A Colorful Smoky Eye You Can Wear During The Day

The smoky eye is like the beauty equivalent of the LBD — classic, timeless, and appropriate for every situation. Well, not exactly. We can all agree that the sultry look best suits scenarios involving smoky rooms and so-good-it-hurts heels, and that societal norms suggest it stay there. Not if we have anything to say about it. You see, when it comes to defining our eyes for the day, we are always on the hunt for ways to appropriate the smoky eye without looking like we just pulled an all-nighter.

And, we found it.

This month, Maybelline shares how to use purple instead of your go-to grays for an eye-catching update that's just as apropos for your daytime summer concert as it is for your nighttime rager. And, since this look only uses one shade instead of three graduating hues, you can just pick your favorite purple stunner and blend it out — no other tips required.

Cop the look over here along with a few other daring daytime looks, and smolder on.
