In celebration of Maybelline’s official sponsorship of the Vodafone NZ Music Awards, taking place on November 16th, here are some tips for recreating your own red carpet-ready smokey eyes at home.

Smokey Eyes

A rock-chic smoky eye is the perfect look for the VNZMA’s. We’re feeling a little dark and daring this year and having a play with heavy metal colours that deliver a rock-n-roll edge. Here are the tips for achieving a smoky eye look using Maybelline products.

1. Rock Nudes Palette

Using the two black eyeshadows on the far right of the Maybelline New York Rock the Nudes Palette (RRP$29.99). Start sculpting your smoky eye from the outer corners of your lids and then blend the colour inwards. This is the best way to create that sultry, gradual fade that’s typical of conventional smoky eye styles. Don’t forget to blend the colour into your lash line to emphasize the drama.

2. Colossal Go Extreme Leather Black Mascara

Every rock chick knows leather is the way to go, so next apply lashings of Maybelline New York Colossal Go Extreme Leather Black Mascara (RRP$24.99).

3. Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour

Keep your lip simple to highlight the dramatic eye. Finish the look with a swipe of Maybelline New York Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Colour (RRP$19.99) in Nude Thrill.
