Hot New Look: Smoky Olive Eye Edition

News

By: namcgloster / January 14, 2011

It’s a common beauty misconception that smoky-eyed looks must be achieved by using dark, nearly black shades. On the contrary, ladies like Keri Hilson, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Yaya DaCosta show you that an equally sultry look can result from using an olive eyeshadow. Olive is a universally flattering shade that works great for most complexions and eye colors. Furthermore, its subtle enough to be worn from day to night, without you looking overly made up. Follow these steps to get your smoky olive eye:

1. Apply your green shadow of choice to the lid and under your lower lash line. Use a medium-sized fluffy brush to blend and gradually fade the product out towards the crease.

2. Highlight your brow bone with a cream shadow that has a hint of gold to it. The highlight should be subtle and faint.
