BEAUTY BAR: Smoky The Stare

The smoky eye is back and super trendy right now! I repeat, the smoky eye is back! Whether you’re hitting up your local tavern or going on a romantic dinner, the smoky eye seems to be everyone’s go-to night out look. For years the “smoky eye” has been a hit or miss when trying to rock it in the day time. Countless magazines called it a faux pas to be seen with such a dark look during the day, but now that is all changing!

Marie Claire has now deemed the new smoky eye, which consists of an array of shades besides the timeless black/silver, to be one of the hottest makeup trends at the moment. So when I saw this Fashionista rocking not only a killer outfit but also a bronze smoky eye, I just had to snap a few pics! Pulling off a smoky eye in the early hours of the day is not an easy task, but this Fashionista proves that you can rock a smoky eye at any time. Her smoky eyes and bright lipstick are a perfect pair when matched against her plain black top and add an element of fun to her casual look. The light nude/bronze colors she chose worked great against her light skin and made her eyes pop even more. This is a look you can easily rock to your 9:00 a.m. class!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To achieve this look you will need a vibrant pink or berry liner and lipstick, as well as nude or bronze eye shadow palette. Make sure to use the lighter shades around your eyebrow line and the lid of your eye and use the darker bronze shades for the crease. Keep the rest of your makeup light and minimal to allow the smoky eye to really pop.
