Winter, spring, summer or fall, smoky eyes are always in, and they give a dramatic kick to any evening look. But if donning attention-grabbing and smoldering eyes has you wondering what to do with the rest of your face, just remember keep it simple with a set of nude lips and subtley contoured cheeks. As with most looks, if the eyes have the drama, keep the lips more understated, and vice versa.
