Earlier this week, I showed you how to rock blue, one of the hottest colors this Spring, with a dot of eyeliner under the eye. But if you like a bit more drama, nothing beats a dramatic smoky eye like the Arabian-inspired look at Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2013 show.

Tips On Rocking The Look
When working with dark shadows, always start with your eye makeup before you apply foundation and concealer. Use less color than you think you need and build up the intensity gradually – it is easier to go back and add more than having to tone it down. Finish with understated cheeks and lips.

For a slightly more colorful take on the look, try this look instead!
