In the past, most people have associated smokey eyes with black or charcoal gray eyeshadows. But so many makeup artists aren’t using just black anymore. I’ve seen some gorgeous eyes done with deep plums, chocolate browns, dark emerald greens, even pink and navy blues and they all still sport the same smoldering allure.
I really love the look, but I usually reserve it for evening or fancy occasions because it can be too strong for the daytime. So, if you’re looking to switch it up a bit and sport a chic and modern alternative to the smokey eye, I say, try it!
Here are a few fun smokey eye looks I’ve recently spotted on Pinterest:
- Pink smokey eyes
- Gray and purple smokey eyes
- Metallic silver smokey eyes
