Smokey eyes are always a big hit, so leave it up to Hollywood to take a popular look and improve upon it. Recently we have been seeing several celebrities showcasing the new and upgraded version of the smokey eye. Gwyneth Paltrow showed off this drop-dead gorgeous look at the debut of Estee Lauder's Sensuous in New York. Now you can copy it for yourself.
Gwyneth's Smokey Eyes
•Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Mocha Cup
Pure Color Eyeshadow comes in a very wide variety of shades to suit all of your needs. The formula is very silky and rich, yet is long-wearing without creasing on your eyes. The mini compact is cute, yet functional, with an applicator and mirror. Gwyneth was wearing Mocha Cup, which is a light and fairly neutral gray tone. This was a perfect match with the rest of her eye makeup, since the attention for the new smoky eye should be on the liner and the lashes.
•Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in Black(Compare Prices)
This mascara gives you big bold lashes without leaving them feeling heavy. Their Bold Volume Formula will work on even the skimpiest lashes by lifting and plumping each lash. The precision wand wraps each lash while delivering lift and curl at the same time. This mascara would be perfect for those that have lashes that point downward. Gwyneth used this mascara to add just the perfect amount of definition to her lashes without taking away from the rest of her eye makeup.
•Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in Black(Compare Prices)
This wonderful little liquid eyeliner lasts a whopping 15-hours without smudging. Even though it has lasting power, it is still easy to remove with your favorite eye makeup remover. The felt applicator tip allows you to get a perfect line each and every time. It is available in brown or black. Gwyneth wore black liner on her top and bottom lid. If you notice in the picture, she lined her entire eye with a bold yet crisp line. Gone are the days of smudging your liner and adding extra shadow around your eyes. To get this new bold yet smoky look, there is no smudging allowed!
