Hi Ladies,Are you ready for Christmas? Are you already starting to feel a little stressed because there is so much to do, but so much fun to have? Or maybe you are makeup challenged like me? A person who's makeup skills are easily overshadowed by the average teenage girl.
Well, never fear! Here's an easy smokey eye that I was taught at a makeup counter one day.
In this tutorial, I will be using Studio Gear's Holiday Smokey Eye Palette. I'm happy to be partnering with them and to be able to offer readers of Petite Career Girl a 10% discount on their entire order with this code: SGHOLIDAY. I think this palette is a steal at $25 because it contains 4 shimmery shadows: coal grey, gold, winter white and silver, plus a warm pink blush. I found the colors to be sheer, but build-able. Here we go!
- Apply a dark primer or cream shadow like this one. **Don't skip this step or your won't have a deep smokey look.**
- Pat and press the coal shadow onto your lid and into the crease.
- Dip your brush into the pink blush color and blend it into the crease (I know this sounds weird, but it produces a very natural look.)
- Take the same coal shadow and line under your eye with an angle brush
- Add mascara and Voila!
**As a bonus, I also used the gold shadow as a highlighter above my cheekbones.**
I'm always on the lookout for easy make-up looks, so please share yours in the comment section!
