With lashes that reach toward the sky and dark, sultry shadow, Kim Kardashian's deep brown eyes are truly a sight to behold. Her sexy style is often imitated, but hitting just the right balance of sensual decadence and wearable color isn't always easy. So what's the secret to Kim's perfect peepers?
A great smoky eye like Kim's begins with the right liner. Choose a dark color for maximum shock factor, but if you have lighter eyes, you don't have to go all the way to black. Brown, navy, grey and plum can all look gorgeous, too. Line the entire rim of your eye, both top and bottom and including the waterline, so that no pink skin is visible.
Next, smudge dark eyeshadow up to your browbone. Apply the darkest color by the lash line, then fade up to a more natural brown as you approach your brow. And don't shy away from shimmer - a great smoky eye has a hint of sparkle, too.
Finally, apply a few coats of mascara. Don't skimp here! If you've ever wanted to try fake lashes, this may be your chance. The more extravagant, the better.
Of course, all that makeup will have to come off at the end of the night. That's where Elemis FreshSkin Make-up Away Cleansing Wipes come in. No matter how done up you get for a night on the town, hit the pillow fresh-faced and natural with just a single swipe.
