WATCH: Lois giving you tips on how to create a smokey eye look without breaking the bank! “Have fun with it and create similar looks!!” says Lois.

1. Firstly moisture your face and allow it to soak in, then apply a thin layer of foundation onto your face including eye lids- this will help the eye shadow stick and stay on longer

2. Apply a line of eyeliner to the bottom of your eyes to create definition.

3. Next apply the grey shadow to your eyelids- apply as much as you want.
