Putting on eyeliner

Step 1

"Yes, it's dramatic, but a smoky eye is actually a very soft look," says makeup artist Mally Roncal, whose clients have included Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce. "There are no harsh lines -- just a perfectly blended halo of color."

Trace a black eyeliner pencil along your upper and lower lash lines, as close to the lashes as possible. Make the line thicker on the top and thinner on the bottom, advises Roncal, but don't worry about getting it perfectly even. If you have almond-shaped or large eyes, also line the inner rims to amp up the intensity.
