When you're heading for a night out and wondering what beauty look to rock, one of the beauty trends that's almost always on every girl's top of mind is the smokey eye. While the smokey eye is often created using black eye shadow, celebs are now ditching the dark hues in creating their smokey eye, and it looks amazing! Find out the different shades you can play with to create this cool, unconventional smokey eye.

Bronze

For a lighter, but still just as pretty take on the traditional smokey eye, opt for bronzed, or golden eye shadow instead! Plus, you can rock this during the day in school and go straight to a hangout right after!

Red

If you're feeling a little bold today, take the unconventional route by choosing a fiery red eye shadow for your unconventional smokey eye. Choose a red shade that's closer to brown, or pink if you're hesitant to try vibrant reds.
