I love a smokey eye, it’s probably the look that flatters my face best, but time is of the essence and the perfect smokey eye can sometimes be as hard to achieve as human flight. Sometimes, it’s just not gonna happen.
Now I’m not just telling you this to bum you out, I of course have a solution up my sleeve! I’ve got a simple, go to, two step smokey eye back up plan. Did the title give it away?
My go to smokey eye fix comes in the form of a crayon and a pencil. I’ve waxed lyrical on the Kiko Shadow Stick in 06 Bronze before, a gorgeous bronzed taupe shadow stick with a beautifully creamy formula and awesome staying power, so you know the drill by now. I take the crayon all over my lid, not being particularly neat or careful, and blend it at the edges, with either a coarse bristle brush or my finger tips, either works!
When that’s done, I take the Max Factor Kohl Liner in Black messily along my upper lash line, and my waterline too. I just take a q-tip or a small brush and blend the edges of the liner, which creates a dark, smokey effect along the lash line.
Finish off with lashings of mascara! It’s that easy. It’s a two minute job and it looks awesome!
