1. Use a medium-size round brush to apply charcoal gray powder in an arch shape just above the crease of the lid. Then blend down to the lash line.

2. Trace the upper lash line with a soft black pencil, then gently smudge with your fingertip.

3. With a smaller, firm-bristle brush, press a gunmetal shade into the lower lash line.

4. Apply a pale silver powder to the inner corners of the eyes to lighten the overall effect.

5. Pile on mascara.

Heres more options given:

Add a Modern Twist
Purple is a modern take on the smoky eye. Apply pale violet shadow on the lids, then blend a dark plum shadow into the creases. Rim lower lashes with black liner and top with a layer of lilac shadow applied with a wet brush.

Make It Last
"For a smoky eye, moisturize the area first, so when you line the lid with a pencil it will smudge naturally." --Ellen Pompeo

Make It Fast
For a smoky eye in a flash, use just eyeliner. Rim lids with a black pencil, making the line quite heavy; then wipe it off. You’ll be left with a sexy wash of color.

Remember, Smokey eye doesn't have to be black or gray only, you can try it with other colors like purple, brown and gold, pink, blue... Be creative!
