This season's dark eye has a silver lining. "The smokiness is aggressive, but the silver gives it a softer touch," explains New York City makeup artist Nick Barose. "It's inspired by the Robert Palmer music video for 'Addicted to Love.' " Anyone can go metallic, but darker-skinned women should opt for pewter shades to avoid a frosty look.


Apply neutral shadow from lash line to crease and along brow bone, and black liner along lash lines. (1. Tina Earnshaw quad in Sorbonne, $24;

Sweep silver shadow over the lid with a sponge-tip applicator. Use a Q-tip to gently smudge liner into shadow. (2. Shiseido duo in iced moss, $25; Sephora)

Curl lashes, then apply two coats of mascara, holding the wand vertically to increase volume. (3. Max Factor Stretch & Separate in rich black, $6.50; drugstores)

To intensify the shine, add a pale shimmer cream along the brow bone and underneath the lower lashes. (4. Sephora All-over Color in cream-pink, $9; Sephora)
