See it's not a straightforward smoky eye, a section in the centre is softer, there's a flick at the outer edges and a little curl that snakes around the inner corners of each eye.

Using a black Rimmel crayon I had in my make-up bag and a whole load of cotton buds I set to work initially drawing the outline, next shading in and then finally tidying the edges.

Once my right eye was perfected I used that as a guide for my left. It took about 10 minutes to do both.
