How To Do Smoky Eye Makeup Without A Mirror


At Alexander Wang’s goth glam show, models were transformed into an “army of darkness” complete with studded platform creepers and wild, slicked hair. The makeup was pure rock-and-roll—think KISS and the Cure—and, without using mascara or eyeliner, makeup artist Diane Kendal achieved a party-ready smoky eye.

Get in the spirit of hard rock icons and throw away the rules (and tools!) because these rebellious eyes can be recreated with your fingers. Use a gray shadow stick that’s easy to smudge and focus the pigment towards the lash line to give your eyes more definition. A stick tends to be more sheer making it nearly foolproof. If you want extra shine and color, sweep a bit of charcoal-hued cream shadow onto the lids with your finger for added drama. Finish with a touch of brow gel and you’re ready to take on the night.
