June Ambrose rocked a glamorous smoky eye at the premiere of her new VH1 reality TV show “Styled By June” last week. This celebrity stylist and fashionista who is known for her eclectic showstopping style is beginning to turn heads with her great beauty looks. In true June style, she changed up the traditional sultry look to make it fun and edgy. The hints of silver shimmer gave a personal flare to this classic look and she still looked elegant and red carpet ready.

Here are a few things you should keep in mind before you try out your shimmery smoky eye.

1. Always use a primer on your eyelid base before applying eyeshadow. You want this look to last all night long and with a primer there is no slipping, sliding or fudging around. We recommend LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Shadow Primer ($12, loraccosmetics.com).

2. Want to add more “boom-kick” to your shimmering smoky eye? Here’s a secret — buy loose glitter.  You can build the shimmer on top of a base shadow to intensify your glam.  

3. A smoky eye doesn’t always have to be black. Have fun and try out different shades of color. You can create a smoky eye with different hues of purple, blue or even green.
