The Smoky Eye Hack You Need to Try

The good ole smoky eye. It’s a staple makeup look that’s classic, kind of like that LBD hanging in your closet. But I know countless people who never attempt to wear it because they think it’s too hard to do. And it can be, if you watch those tutorials that use three brushes, five eyeshadows, false lashes, etc. But I genuinely don’t know who has the time to spend half an hour doing their eyeshadow. What makes a smoky eye a smoky eye is that soft, blended edge to your shadow so I’m here to show you a quick, easy hack for how to get the look in two seconds flat (or maybe more like, 60 seconds).

    Here’s what you need:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • CoverGirl TruNaked Nudes Palette
  • Quo Crease Shadow Brush
  • Vasanti Kajal Waterline Eyeliner
  • Maybelline New York The Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara
