Finishing the makeup are lashings of mascara and a touch of blush that accentuates the cheeks to underline the features!

Grammys 2013 Makeup: Carrie Underwood’s Smokey Eyes
What gives this particular Grammys 2013 makeup look a bit of an edgy, mysterious yet sexy allure is the harsh dark pigmentation used for the eyelids contrasting against the neutral pigments used to enhance the rest of the features. Carrie Underwood is known for her feminine, seductive and good taste in makeup, so taking cue from her smokey eye makeup can only bring benefits. Start by concealing imperfections and applying a primer on your lids over which you’ll gently start to build up a black matte eyeshadow. Blend the edges to create a fading effect and add a bit of brown as you work your way along the lower lashes using the help of an angled brush dipped in pigment.
Intensify the look by smudging a black eyeliner pencil on the waterline and coating both upper and lower lashes with a lengthening and volumizing black mascara. Now, to avoid looking grungy or gothic, use a pale nude-pink lip color and blush, shades that will tone down the harshness of the eye makeup and make it look sexy and seductive just like Carrie’s Grammys 2013 makeup look!
