Smokey eyes are back! And we are sure it will make you feel instantly hot this winter. Start out by priming the eyes to ensure long lasting color. Apply a matte or shimmery black eyeshadow (try our Pigment Eyeshadow in ‘Naughty Noire’) to the entire lid and across the lower lash line. Line eyes with black eyeliner and coat lashes with 2-3 coats of black Volumizing Mascara. To avoid looking like a ‘racoon’ add a bit of shimmery white eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eyes, this will brighten up the look. Apply our Mineral Face Primer and Flawless Finish Foundation. Don’t forget concealer! Conceal under eye circles with our Complete Coverage Concealer to brighten up the center of the face and prevent the smokey eye from looking to ghastly. Next, contour the edges of the face with bronzer and apply a peach toned blush (try our Studio Blush in ‘Peachy Keen’) to the apples of the cheeks. Finish off the look with a tinted lip balm (try our Mineral Moisturizing Lip Tint in ‘Pink’) or a clear gloss and your good to go!
