1. "Start by prepping the eyelids with an eye shadow primer (recommended: Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer) to help the shadow last all night. Fill in the brows with brow pencil, as thick brows are the best frames for the smoky eye."

2. "Dust a neutral crème colored shadow (recommended: Brule from MAC) over the entire lid. Then, using a medium shade shadow dust the outer corner of the eye up to the brow bone and blend."
