Smoky Eye Eye Shadow Palettes

Smoky Eyes Have Never Been So Simple

With the help of these smoky eye shadow palettes, getting that sultry, come-and-get-me eye makeup look has never been easier. All you have to do is blend the lightest colour just under the brow bone, use the second lightest shade all over the lid (stop at the crease), add the medium dark shadow to the crease (remembering to blend well) and you can deepen the crease and line your eyes with the darkest shadow. See, it's a cinch! Below are three of my favourite smoky eye palettes for a smouldering eye.

Laura Mercier Eye Colour Quad Storm Cloud (£26, don't worry, they ship to the UK) was a limited-edition quad that came out last Summer, so if you like it, you'll need to act fast (it's about to be discontinued) that includes four powder shadows designed to create a classic grey smoky eye. You can use each of the shadows alone or blend them together.

Chanel Les Ombres 4 Smoky Eyes (£33) is a rich in pigment powder shadow quad that contains four frost, matte and satin colours. You can use the shadows either wet or dry, and either way they spread easily and create a profound impact.

For one last drugstore smoky eye quad that won't break the bank,

L'Oreal Wear Infinite Eyeshadow Quad In Smokey Eyes (£3.50) is an oldie but goodie product that won't break the bank. Colour is buildable and the shadows are silky soft. This one happens to be my favourite, but there are nine others available to suit any and all moods.

I also highly recommend the Body Shop ones - the colours are really easy to wear. I'd never managed to get a smoky eye before trying these.

That Laura Mercier one is gorgeous! I like that it is ever so slightly brown toned which would make it warmer and easier to wear.
