Say hello to silver metallic eye makeup. The best part of icy metallic makeup is that it works great with every skin tone! Jessica Biel‘s silvery hue all around her eyes gives her a sassy boost!

CLASSIC SMOKEY EYES
The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. Achieve Julianne Moore‘s sophisticated and sexy look by using a black eye pencil on the upper lashes. Smudge it out and apply a matte eye shadow below the lower lashes and eyelids. Be sure to blend it out! “Blur the edges—that gives you that really smoky, diffused look. It starts with the black and just fades into a slate color,” says Murphy. Finish off the look with tons of black mascara.
Fresh face flushed with rosy tinted cheeks will give you an innocent yet romantic look.
