The softer side of smoky eyes
When people hear the words “smoky eye”, they often think of deep, dark shades that feel a little intimidating – but black isn’t the only way to do a smoky eye. Talented Pro Makeup Artist Jaimie Attfield puts that stereotype to bed with a quick and easy tutorial for a fresh take on the classic smoky.
The soft-to-shimmering Eye2Eye shades in our New Beginnings collection are essential to this look – taking inspiration from dreamy open landscapes, cherry blossoms and blushing skies, our new shades create the dreamiest eye looks for spring.
Jaimie starts by applying a wash of Eye2Eye in Dawn, a shimmery rosé champagne, across the entire lid for a subtle, light-reflecting base. She then uses the deep dusky rose of Eye2Eye in Chance to define the outer corner of the eyes. The cream-based formula makes it incredibly easy to soften any harsh edges with your fingers, or the T-Kit brush, for a nicely diffused finish. Finally, Jaimie uses the T-Kit liner brush to apply that same deep dusky rose to the lash line for a little added definition – this doesn’t need to be neat, it can be really soft and smudgy.
There you have it ladies and boys, smoky eyes for spring – not such an oxymoron after all...
