12 YouTubers Show How to Rock a Stunning Fall-Inspired Smoky Eye
If there's one thing to be said about a smoky eye, it's that it's an incredibly versatile look. The combination of liner and shadow used in this dramatic technique allows for seemingly infinite possibilities of combinations and styles.
Though any season is acceptable for a smoky eye, the smoldering look is one of our favorites for Fall. Using shadows in colors reminiscent of autumn — olive green, plum, orange, brown, red — can create your best Fall face yet!
To help you get in the mood for boots, sweaters, and pumpkin spice lattes, we've rounded up 12 YouTube tutorials that explain how to nail every version of an Autumn-inspired smoky eye.
