Since we trust that you are all masters at this cosmetic classic, we think you should take on a few advanced versions. Makeup pro Emma Willis of Contour Fossa shows us how to upgrade the smoky eye.

All three of the looks below can be added to a classic smoky eye. Begin each of these tutorials by prepping the lid with eye primer. Then, using a flat shadow brush, take a black cream-based liner like Shu Uemura Painting Liner in Black and draw a thick line along the upper lash line. Smudge the line so it blends into the entire lid and slightly into the crease. Line the lower lash line and smudge slightly.
