Celebrity Beauty-Smoky Eyes For Summer

beth bender beauty style watch: get the look

Sophia's smoky eyes

Celebrity makeup artist beth bender of beth bender beauty, Los Angeles calls Sophia's smoky eyes a "more modern approach for summer. Still extremely sexy but created with metallic shadows". "It's a fresh change from the heavier eye that we saw throughout most of the fall and winter" says bender.

To get the look beth suggests trying a palette in bronze and gold tones. The newest palettes for spring and summer like SGB are perfect for creating a gorgeous summer smoky eye. Contour the crease of eye with the darkest bronze shade and blend with the two lighter shades for the perfect application. Not sure about the smoky eyes, no worries each kit comes with a set of stencils that do the work for you. So easy to use, you'll be a pro in no time.

Remember to blend the colors especially in the crease. For some extra pow, line under the eyes using the deep bronze shimmer and smudge with your fingers or brush for a sexy, sultry look. If you're a gal that likes to line her eyes with a contrasting color use a gel eyeliner in either dark brown or rich black and line along your lashes as close to the lash line as possible. Before it dries smudge slightly with a Q-tip to soften the line. Try Onyx or Cocoa Stay Put Gel Liner.

To finish the look add two coats of Dior Show Mascara in Black and keep the lips sheer with a touch of color in Firefly, a sheer mauve-nude.
