I'm probably the last person you want to come to for tips on how to properly apply makeup. I don't know much about the smoky eye look, the right concealer, or which lipstick matches what outfit. I've had my own makeup regimen for years and stick to it. What I don't stick to, however, is shades and colors of makeup. I like to experiment with eye shadow, blending colors together. Sometimes it's blue eyeliner for me, and sometimes it's brown or black. In other words, whatever floats my boat for that day is what I'll wear.
Smashbox, a company known for their makeup, recently gave me the opportunity to try their Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio and Always Sharp Liner. I love the way both add dramatic effect to my eyes and provide coverage for most of the day.
There are several color variations for the Eyeshadow Trio, with one of them being Skybox. That particular trio features three hues of blue. Each eye shadow trio includes three coordinated shadows so you can apply them as a base shade, contour color, and highlighter. I don't apply the eye shadow in that particular order or pattern, but rather put the lightest shade on first and then one of the darker shades over it.
Right after applying eye shadow, I apply eyeliner. Again, Smashbox has a variety of colors available for their liner. The Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner is, well, waterproof. It also self-sharpens every time you twist the cap off. It has a sharpener built right in the cap. I definitely dig that feature! It's quality makeup that brings out the best in my eyes.
One person will win a Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio from Smashbox. (ARV $28)
