Smoking Hot, Smoking Easy

Want to channel Sofia, Elizabeth and Brigette for your night on the town? Its easy as 1, 2, 3. I think the biggest misconception about a smokey eye is that you have to be a pro to get it right. Anyone can do this, watch this video for the breakdown.

For some extra inspiration, check out our round up of iconic smokey eyes.

  1. Love, love, love the tips – but…please note the model is wearing false eyelashes. Mascara alone will not provide the full look.

    Thanks!

    One of Bobbi’s favorite tips for full and lush lashes is to coat your fringe with two different mascaras. Try using one for thickening plus volume and the other for lengthening.

    Pop your hazel eyes with Bobbi’s Heather or Slate Eye Shadow. You’ll love how both shades can be worn softly or smoke out your eyes simply by adding a bit more color. View here: http://bit.ly/BBEyeShadow.

  4. Love this tip on smokey eyes! Can you suggest shade(s) for Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick for dark brown, almost black eyes? I want my eyes pop-out like the model’s blue eyes – looking so striking.

  7. The little videos are good, but lack some details that would be helpful to include. BB has had several iterations of the smoky eye look (I wish I had known how to do the techni For example, I got a lesson in creating the smoky eye look at Nordstrom from Maria, a BB makeup artist from NYC

  8. BB has had several iterations of the smoky eye look. It is confusing when another neat, new way to do the smoky eye comes out — other than convenience, is one method preferable for me, is there something I should add or eliminate from doing the smoky eye look because of my age? For example, I recently had a lesson from Maria, a BB makeup artist who advised me not to line my lower lid or to put mascara on my lower lashes — I assume she said that so that an onlooker’s eye is drawn upward away from my sagging, wrinkled skin (your skin care products are great, but they do not stop the aging process). I use both powder & cream shadows, depending on the event & how long I will have to wear the makeup. I bought the smoky eye liners…haven’t used them for the smoky eye look.

    I understand that you might prefer that makeup artists answer our questions, so that they can suggest products we may not own (i.e., to sell more makeup), but a little more guidance about the smoky eye look would be helpful. I have the impression that the smoky eye look necessitates relatively dark eye shadow colors…I see the lighter colors as “regular” eye makeup. I wonder how many people don’t know that one should use much lighter blush & lipstick than usual with the smoky eye look, so you don’t look “cheap” or overly made up.

  9. This is a repeat question…..which sadly went unanswered…when you posted the grand opening of bobbi in india….I had asked for a recommendation for shades ideal for indian skin tone/to go with honey foundation shade. I.e. flaterring shadow , blush/bronzer and lip. Brunette/brown eyes…..as bobbi is very much loved by indian girls. Thank you!

  10. Just bought my first cream shadow and gel liner and I LOVE it. Oh my goodness. I have been a Bobbi Brown fan for a while now, but I just had not tried this until now. Yep; I’m a forever fan of these two items! Thank you! =)
