How to achieve the perfect smoky eye

soft, simple and smoky

Just uttering the words “smoky eyes” can cause so many of us to run a mile – right back to our trusty mascara – for fear of it all going wrong. But smoky eyes don’t have to be scary. Armed with a personalised Smoky Eye Stack and some expert tips from wonderful Pro Makeup Artist John, you’ll see that smoky eyes can be as easy as they are eye-catching...

Eye2Eye in Empress

“To start our smoky eye look, Empress is a bronze, rustic eye shade with a sprinkle of gold that’s perfect for a soft base.”

Eye2Eye in Emperor

“Emperor is a rich chocolate brown that we’re applying to the outer corners of the eye and the lower lash line to create more depth and more drama. Eye2Eye has a lovely creamy formula, so it’s really easy to blend the two shades together to create that perfect smoke.”

Lip2Cheek in Freddie

“Freddie is a flattering true terracotta that’s the perfect neutral for Jilda’s complexion – so it doesn’t distract from that smoky eye look.”

Sheer Shimmer in Bunny

“Placing the Sheer Shimmer on the highest points of Jilda’s cheekbones and a small amount on the lips finishes off the look with a beautiful glossy shine.”
