I think it’s safe to say that I’m pretty good at applying makeup. In fact, back in middle school, I was always the girl at the sleepover party who was doing everyone else’s makeup. But one look has always been missing from my skill set: the smoky eye.
I guess I’m just intimidated by the delicate balance the smoky eye requires: picking just the right color combination, smudging out just enough without looking like you’ve been in a boxing ring, getting the liner to stay in place, etc.
But I recently discovered a single product that makes the smoky eye possible-and easy-for even the most makeup-inept woman: Cat Cosmetics offers Smolder, a shadow and liner duo in a single implement.
One side is an incredibly flattering, super-creamy bronze shadow that glides on beautifully and smudges into a perfectly contoured effect. Completing the look is the black liner on the other side, which is easy to control, long-wearing, and just dramatic enough to make the finished look intense but wearable.
Smolder has become my go-to for going-out eye makeup, because it not only creates an enviable smoky eye, but it does so in a fraction of my usual making-up time!
