What is it: This collection features everything you need to create a smoky eye look. From a soft, matte look to a bold, high-shimmer eye, it's easy with the colors in this palette. The collection also comes with Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara--both in the blackest black--as well as a dual-ended eye shadow/eyeliner brush and an ultra-fine eyeliner brush.
Who is it for: The woman who wants the right products and tools to create different versions of the smoky eye for various occasions.
Why is it different: Creating a smoky eye can be confusing and intimidating, so Bobbi designed this kit to offer everything you need--from base shade to mascara--to achieve the perfect look. Not only that, it also gives options for different versions of the smoky eye.
How do I use it: Use the eye shadow brush to apply Ivory eye shadow all over the lid, from the lash line to the brow bone. The base shade will create a smooth surface for the darker shades to blend more easily. Apply a slightly darker shadow--try Sterling Shimmer Wash or Steel Eye Shadow--on the lower lid, from the lash line up to the crease. Layer a deeper shade from the same color family directly over it--try Black Charcoal Metallic Eye Shadow--and blend well.
Bobbi recommends double-lining eyes for the smokiest effect. Start with Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner applied with the ultra-fine eyeliner brush, then layer Charcoal eye shadow directly over it. If you want, extend the liner slightly beyond the outer corners of the eyes. Finish with at least two coats of Lash Glamour Mascara to complete the look.
Tip: Bobbi recommends doing a smoky eye first, and then the rest of the face to allow for any shadow fall-out clean-up.
