Navy Blue Smoky Eyes
Lea Michele’s makeup artist Melanie Inglessis let us in on the secret to the star's sultry but not stuffy smoky eyes at the Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld cocktail party during Paris Fashion Week: "Use an alternative color to black, which can be really heavy. Try dark blue, gray or brown which will lighten things up." She also advises using a cream shadow, which is easier to blend than powder formulas. For added drama, apply the pencil inside the waterlinetop and bottom. And keep the makeup current by layering color below the crease only. Any more starts to look unhinged.
