My favorite "night on the town look" of all time is a smokey eye and pale shiny nude lip. Hands down- this combination gets rave reviews from my husband every time I wear it. This photo of Blake Lively from my guilty pleasure tv show Gossip Girl (courtesy of InStyle Magazine), shows how you can wear a smokey eye without making it look too goth or harsh. Just use a light hand and lots of blending when applying your smokey greys and black shadows and you too can become movie star worthy.
Here are two great products that can get you that smoldering look in a flash without having to buy a bunch of separate products:
1. Benefit's Smokin' Eyes Kit ($36) This all-in-one kit contains everything from shadows, liners, to the instruction manual on how to apply all the colors to get a sexy smokin' eye. It even contains brow products like tweezers and angled brushes, bc like I always say, no eye look is complete with the brows being in order- they're the frameworks of the face! There should be no excuses for screwing this look up with all the info given!!
2. Nar's Lip Gloss in Chihuahua ($24) is the perfect sheer pinky (they describe it as "guava" colored) lip gloss. This color works on EVERYBODY. No lip liner or lipstick needed- just a couple swipes of this color and your pout is ready to get noticed!
These two products take the guess work out of getting all dolled up...
