Joey Maalouf Gives Us His Smoky Eye Secrets

We all obviously love the smoldering effects of a proper smoky eye. The vibe is sexy and high fashion, however getting it right can be a difficult maneuver. We asked Rachel Zoe’s dear friend and beauty expert Joey Maalouf to give us a tutorial. Executive Assistant Mel Chalian took the plunge and we documented each step of how to get a smoky eye you can wear all day (even at work!). Joey’s approach was to invert the smokiness with no major color on the top lid and most of the shadow under the eyes (which is counter-intuitive, but totally genius). This strategy is made for those of us who worry about precision, but want to dabble with the look. Thanks to Joey, tomorrow is looking far more glamorous than originally planned!
