Does anyone ever really tire of seeing how celebrities get red carpet ready? I know I don’t but I am also a makeup junkie as you all know. As in the case of Katherine Heigl seen here wearing her royal blue smoky eyes with such great confidence. Is this look too much? I think not. That is the beauty behind creating a gorgeous smoky eye, it doesn’t always have to be done in black. Blues, pastels, purples, bronze and earth tones all do the job quite nicely.

When you choose a brighter hue, consider a more subtle smoky eye as seen here on Katherine. Less is more and your peepers will think so too! Make sure to apply the color along the upper and lower lashline and blend into the crease using a sweeping motion with your brush.

INSIDER TRICK: When using loose shimmer shadows to create this look make sure to tap off your brush before applying the color. This will ensure that you don’t add too much and allow you to build the color.

For anyone wishing to go the extra beauty mile, you can add a few individual lashes on the ends of each eye and finish with two generous coats of rich black mascara.

You are red carpet ready baby!
