Light and Lovely Summer Smoky Eye Tutorial

I love a smoky eye, but sometimes the drama of a dark smoky eye can be too much for summer.  I like switching up my smoky eye when the temperature starts rising: instead of traditional blacks, I swap in browns and golds for a more summery vibe.

Directions:

Step 1: Apply Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream Skin Perfector all over your face.  Next, apply Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator just to the upper apples of your cheek bones and temples.

Step 2: Squeeze out small amount of COVERGIRL Bombshell Shine Shadow Eye Shadow in Copper Fling onto your fingers and apply it to your lids. Any excess shadow can be swept under your lower lashes.

Step 3: Apply thick line of COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Eye Liner in Chocolate Kiss.  This line doesn’t have to perfect, as you will go in before the liner dries and smudge the liner with your finger to soften the line.

Step 4: Apply COVERGIRL Bombshell Intensity Eye Liner in Chocolate Kiss to your lower lash-line as well, and smudge it again to soften the lines.  Feel free to intensify your lower lashes by applying the liner to your waterline (the inner rim of your lower lash-line).
