How to Do a Smoky Eye Makeup and Neutral Lipstick Combination

Get Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's Sultry but Sweet Makeup

I absolutely adore Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's newly shorn hair, and last night she showed just how easily the right makeup can take her overall look from cute and gamine to bombshell. Her graphic black eyeliner and flesh-toned gloss are a nice update on the classic smoky eye/neutral lipstick combination, and it's easy to replicate. So to find out how to create the look at home, just keep reading.


Eyes:

  • Begin by waterlining your upper and lower rims with a waterproof black cream or gel liner like Boots Botanics Cream Eye Liner ($8).
  • Then, use the same liner to line your upper and lower lash lines, and use your pinkie or a shadow applicator tip to blend out the edges.
  • Finish with several coats of extra-dark carbon black mascara like Essence Black Mania Carbon Black Volume ($3) on your upper lashes and a single coat on your lower lashes

Lips:

  • Line your lips with a natural pink lip liner close to your lip tone.
  • Go over the liner with a lip gloss close to your face's skin tone for a neutral look.
