Smokey Eyes 101

Smokey Eyes 101

It is perhaps unusual that smokey eyes are a trend for the summer months this year, but what the heck! -- you wanna go with the flow. And I have to admit that as impractical (and wrong) it may be to wear make up the beach, the combination of smokey eyes, wet hear, and bathing-suits we see in the fashion editorials is just to die-for. So here is my shipping list for pulling that look... 

 1. Quick-dry liquid eye marker with a felt tip applicator and a deep intense color.

Sila Eyeliner $21.00

 2. An eyeliner with a creamy texture. Look for one with a precision point pen and free from parabens. I am partial to Pixie's.
Pixie Eyeliner $18.00
Bourjois marker $9.00

 3. Some mousse eyeliner. Yep, to do the smudging and give the smoldering effect.

NYX eyeliner $13.00
E.l.f touch eyeliner

 4. Metallic eye shadow of your choice of blue matched with dark palette. Here are some choices ...
