I used a black pencil to tight-line my upper lid and rim my lower lid too, again meeting at the inside corner of my eye. The look is more polished and easier to pull off when the lines meet and there are no 'loose ends.'

Additional tips:

- Use a waterproof mascara, this isn't the time for your mascara to run making a total mess of it all.

- If you tend to have dark circles, make sure you're using enough concealer (mix with a little eye cream) so they don't appear darker next to the added color of the shadows. If you're really dark around your eyes, nix a purple hue and go for a grey instead so it doesn't amplify them.

- Set the under eye area with a little powder just to lock it all in and you are ready to go!

That looks great. It's not too drastic which I like. Most celebs have their makeup artists pile it on!

Even though you're suppost to wear this out at night, I'd use it for day, with a nude lip and brown eyeshadows instead of gray

LOve it! It's not too dramatic, perfect for "real" life.
