She's Got The Look!

The smoky eye is a beauty classic but we love this modern twist that MAC Senior Make-up Artist Lynsey Alexander created using bright cobalt blue. "If you have fun with your make-up and try a vibrant colour like cobalt blue, bright purple or a metallic brown you can really change your eye colour and bring out your best features," says Lynsey. We love it because it's young, fresh and fun. We dare you to give it a go! We already did!
Step 1
LINE AND DEFINE: Line the whole eye with MAC Eye Kohl pencil in Blooz and smudge all around the lashes to give a lovely dark denim stain. Keep inside the waterline. According to Lynsey "Using pencil instead of eye shadow gives an airbrushed effect and gives very soft edges, which looks more modern and lived-in."
Step 2
BOLD EYES: "To make this look modern use bold, block eye colours and stretch them almost up to the brow. On the lid I worked a mixture of MAC Fresh Water eye shadow and in the socket line MAC Plumage eye shadow. In the corners I used a touch of MAC Electric Eel – which gives a neon kick", says Lynsey.

Step 3
LASHES: Coat your top and bottom lashes with MAC Black Pro Lash Mascara and build it up. "If you keep your eye closed it gets top and bottom together and you don’t have to fiddle about – but wiggle the brush so that you coat them properly. Lighten the brows by combing them with a brow brush and using a little concealer.

Step 4
LIPS: You want to keep the lips clean and natural so that you don’t detract from the drama of the eye make-up. Linsey used MAC Lipstick in Blankety and then a clear gloss over the top.
