Here is a breakdown of one of Kim Kardashian Sexy Smokey Eyes.
Balance those brows
Use brow pencil to fill in eyebrows as needed. Apply it with tiny hair-like strokes, and after, blend lightly using a brow brush
Even-out the lid
Sweep a shimmery, nude powder eyeshadow from lashline to browbone with an eyeshadow brush. Kardashian's wearing NYX Single Eyeshadow in Ultimatum, $5.50.
Dust Giella B-dazzle loose mineral eyeshadow, $27, a shimmery nude-beige, on the inner corners of your eyes. "It opens and separates the eyes," Dedivanovic says.
Add depth at the crease
Using an eyeshadow brush, sweep black, pearlized eyeshadow along the entire crease of each upper lid. Then, blend the edges to soften them, using another, clean brush. "Think of this as adding the 'smoke,'" Dedivanovic says. He uses MAC Cinderfella Mineralize Eyeshadow, $36, on Kardashian, a limited edition shade. Can't find it at your MAC counter? A close substitution: MAC's Black Tied.
Next, apply more of the same shadow to the outer corners of the upper lids, as well as to the crease (again) and blend out and up.
Now line the lower lids with the same black shadow. Concentrate color at the outer corners a la Kardashian's photo. "Use a liner brush for precision," Dedivanovic says.
Line the upper lids with a dark black pencil. Start with a thin line that gradually thickens toward the outer corners. Smudge it into the lashes as well for more intensity.
With the same pencil, line the inside rims of your upper and lower lids, all the way around, inner corners included.
Time for fake lashes
Apply a few individual fake lashes to the upper, outer lids. Use a pair of pointy tweezers and pick each lash up by the tip, then dip the nub into lash glue, and apply the nub right at the lash root. Allow glue to dry. Try MAC 32 lash, $13, and MAC Adhesive, $8.
Mascara all around
Apply two coats of black mascara to the upper and lower lashes. "This adds intensity and it helps seal the fake lashes to the real ones, so they blend in naturally," says Dedivanovic, who uses Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara in Excessive Black, $24.50 on Kardashian.
Brush a natural pink-ish blush onto the apples of your cheeks. Kardashian's wearing Nars Orgasm Blush, $25, Dedivanovic says.
Define with bronzer
Dust a sheer, matte-texture bronzer on your temples, cheeks and chin. Also brush the bronzer on to contour the hollows of your cheeks. (Remember, you're not tanning your face here. You're just adding a faint sunny-glow to these key spots. Doing so frames the face, and it'll look more defined, especially in photos.)
Finish with some pretty, shimmery pink gloss (shown here, Smashbox Heartbreaker Roller Gloss in Pink Sugar, $21) and you're all set. Now don't just go to your event, own it, Kardashian-style.
