Gone are the days of just using one eyeshadow colour, it’s now all about the blend! Us HQ gals love creating different looks and one of our favourites is the classic smokey eye. Perfect for parties as well as day to day, you can change the intensity to suit the occasion. Of course, it’s one of those looks that when done wrong, you can end up channelling your inner panda rather than your inner diva, so it’s important to get it right! To make sure you do, we’ve provided our fool proof guide to the smokey eye!
How to Create a Smokey Eye Look
