Tips to rocking smoky eye makeup

When searching for a quick and easy way to infuse your look with sex-appeal, the answer is simple - sport smoky eye makeup. This show-stopping application is both sultry and glamorous, but is known to be a bit tricky. Luckily, there are a few expert tips that can help you to create a flawless smoky eye.

While women often concentrate on the dark pigments needed to make their stare smolder, a light-colored shadow may be equally important when you're applying the smoky makeup.

"Using an eye brightener or highlighter helps balance out sexy but dark eye makeup," celebrity makeup artist Laura Gellar told More magazine. "Just dab the pearly cream in the inner corner of the eye and under the brow."

Additionally, experts urge you to pay attention to your arches as well.

"Nothing ages a face like made-up eyes topped off by nonexistent brows," makeup artist Johanna Schlip told the publication.

Use blinc Eyebrow Mousse to subtly enhance your arches. The lightweight formula makes brows appear naturally fuller and more defined, and is designed to last for hours.
