I saw this H.Stern ad in a magazine and couldn't stop staring. Besides the fact that Katie Holmes (Tom Cruise, who?) looks stunning, and is wearing blinged out jewelry, her eyes are captivating. Which got me thinking...I always do a black smokey eye but never a silver. Time to experiment!

I found this Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette from Dr. Hauschka ($44.95). Natural mineral ingredients mica and diatomaceous earth support the skin and bring vitality to the eye area. Bonus! Also, if you opt for a warm smokey eye, you can wear the Lily White on your lids and Earth Brown in the creases. Otherwise, wear the Ice Blue on your lids (adds the perfect shimmer, and looks more like a silver than blue) and the Lava Gray in the creases.

A trick I've learned along the way is to wet the tip of a thin makeup brush and dip it into the darker shadow to draw on your own eyeliner, top and bottom. Brush on a coat of mascara and you're ready to hit the town!
