Who should do it: "People with monolids. Also, it depends on your personal preference on how smoky you want it. The closer to the lashline, the more natural it'll be; the further away, the more dramatic," says Babaian.
How to get it:
Step 1: Apply foundation to your lids.
Step 2: Use a warm brown eyeshadow at the base making sure it doesn't go beyond the mid-point of your eyelid, you want to have a lot of space beneath your browbone before the shadow starts.
Step 3: Apply the same shadow hue to your lower lashlines.
Step 4: Apply dark brown or black shadow along your lashlines over the previous shade you just applied -- don't extend it all the way out to your outer corners.
Step 5: Add black pencil liner to the waterline (inner rims).
Step 6: Add liner to both top and bottom lashlines smudge it out to finish.
Step 7: Curl lashes.
Step 8: Apply a significant amount of mascara.
Step 9: Apply highlighter on your inner corners and browbones to add a touch of sparkle.
Bonus tip: When lining your bottom lashlines, remember to smudge it out. Babaian warns, "wherever you put darkness is where your eye is going to follow. If you only put it in the lower rim, it makes the eye seem smaller, but if you [add liner to the lower lashline and] smudge it out then it brings those outer edges forward, so it makes the eye [look] larger."
