Bored with the typical smoky eye? While the usual browns and black shades can help create that vampy smokey eye, adding some richer colors like sizzling metallics and vibrant blues can add a twist to the popular look.

Ready for that changeup? Here’s how to achieve a smokey eye with these beauty bag essentials.

How To DIY A Smokey Eye For Fall

For Sizzling Shadow…Metallics can offer a trendy boost to any eye look, so try dusting the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow ($21) onto your lids for some lush sparkle. Similarly, the dazzling Manna Kadar Cosmetics Eyeshadow Stick In Spellbound ($24) or the mark. All Time Eye Hook Up Longwear Shadow In Tender Love ($10) can bring some much needed radiance to your eyes pronto.

For An Alluring Lid… The Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour In Elegance ($37) paints your eyes with come-hither colors that won’t smudge, crease, or fade. Also in the ‘no smudge club’ comes the Tyra Eyes In A Stick In Blold ($24), which gives you high-definition color without any smears. Love an intense yet wearable eye?
