When you think of a sultry smoky eye, the words radiant and glitter probably don't come to mind. But last night at an Almay concert to celebrate the Rainforest Fund's 21st birthday, Kate Hudson (the brand's new spokeswoman) pulled it off beautifully.

Start off by applying a primer on the lids to both brighten the eyes and keep shadow from wandering. Next, sweep on a medium-toned lavender shadow on the crease and a deep brown shade on the lids. Makeup artist Leslie Lopez used Almay Shadow Trio in For Browns ($6). To make the eyes pop even more, line the tops and bottoms with a pearly toned topaz eyeliner. Lopez used Liner in Brown Topaz ($7) on Kate. Finish the look with a dab of glitter on the eyelid and some thickening mascara.
