My junior year of college, before going abroad, my mom treated me to a girl’s day out that included my first ever eyebrow wax (I know!) and a professional makeover.
Armed with the Revlon Expression kit and a new webcam courtesy of the cosmetics legend, I tried my hand at a new face and shooting my first home video.
I played around with all the different hues, but settled on Cherry Tart, a sheer red lipstick along with the Bombshell theatrical eyeshadow block that made doing a smoky eye a piece of cake.
To get a smoky eye, apply the lightest eye color to your entire lid up to your brow to serve as a highlighter. Apply the medium shade in the crease of your eyelid. Lastly use an angled brush to line above and below your eye smudging as you go to create a smoky effect. Finish with several coats of mascara.
Use the highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes, as well as along the cheekbones to brighten your look.
This was my first time trying out a smoky eye, but I suspect with practice (and doing it in a mirror rather than a webcam) this could become a regular Saturday night look for me.
