The Secret of The Smokey Eye

Browsing the devil site Pinterest the other night, I came across a DIY eye shadow primer. Thank the sweet Lord because Urban Decay Primer Potion is ridiculous expensive and I’m not about to shell out the cash for that. Apparently, this stuff is comparable (she shows a side by side of hers vs. UD’s). Making it tonight (chapstick is warming between my thighs this very moment), so I’ll let you know how it goes when I use it tomorrow!

Browsing her site, I came upon her The 7 Sins of a Smokey Eye. Life changing, I tell you! Sin #7: Skipping the highlight. It was like I had an epiphany. No wonder I look 10 years older when I do a smokey eye (and hence, never do it). I did a semi-smokey today and highlighted under my eyes and down the side of my nose a bit. Amazingness. So if you’re a makeup junkie wannabe like me, browse her blog, watch her videos, learn something! Maybe I’ll even do some side by side shots of the highlighted vs unhighlighted smokey eye so you can see how horrendous it looks. Just for shits and giggles.

And for those of you makeup nay-sayers.
