To create the classic smoky eye seen on Eva Green at the BIFA awards, first of all don’t panic! Think of it as two lines -one close to the upper lash line and winged out a bit and a line on the bottom lash line. Once you have your two lines smudge and smoke them out and you have a great base for a smoky eye. The blacker and deeper the pigment of your pencil the better. I love MAC’s Smolder eye liner, which was also used on Eva, as it’s blacker than a winter’s London afternoon at 4pm and on my dark skin any other liner looks a bit grey and anaemic. If you want to get fancy and more dramatic like Eva’s look, try working MAC’s Scene and Carbon eyeshadows into your lids. I also like to go for a smoky molten bronze eye, metallic purple eye or navy to mix it up a bit. Keep lips fleshy and nude for a sultry look.
