Sultry, smoky eyes look good year round, but they don't necessarily feel the best in the sizzling summer heat. Melt Town, population you and your eyeliner. Our east coast editorial assistant Seija summed it up best when she said she was hesitant to pile on all that dark color in the heat for fear of looking like a certain reality star. We feel you, girl.
Just because the temperature outside is sweltering doesn't mean you have to retire your smoky gaze for the season. We called in makeup artist James Vincent to show us how to summerize our smoky eye, plus get his tips for avoiding an eye-makeup meltdown.
