There's a reason the classic smokey eye is a timeless look. It always looks special for a night out. An eye shadow palette with three different shades and a simple eyeliner are all you need to create this sultry yet sophisticated look.
1. Take a light-colored eye shadow and apply it all over your lid. Start at the lash line and go all the way up past your crease.
2. Take a deeper shade and apply it your crease as well as to the outer "V" of your eye.
3. Apply the darkest shade to your lash line.
4. Line the rims of your eyes with a light liner — try a purple if you're feeling funky — and gently smudge it. Add mascara for a complete look, and even a set of lashes for extra drama.
