The smoky eyes look is always in fashion, and it looks particularly fabulous at this time of year with the start of the festive party season.  With New CID we are going to show you a step by step guide to creating the perfect smoky eyes that will make you the envy of your friends!

Step 1.

To create dramatic smoky eyes, begin with the i – smoulder pencil in Charcoal. Use the pencil end inside the lower lash to draw a subtle line and blink hard a few times. Repeat this process to build the colour up inside the eye. Now sketch along the top lash line. This doesn’t need to be really neat at this point. Using your finger (or an eyeshadow brush) blend the eyeliner up over the moving part of the eyelid.

Step 2.

Using the eyeshadow end of i – smoulder apply the cream eyeshadow over the top of the blended eyeliner and all over the moving part of the eyelid.

Step 3.

For a more dramatic look use i – shadow in Laguna. With an eyeshadow brush apply the darkest colour to the outside corner of the eye and blend inwards through the socket line. Now apply a little of the same colour under the lower lashes. Use the eyeshadow blending brush for a smooth finish.

Step 4.

Now apply plenty of mascara. For additional impact apply some false eye lashes. Smoky eyes can be a very striking look.  It works well to use a natural toned lip colour such as i-pout in Nudity or i-define in Rosie to maintain the balanced look.
