The effortless Smokey Eye.

Lets be honest here, not everyone has the patience and/or the time to create the perfect smokey eye every time they apply their makeup. A flawless smokey eye can sometimes take me 20 minutes when working with many a shadow, liner etc.

Lately I have been loving the shadow sticks. Most major cosmetic companies have a variation. Essentially it is just a cream eyeshadow in stick form.

All it takes to get a flawless smokey eye is 5 minutes. Apply the stick directly to the mobile lid and up to the crease. ( slightly over if you have hooded eyes) Then take a small fluffy blending brush (like a MAC 217) and blend upward slightly towards the brow bone. I then take the blending brush and run under the lower lash line with whatever product is left on the brush to tie the look together.

Sometimes I leave the process there, for a more intense eye I set the cream with a similar shadow and highlight the brow bone/ inner corner. I tend to stick to bronze/brown shades to enhance my blue eyes.
