Makeup How-To: Nude Smoky Eye

Bronzes, coppers, and light browns make for a sultry date-night look and work on any eye color.



Step 1. Natural, cream-based eyeshadow. Blend a pearlescent cream shadow from lash line to crease.

Step 3. Highlight with a metallic eyeliner. Apply a bronze eyeliner pencil to the upper and lower lash line and smudge with your finger.

Step 4. Make your eyes pop with a light liner. Apply a nude eyeliner to the waterline and inner corner to create a subtle contrast.

Step 5. Fake that "sparkle" in your eye. Dab a shimmery beige shadow in the center of the lid and inner corner of the eye with your finger.

Step 6. Finish the look. Apply brown mascara to top and bottom lashes.
