Many of us are constantly reaching for our neutral eyeshadow palettes throughout the year, so I think winter is the perfect time to experiment with darker makeup looks. (And what better way to begin than with a sultry, deep teal smokey eye?)

How To Recreate The Look:
Using the Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette, begin by sweeping on the shade Riff all over the lid. This colour is the perfect matte warm brown to use as a base for this look, as it’ll create some contrast in between the cool-toned shade we’ll be using.
Apply the shade Radio close to the upper lash line. Blend it upwards with a blending brush, making sure to create a gradient. This is what will give it that smokey illusion.
Next, apply the shade Good as Gone to the crease of the eye and blend the area until there are no harsh lines left over.
Using your ring finger, apply the shade Smog to the center of the eye to create more dimension.
Tap into the shade Radio once again and smoke it out onto the lower lash line for a mysterious, smouldering look.
Tightline and line the waterline with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. Follow that up with lots of Lancome’s Monsieur Big Mascara to give your lashes lots of volume.
Finish your look off with subtle skin and a subtle lip colour. Everyone’s perfect nude is different, so use the tones that suit your complexion best. I used Tarte’s Exposed for my blush and Nyx’s Natural Lip Liner with a couple dabs of Mac’s Velvet Teddy Lipstick on my lips to complete the look.
