If you want a lighter alternative to the smoky eye try multi-dimensional shades of taupe shadow like Olivia Palermo at the Rochas show in Paris. Start with a pale shade of beige shimmer on your inner eye and then melt the color into a deeper brown toward your temple. Then smudge a soft black pencil liner on the top and bottom lids and swipe an illuminating highlighter on your undereye and upper cheekbone to finish off the look. The soft look pairs well with a neutral gloss and dewy cheeks but would also work with a deep burgundy lip stain for evening.
