For her first red carpet appearance with husband Justin Timberlake since April, Jessica Biel — a longtime fan of neutral makeup — switched to a sultry, smoky eye that complemented her new bangs on October 15. Take a close look: It's just the right amount of subtle for weddings, Thanksgiving with the in-laws and that New Year’s Eve party you haven’t made plans for yet.

Here’s how to copy Biel's makeup, straight from her makeup artist, Fabiola, in three simple steps:

1. Apply kohl liner, then smudge all over with a brush, slightly winging out ends. “Keep color close to the lash lines to create a nice dark and smoky base,” she says.

2. Blend the pewter shade from the shimmer strips palette up to the crease.

3. Finish with two to three coats of ebony mascara.
