The smoky eye look, made popular by reality stars like Kim Kardashian, was one of the biggest fashion crazes of 2011, but it looks like metallic eyeshadow could supplant it in 2012. According to InStyle.com, metallic eyeshadow is a fabulous choice for fashionistas stuck in the winter doldrums and can combine easily with tube mascara and liquid eyeliner.
After using eyeshadow primer to form a base for your makeup, you should start with a bit of black powder liner around the perimeter of your eyes and then smudge it to create a shadowing effect.
Next, all you need to do is put on a layer of black, glittering eyeshadow on your base to have a dazzling look that can combine with winter's hottest fashion trends. Since the look can be a bit intense, be sure to keep your lips nude or in a pale shade.
Best of all, you can pair this ensemble easily with neutral accessories. Try a chunky black cocktail ring or be daring with black nail polish. Whatever you choose, you're sure to make waves the next time you hit the town.
