Dramatic Smoky Eyes

Halle Berry’s Holiday Smoky Eyes


This mom-to-be plays up her natural glow with shimmering metallic shadow, flawless skin and pale pink gloss. To get this look make-up artist Beth Bender says start with the eyes first and then move on to the face and lips.

For a smoky eye try a dark silver shimmer and apply to the entire eyelid making sure to blend up into crease. Try Bellatrix Eye Dust, $16 at bethbenderbeauty. For longer lasting color apply with a damp brush. Get a perfect smoky eye using the Get in Line Eyeliner Kit. Hold the stencil in place over the eye and fill in with color. Use the bottom eyeliner stencil for lining the bottom eye. Smudge with your brush for a softer line as seen here on Halle.

For an even more dramatic eye add a little gel liner in Onyx right along the lash line making the line slightly thicker at the ends. Finish with two coats of mascara. Try Here To Stay Mascara, $19.50 at Prescriptives.com. It lifts, separates, and defines for lashes that are gorgeous!

Keep the face sheer. I like using a tinted moisturizer because it gives you coverage without leaving your skin feeling heavy. Apply with a brush for very sheer coverage and a sponge if you prefer more. Try Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face Tinted Moisturizer, $42 at Lauramercier.com.

Finish with a lip gloss in either a pink beige or a pale pink. Try Paris is Burning Liquid Lip Color, or Ooh Baby Liquid Lip Color both $16 and available at beth bender beauty.
