Jessica is so naturally beautiful, you can put any kind of makeupon her and she will still look gorgeous!
4 Classic Beauty - Natalie Portman
I love Natalie Portman's face - it's flawless, so is her smoky eye look for the new Marie Claire UK cover!
3 Everyone's Favorite - Alicia Keys
This girl absolutely rocks the smoky eye look. The gray shadows complement her skin so beautifully. Good job, Alicia!
2 Incomparable Diva - Beyonce!
Beyonce looks absolutely stunning, this smoky eye look is so strong and at the same time so feminine - one of the best smoky eyes ever!
1 Young and Talented - Avril Lavigne!
I think we all agree that the 1st place should belong to the Queen of Smoky Eyes - Avril Lavigne - the girl who made smoky eye her famous signature look. Go Avril!
If you feel like getting that beautiful sophisticated **Smoky Eye Look **yourself, don't be shy, open those make up bags of yours, Ladies, and just follow this "7 Easy Steps to Smoky Eyes" Instruction.
shahzorbuledi @ Veronica GenderBender, I have very light blue eyes, almost gray, and I wear smokey looks all the time. There are a few good go-to looks, and the first one is that you should have in your makeup palette/collection a beige/neutral/sand color and a brownish light to dark cocoa color. (You can really use any two colors to make a smokey eye- you just have to remember that the darkest of the colors you use needs to be blended onto the outer corners of your eye from the lash line to the crease
Anthony Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics? Thank you so much!
Sierra Dear whomever can help: Iam a 13 year old girl trying to do my makeup to impress. I just can't seem to get the whole thin right. Iwould love to do the eyes you have in the picture of beyonce at the top of this page. It would really be a big lifesaver if you could give me some tips to help. I can't go to high school like this. Please Help!!
sara Typo error I mean Eva Mendes. Goodnite I'm sleepier than I thought! lol
sara I like Eva, Beyonce, Alicia and Keira knightly. I like Katherine but her look didnt look smokey to me but I'm sleepy! So it may just be my sleepy eyes. Natalie Portman looks good in anything! LOL I would've liked to see Eva Mendez! She looks great with a smoky eye! She should be added on this list or the next smoky eye list you do! Nice pics overall.
Sheila Hey Sara, Thanks for the lovely comment. I'll make sure we add Eva Mendez...oops Mendes the next time :D
sara I dont like Jessica Alba cause you cant really see her natural beauty anymore her nice dark hair. She looks like all her ethnicity and heritage have been taken away. Not just in this pic but ever since her show went off. Shes looking less and less like her self every year. And she looks real made up with all that cleavage cause with 34b you dont have that kinda cleavage. Im tired of her look!
Sheila Aww really Sara? I love Jessica Alba. She's always dressed impeccably even when she's just out with her daughter in the park. Oh well, to each their own I suppose.
Lindsey Hi, i am in year 10 at school and i am currently doing ICT DIDA. I was hoping that i could use your image of keira knightley with smoky eyes for my project. Thanks.
Sheila Hey Lindsey, You certainly can sweetie :) Thanks for asking!
drake Beyonce looks so much more prettier she's the most beautiful girl in the world! completely gorgeous ! : )
Sheila Hey drake, I completely agree that Beyonce is GORGEOUS. she just has everything right about her! But on the note of smoky eyes, i must agree with Olga that no one beats Avril Lavigne!
Veronica Hi Olga: You may find this letter a little "unusual" but my intent is very serious. I am a guy who's hobby is "Gender Illusion." Occassionally I dress like a woman to see how "passable" I can be. Unlike most "crossdressers" I am a straight man and I am actually quite masculine so its quite a challenge to make myself "pretty and feminine" looking. Still, as unusual as some may think this is, its a challenge that I enjoy. I have had some success and I often get compliments from women when i post my photos online. I have a make-up artist that i work with and she has been fabulous. I would now like to take things to the next level. I love the smokey eye look, but I don't seee anything here for blue eyes (like mine) that I like. Do you have any other suggestions for my look. I have some photos I'd be happy to share with you. Thanx! kisses & hugs xoxox Veronica P.S. Good for you for giving your permission to Lindsey to use Kierra's photo. She is a true beauty - what I wouldn't do to look like her! (occassionally) :>)
Tina Thank you for asking that, im a female with blue eyes. You know most photos i see the women dont have blue eyes, there all black, blond hair and brown eyes or brown, black hair and brown eyes... i have dark brown hair with blue eyes.
Sheila Hey RayJBady, thanks for those suggestions, i'm sure even the rest of us would benefit from your tips - specially the one about the brushes.
RayJBady @ Veronica GenderBender, I have very light blue eyes, almost gray, and I wear smokey looks all the time. There are a few good go-to looks, and the first one is that you should have in your makeup palette/collection a beige/neutral/sand color and a brownish light to dark cocoa color. (You can really use any two colors to make a smokey eye- you just have to remember that the darkest of the colors you use needs to be blended onto the outer corners of your eye from the lash line to the crease... it should make a v-shape. I have found personally that L'oreal HIP's Gunmetal and Magnetic shadow duos are my favorite.. they just need a primer first.) Anywho, with the sand/ brown deal, it's a classic look that isn't too harsh and is versatile.. goes with anything. Also, you can't go wrong with a dark gray, navy, or purple color.. it's all about experimentation. And don't forget to use brushes, not shadow applicators!! My makeup skills have gotten so much better now that I have brushes ^_^. Hope that helps ^_^ RayJBady
Lindsey Dear Olga Moore My name is lindsey and I am in year 10 at school and i am taking ICT DIDA. I was wandering if i could use your '#7 British Beauty – Keira Knightley' photo in my project because she looks amazing . The photo will not be shown outside my school Thank you Lindsey
Sheila Hi Lindsey, That's so sweet of you to ask. You can totally use the picture as long as you give us the credit :) Good luck with your project btw!
June No, actually, Avril looks like a raccoon -- the least sophisticated of all the women you have shown.
Sheila Hey reply AND June, we do appreciate all of your comments - whether that is in agreement with our opinions or not. I do hope you come back.
Oksana Keira Knightley looks amazing.
GlamourGirl Keira Knightley is the most elegant with those smokey eyes. I love her with that make up.
sherry how do you create the smoky affect
Ave And dear Jessica, As for the shape of your face, smoky eye does not depend on it at all - which is good news :) You can have a round face, a long face, a heart-shaped face - no matter what, smoky eyes will look drop-dead gorgeous on you!
Michelle Hi, I would like to find out what tipe of shadow tecture - cream or matte shadow, was use to create the make-up look on Charleze Theron's eyes. Thank you Michelle
lovepunkrock92 i where smoky eyes all the time i luv them there hott!
