Going out this weekend? Whether or not you’ll be in costume, InStyle November cover star Halle Berry’s smoldering silver eye makes for the perfect accent to any ensemble. We love how the star’s version embodies all the classic elements of a sexy smoky eye, but gets an update with a touch of pewter. “To keep the feeling strong on Halle’s modern, yet romantic Dolce & Gabbana lace dress [which the actress wore to her Cloud Atlas premiere], I created an eye look with blended charcoals and shimmery silvers to complement the silver colors in the dress,” said her makeup artist, Kara Yoshimoto Bua, who used a combination of Revlon’s Eye Shadow Palette in Siren ($8 at revlon.com) and the Creme Gel Liner in Charcoal ($9 at revlon.com) to create the look. Ensure that your smoky eye lasts all night by using the cream liner all over your lids as an eye shadow base, then layer the powder eye shadows on top. The smooth base keeps shadow from sliding around, allowing you to spend less time touching up, and more time enjoying the party.
