The new softer smoky eye

Diorshow Fusion Mono in Millennium

The smoky eye is a classic. This season it gets a fresher, softer look with shimmery taupe and mink shadows. These soft, sophisticated shades flatter most eyes. 

Apply them lightly for daytime, and more intensely for the evening.  Line your eyes with brown, taupe, or black pencil, then contour them with a smoky wedge of taupe or mink shadow. Smudge the liner into the shadow for a subtler look. Finish with a few coats of black mascara. 

Below are a few of our favourite taupe and mink shadows from super shimmery to matte, and in-between.
