Celebrity hair and makeup artist, Sherri Jessee, shares her secrets to creating the perfect smokey eye for your next event!

The Steps!

1.  Tweeze any stray browns and then perfect the shape. Use an angled brush for precise application and "Soft Smoke" Matte Brown Shadow. For long lasting wear, you may also try Brow Balm in “Brunette.”

2.  Apply a pale shadow on the entire lid. “White Gold” is a perfect color to use as it gives a soft, golden sheen and this color can double as a facial highlighter.

3. To create a base for the smokey eye, apply Luxe Creme Liner in "Gold Moss" to the base of the lid close to the lashes.

8. Apply a generous coating of Mary Kay Lash Love mascara to upper and lower lashes. Allow the first coat to dry and apply a second coat. For even more dramatic lashes, add on a strip of human hair lashes in “Siren” from House of Lashes.
