A wispy smoky eye?

Is that even possible? We tend to associate the classic technique with drama or even a more nighttime-appropriate look. For BCBG's fall 2016 collection, however, makeup artist Val Garland created a romantic version made for fresh-faced girls everywhere.

Luckily for you, we went backstage at New York Fashion Week to get the look. Beyond the natural-looking, dewy skin (created with Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection Skin Perfector Foundation and set with loose powder), this look was all about the eyes. 

After you've created your base, apply a metallic sheen shadow to the eyes to give it that ever-so-slight pop. To get the wispy lids, apply Jay Manuel Beauty Filter Finish Collection Skin Face Lift mixed together with Jay Manuel Beauty The Ultimate Lip Gloss in Wet. Then using a brush, finish the eyes off with a cream liner.

Define the brows, add a neutral lip—and voilà. It's that easy.
