A smoky eye is one of the fastest ways to add glamor to your appearance, but some women shy away from the sultry look because of its inherent intensity. However, ladies who’d like a smoldering stare without too much drama can opt for a lightly smoked eye.
According to Glamour.com, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian recently rocked two different takes on the smoky eye at the Beach Bunny Swimwear runway show in Miami, Florida. Kourtney chose the more subtle look, opting for taupe and gray shadows and mile-long fake lashes.
Kim amped up the drama a bit with the addition of black liner, but still kept the overall look soft by using muted shadows, like her sister. She, too, donned faux lashes.
Creating a soft, smoky eye isn’t too difficult, especially using Youngblood products. The brand offers Crushed Mineral Eyeshadows, which are soft and blendable, perfect for crafting a sultry yet subtle look. Select shades like Haze, a matte taupe, and Cashmere, a dark gray shimmer, using the darker color along the lash line and the lighter tone on the lids.
To bring a bit of drama to your stare, apply eyeliner to the outer corners of your eyes and make sure your lashes are long. Use Intense Color Eye Pencil, a long-lasting formula which is still soft enough to smudge, and finish with a coat of Mineral Lengthening Mascara.
