Tip 1: Ditch The Black
Ditch black liner and dark, smoky shadows in favor of lighter, summer-friendly hues that are still evening relevant—think chocolate brown, shimmering bronze, deep navy or olive-colored eyeliner.
Tip 2: Find The Best Hue For You
Pick a palette that will complement your eye color. Utilize both darker and lighter shadows from your compact to create depth and dramatic contrast.
Tip 3: Make It Messy
Once you've applied eyeshadow and liner, smudge it up! Blend bottom liner under and around your lash line with darker shadow shades to complete a sultry, Debbie-inspired look
Tip 4: Go Bold Or Go Home
Accentuate your smoky eye with a bold, structured brow. This can be achieved with an eyebrow defining pencil.
Tip 5: Complete The Look
Top off the look with volumizing mascara and a summery lipstick shade.
