The smoky eye is a tricky thing. Get it right and it can do all sorts of wonderful things for your make-up look (think enhanced eyes, super sex appeal and a way to incorporate colour without looking like a clown).

3.) Use a Crease Brush to gently blend the colour at your crease line. The natural hair bristle and tapered dome tip softly smokes out the powdered eyeliner, creating a smooth, subtle finish.
6.) Use the highlighter tip from the Onyx Mystikol and sweep the colour from the inner corner of your eyelid towards the middle of your eye.
7.) Take the same colour and blend up towards the brow bone and extend out under the brow. Next, layer and blend it along the bottom lash line over the top of the smudged Amethyst.
8.) To finish, make sure the whole eye is blended to perfection before applying lashings of black mascara.
