Now Trending: The Smoky Eye Gets a Makeover

The Smoky Eye Gets a Makeover(Source: PacificCoastNews.com) We're used to seeing the smoky eye as follows: big, bold and dark. But lately we've noticed the sexy stare has been getting an upgrade. It still has the standard kohl rim and heavy gray touch, but now the Friday-night fave is taking a smudgier turn.

Instead of reserving the mysterious color to just the eye lid, a lot of stars are adding a purposeful smudge of smoke across the whole lid for an edgy second-day look. This slept-in smudge definitely gives off a punk vibe with a "messy is sexy" feel, but it also raises the question, "Did she mean to do that?" Take a look at a few of the famous faces we've spotted rocking the second-day stare.

Jaime King went for ultimate Goth factor with thick raven liner and a subtle smudge of gray in the corner.
