A perfectly executed smoky eye is the stuff of legend, and this fresh look brings a classic well and truly into the 21st century. With a stripped-back complexion and understated lips, it’s all eyes on your gorgeous, dusky green lids.
We’ve recreated this look on different models, in order to show you how to create the same effect but for various skin tones, skin types and face shapes. We worked with makeup artists, Pauline Briscoe and Bryony Blake, to bring you this tutorial. Alongside your base essentials and tools, you can recreate this look with our customisable, sustainable Colour Palette.

"For brightness that’s even more luminous, don’t just stop with one initial coating of Illuma! Go one shade lighter and pat it into the skin with the large end of the Flat Detailing Brush."
STEP BY STEP GUIDE
To maintain evergreen, dewy coverage, apply and blend Beauty Booster using the Beauty Drop Sponge.
Take your first steps in the bright direction by dotting Illuma Light Concealer under your eyes to lift any darkness out of the shadows. Then, blend it out into your skin with the large end of the Flat Detailing Brush.
Finish off your flawless canvas by setting your base with Soft Focus. Lightly dust it across your face with the Powder Brush.
Shape and boost brows using the angled end of the 3in1 Eye Brush to fill in any gaps between the hairs using the infinitely defining Brow Boss.
Stay subtle with Eyes On You in Oatmeal, applying it to your brow bone and the inner corners of eyes with the smaller end of the Flat Detailing Brush.
Build up layers of Eyes On You in Maca in your eyelid crease, using the fluffy end of the Eye Shadow Brush.
Colour eyes khaki as you pat Eyes On You in Nebula into your eyelids with the flat end of the 3in1 Eye Brush. Bring it onto your lower lash line too, gently blending together at the outer corner.
Glide Silk Gel Liner in Ebony across your waterline and upper lash line before smudging with the pointed end of your Eye Shadow Brush to create a subtle, smoky wing. Take your Nebula shadow onto the angled end of the 3in1 Eye Brush, and go over the liner on both your lower and upper lash lines.
Then, let eyelashes soar with the Lash Extension Kit in Black, applying the Fixing Gel Mascara before focusing the Extension Fibres on your upper lashes. Finish with a final coating of mascara.
Enrich the apples of your cheeks and high points of your cheekbones with pink-toned Way To Glow, applied with the pointed end of the Precision Face Brush.
Then, create a warm goddess glow with Jet Set, using the Powder Brush to buff it into your hairline, cheeks, the bridge of your nose, your chin, jaw and neck. This goddess look yearns for an understated lip, so crown it all with Lip Glaze in Coral Crush to give your pout a naturally fuller appearance and a gentle sheen.
