Giorgio Armani Rouge D'Armani Lipstick for fall 2011 in Sheer Beige. 

Nails: YSL La Laque in Beige Nude

Set your makeup with Giorgio Armani Silk Powder.
