Reverse Smokey Eye

I'm sure you're familiar with the classic smokey eye -- but if you want to try something different, you'll love what I created below.  Give your classic smoky eye a twist with this reverse version focused on the lower lash line.  Here’s how to do it with bright bold shadows, in eight easy steps:
  1. Add a base to prolong the wear of your makeup across the entire lid.
  2. Apply a skin tone eye shadow like MAC Soft Brown to the lid and blend through your crease.
  3. Using E.L.F Studio Cream Eyeliner draw a line along the upper lash line and extend the liner outward to create a wing similar to how you create a cat eye.
  4. Line your inner waterline with MAC Kohl eyeliner.
  5. Using the same eyeliner smudge the liner with a pencil brush across your lower lash line.
  6. Apply MAC Electric Eel eyeshadow on top of the smudged liner and gently blend it with a fluffy brush.
  7. Apply MAC Stars N' Rockets eyeshadow below Electric Eel and blend it more.  Slightly blending it out towards the end of the winged liner.
  8. Finish off the look with mascara and lashes.
Looking for something not as adventurous? Try using neutral colors on the lower lash line for the same stunning effect.
