One look that’s taking the makeup world by storm is the smoky smudged eye. While it may seem unusual to smear your makeup once you’ve spent several minutes applying it, this hot new trend has been turning heads at runway events for months. Not sure where to begin? Use the following steps to achieve this model-worthy look!

1. Apply dark eyeshadow along your bottom lids
StyleCaster recommends beginning with an angled brush and deep, dramatic eyeshadow on the outer corners of your bottom lids. For a more impactful appearance, apply it along the entire lid line rather than sticking to only the corners.

2. Use your fingers to begin smudging
Once the eyeshadow is in place, use your finger to smudge it inward toward the inner corners of your peepers. Smear it to your heart’s desire – it’s impossible to go overboard with this makeup tactic when the objective is to be messy!

3. Pump it up with mascara
Of course, no smoky eye look would be complete without long, voluptuous lashes. Use the most volume-infusing mascara you have to doll up your eyelashes and ensure they complement your overall appearance.

My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
