Sweep a base coat of eye color over your whole eyelid, from just above the lashes up to the brow bone. Stick with a neutral shade that complements your skin tone, such as beige or cinnamon.
Select a bright glitter tone that will go over your eyelid. Hooded eyes can go with grays, pinks, coppers and plums for variations on the smoke look. You'll want the lightest color on your eyelid, right up to the eye crease. Coat one lid, then the other.
Apply a medium hue right along your hood to define your look. If you went with a light gray, work up to smoke; if you chose lilac, hit the hood with plum. Play along the same color line to work your way from wispy to smoky for a super hot eye look.
Blend the darker hue up toward your brow bone to draw attention away from the hood and expand the smoke look. Go as high as you want. Once you've shaded the hood with a dark color, work over the area with a paler shimmer shade that complements your skin tone. Golds, whites and browns all work here.
Line your top lid with a dark eyeliner such as black or brown. Glittery eyeliners work great to get your smoke on.
Smudge a smoke shadow on your lower lids for that classic sleepy hue that makes the smoky look.
Give your lashes a coat of dark mascara to complete your look.
