If you want to look super-sexy, there's nothing better than a seriously smoked-out eye like Olivia Wilde's. The key to making this look sultry--and not scary--is to keep everything soft and smudgy. Hard lines will look too harsh, so use a brush to blend out the eyeshadow and a Q-Tip to smudge the liner.
There's something both seductive and sweet about a winged eyeliner look like Taylor Swift's. The thick, dark liner demands attention, but the upward sweep adds a demure quality to the look. Liquid liner can be tricky, so use a light brown pencil eyeliner to draw a practice line first. Once you've got it perfectly positioned and in the desired shape, go over your practice line with the liquid liner.
You don't have to rim your eyes in a pound of liner to look hot--sometimes it's better to go for a more understated look like Minka Kelly. In fact, dark liner has a tendency to make eyes appear smaller, so if you're going for the wide-eyed look, be sure to only use liner on your top lashline. Pair that with a sweep of soft, dreamy shadow and lots of lashes for a romantic look that's sure to knock his socks off.
Want to show off your fun and flirty side? Try sporting a bright shadow like Ashley Benson. She paired her ber-thick lashes with a wash of golden-green shadow that made her unique dress pop. Bright, colorful shadows show that you are playful and that you've got a bit of a wild side.
If you like the sultriness of a smoky eye, but are afraid of using super-dark shades, try using earthy hues like Angelina Jolie. Warmer tones won't wash out your skin like a carbon black would, plus brown is much softer and subtler. It's a more grown-up, sophisticated way to smoke out your eyes.
Metallic silver eyeshadow like Rachel Weisz's packs a double-whammy of making your eyes look both dreamy and wide-open. You don't want to look like a frosted ice queen, so stay away from silvery-white shades and steer more towards pewter and grey-based silvers. Try using a cream shadow to get that gorgeous, molten metal effect. Rim your eyes in dark gray liner, add a few coats of mascara and you're good to go!
Sometimes all you really need to wow him are mile-long lashes. Take a cue from mascara master Kim Kardashian and amp up your look with a fringe that creates its own breeze. To get maximum thickness and length, concentrate on the root of your lashes--that's where the bulk of your mascara should be deposited. To add even more oomph, pop a few false lashes onto the outer corner of the eyes.
An elongated cat-eye like Ciara's is a look we've been seeing all over the place recently. It gives your eyes a very sultry, feline look, but in a more modern way than the traditional cat-eye. To do it, skip the liner and use your eyeshadow instead to create the winged effect. Use a brush to apply your shadow, extending it past the outer corner of your eye and gradually swooping upwards.
It may sound crazy, but purple eyeshadow is actually one of the most versatile, flattering shades a girl can wear--it's neither too cool, nor too warm, so it looks great on all skin tones. We love Kaley Cuoco's two-toned approach--she paired a sparkly lilac shadow on her lids with a glittery amethyst liner on her lower lashline.
The classic combo of shimmery shadow and dark liner is a no-fail stunner that he won't be able to look away from. To get Cobie Smulders smoldering stare, use a light shadow on your lids and a dark shadow in your creases, followed by a thick swipe of dark eyeliner for definition. Dust a light, frosty shadow on your lower lashline and the inner corner of the eye, then finish with mascara on top and bottom lashes. Voil! A gorgeous, glowing gaze that will lure him in.
