Hey, ladies! On Halloween some of you asked for a tutorial describing the MAC Smokey Eyes look I wore to dinner.

How I Did the Eyes
First, to improve the staying power of my eye makeup, I prepped my lids with a thin layer of Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
Then, with a MAC 249 synthetic shader brush, I patted a layer of Nice Vice Paint Pot onto the lid and into the crease.
With Smolder Eye Kohl, I drew a very thick line on my lids and along my upper lash and water lines…
…and then along the lower lash and water lines, doing my best to really get the pencil between the root of each lash (darkening the skin between the lashes to enhance the desired effect).
Knowing I was going to smudge pigment on top of the liner, I didn’t worry about messy lines.
