How do you make the smoky eye look of Catherine Zeta Jones?

Please be specific because I really want to get how her eyes look. I've seen some pics of her without eye make-up and it really makes a difference.

    Ok, all you have to do (so it's not crazy expensive) is buy a nice black eyeshadow. You don't need any other colors because if you want gray you just don't use as much black. I usually buy a black liner that has a little bit of shimmer to it so when I apply it to the outer part of my eye lid it's not just a plain black. Ok, take a very thing eye liner brush and dip the tip in water and then squeeze the brush with your fingers to press the brissles together. Dip it in the black shadow and start in the outer corner of your eye. Drag the brush from where the very point of your eyelashes start and get lighter as you go into the midle of your eye. For the top. Only put dark liner on the outsides near the corners (you still should bring the black line all the way over to where your eyelashes stop and make it lighter than the rest of the way) Ok, Once your liner looks right take that same brush and rub it against a towel to dry it off. Once you do that, take the brush and dry dip it into the liner...not too much though. Take the brush and starting from where you applied the liner on the outer side just drag it from eyelash to about 1/4 inch away from the eye. You don't want it to look like you have eyeliner that is running, so make sure that the line nearest your eyelashes is darked than anything you drag away from your eye. To finish it off, dip your pinky in the black shadow and on the top of your lid blend it into the outer corner and make the bottom liner and the top liner meet and come to a small point. Top of with mascara. This makes your eye not only look bigger, but gives it that smokey effect as well!

    its best to get a good eyeliner, mascara, and four pack eyeshadow with greys and blacks...or for more adventuresome nights somthign fun like green...first, line the top and bottom lids with the darkest color in the four pack...to make it more dramatic, put a thicker line, less dramatic use a thiner line...its easy to do this with a slightly wet eyeshadow brush or i jsut use the tip of the little foam thing it comes with if i cant find the good one; then use the lightest color to fill in from your brow line down to your crease. then take the second darkest color and put it in the crease of your eyelid, finally sweep the second lightest color over the actual eyelid...to gve a distinct cat eye, make a little check at the outer edge of the crease with the eyeliner. the first time, it might look silly...you have to try a few times to get ti right..and also, it takes some getting used to...i never used to wear eyeliner, and now i love it! good luck

    Very Simple..I do it all the time. Put a gray on the lid of your eye, then under your eyebrow put a silvery pearl color and in the middle, do a black. and rub them in together so you wont know where each one starts and stops.
