The A-list set has been championing soft smoky eyes in recent weeks. Forget heavy charcoal, the modern and new season-appropriate way to wear the look is to go softly softly.
Leigh Lezark, Olivia Palermo, Mila Kunis and Elizabeth Olsen all chose soft washes of dove grey, mink and taupe - perfect alternatives to black and flattering on everyone; to get the same effect look to Burberry’s Sheer Eyeshadows, £22.50 each. Worthy of note - smoky eyes don’t just have to be grey or brown, we spotted Kristen Stewart and Freida Pinto with blue smoky eyes which complimented their brown eyes, while Megan Fox went for a bronzy rose–toned eyeshadow to match her dress.
If you like your smoky eyes a bit heavier, take a leaf out of newcomer Jennifer Lawrence’s beauty book and go heavy with the kohl pencil but blend out with a brown eyeshadow to give a really soft finish.
