6 Celeb Smoky Eye Looks You Can Copy

Ready, set, smoulder


When it comes to making up for a big night out or a major event, nothing beats a good ol’ smoky eye.

The classic look is a tried-and-true solution to adding megawatts of glamour to your mug - precisely why it’s such a favourite with celebs on the red carpet.

It’s not the easiest to achieve, however. Use the wrong colours and you could end up looking like you’re heading for the getai stage instead of a VIP event.

So how to get it right? You’ll need an eyeshadow palette in gradation tones.

Whether you prefer to smoulder in conventional blacks and greys or want to be more adventurous in hues of blue and red tones, we’ve got the perfect palette recommendations for you here. Click through the gallery above to find the one that suits you best.
