Favorite Smoky Eye Shadow
I'll start this by saying, I'm not a huge eye shadow girl. I love the way it looks, but sometimes, I don't have the time to really vamp up my eyes, so I just go with my basic makeup routine. Foundation depends on the weather and where. I switch off between Tom Ford Flawless Foundation Powder or Traceless Foundation stick [love his powders and foundations], blush, mascara and lip color. [I'll post later about my favorite blush and lip colors.] However, there are times when I want to bring a little attention to my eyes. On those times, I apply a little Illusion D'Ombre #85 Mirifique. I got mine at Saks, but I saw it on the Neiman Marcus website as well. The dark color allows you to fake a smoky eye in a couple of strokes across the top lid and under the eye. Another thing I like about it, is it comes with it's own brush making it easy to pack. The creaminess is another added plus. FOR ME, it lasts long. On the days, I do wear eye shadow, I need it to last and this one does. Long lasting for me is at least 8 hours and this goes the distance. Let's not forget, a great smoky eye is perfect for date night or a special night at home doing whatever, with whomever. Got to Chanel, Saks or Neiman Marcus for other color options.
