Ah, the smoky eye. Is there any makeup look so admired, so sultry, yet so intimidating to a beauty newbie? But, while a multi-tonal eye may look complex, the steps are actually simple.

Consider this tutorial a crash course in mastering this dramatic beauty look once and for all. With a bit of practice, you’ll have a simple smoky eye that’ll have your friends convinced you’re a bonafide makeup artist. (We won’t tell on you if you don’t tell on us.)
