How To: All You Need For Smokey Eyes…

I get loads of questions about the perfect items for a smokey eye.  There are several ways to do it BUT the most popular way is to start with a liner and build from there.  A celeb who has the smokey eye game on LOCK is Ms. Kardashian…she NEVER strays from her look which for some can be seen as boring or predictable.  I say, if it looks good why mess with a good thing right??  She has inspired countless youtube videos on how to get her look, so she must be doing something right.

    I need to work on getting a palette for this. I saw the smokey eye tutorial on Youtube but Kim's version is way too heavy for everyday wear. But the smokey eye is definitely my signature look this year. Im loving it! Just need to tweek it a bit.
