Smoky Eyes for Dummies - with a little help from Avon and Smashbox!

Would it horrify you to know that on occasion I will purposely wear my mascara to bed at night so I can wake up with an easy smoky eye look? Horrible I know!  It's very challenging to get just the right rock star/just rolled out of bed/had sex look without going over the top and looking like a raccoon gone wrong!

What both of my choices here have in common is a powder formula - which provides a softer look than a pencil does and a spongy applicator which I find makes for easier application then with a regular hair brush!

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Eye Smokifier - $9.99 - with a precise soft-tip applicator it creases an instant smoky eye with a loose powder formula that wears for hours - in four shades: Very Black, Khaki, Blue Grey and Bronze.  Available from your Avon rep 1-800-265-AVON or online at www.avon.ca
Smashbox Soft Focus Powder Eye Liner - $25 - from the spring In Bloom Collection - come in matte heather grey and matte dark brown.

Try one for yourself and let us know what you think - or if you have tried one, tell us already!

  1. lol your method seems easier =]

  2. I prefer the Avon ones, so much easier to apply, and it comes in a greater variety of colours! plus it is much easier to find and buy... just online or call to find a rep near you! (plus way cheaper)
