The Smoky Eye That Looks Good On EVERYONE

comments

What — you didn't think that once we got our hands on British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, we were going to let her get away with just one video? And, there was definitely no way we were going to spend an afternoon with her and not have her teach us her patented "feline flick," the one made iconic by a certain Ms. Kate Moss.

Like last week's red lip tutorial, we wanted to give Tilbury the chance to put her signature cool-girl spin on a classic makeup staple. And, what's more classic than the traditional smoky eye?

In this tutorial, Tilbury covers everything from exactly how to get that Moss-ian flick, to how to create a "push-up bra" effect on your lashes. The result is a gorgeous, hazy gaze in a shade that flatters literally every skin tone and makes eyes of all colors sparkle. Plus, she gives a sneak peek at her much anticipated beauty line (that dewy gorgeous skin is courtesy of her already-cult-classic-in-the-U.K. Magic Cream) which doesn't hit counters until next fall.

Watch the video to learn Tilbury's smoky eye secrets and get ready to give your usual eyeshadow style a total overhaul.
