Instead of labouring with black eyeshadow and a blending brush to create a smoked out effect with your eye make-up, lay down some black eyeliner pencil or gel eyeliner and smudge it out with your fingertip. If you’re concerned about smudging or fading, set it with some complimentary eyeshadow or translucent powder. Voilà!
Time taken: 10 seconds. 100% smoky eye, 0% effort.
