Smoldering, defined eyes can be tricky, but Sarah Jessica Parker
got it just right at the 2012 New York City Ballet Fall Gala. To get her perfectly rimmed lashes, makeup artist Leslie Lopez suggests starting with a soft, creamy black pencil and lining your eye’s waterline. Then, tug on the top lid and pull your eyeliner from the inside to the outside corner of your lashline. Take an angled brush and lightly smudge. For a subtle smoky fade, Lopez suggests blending a shimmery navy and black shadow on the lid and then highlighting with a silver metallic shade over the middle to get eyes to pop. Curl lashes for 20 seconds and then finish the look off with two coats of mascara.
