CoverGirl Smoky Eye Look (my review: before and after)

 As a stay at home mom, I know how easy it is to get stuck in a rut with my routine from day to day. I try my hardest to make sure I look presentable, but I often skip over using certain makeup products that I lack confidence in using and don't have the time to learn. I thought that the Smoky Eye Look kit from CoverGirl was one of those things that I just didn't have time to experiment with.

Boy, was I wrong.

Through Collective Bias, an opportunity came my way to try out this look. I couldn't get over how much fun the review kit looked like and decided to take this as my time to learn another way.

I was perfectly giddy when my Makeup Master Studio kit arrived from CoverGirl. Take a look at this video. I'll bet you would be excited for this to come to your home!

With my tools in hand, I decided to sit down with my information and learn a bit more.

The Smoky Eye Look Kit Comes In Three Styles
There is a Natural Look, a Glamorous Look, and a Bold Look kit available to purchase. Within each kit, I found a SmokyShadowBlast stick, an Exact Liquid Line eyeliner, and a LashBlast Mascara in complimenting shades. These are the only 3 things you need to create the Smoky Eye Look. Right on the inside of the box, I found the 3 steps to follow. They were clearly and easily laid out and I had no trouble at all following them.

Before I got started with my very first try, I read Molly Stern's tips found at . Since she's an "in demand" CoverGirl makeup artist, I thought I should see what she has to say.  After the quick review, I felt like I was ready to give it a shot.

The Smoky Eye Look Kit is Easy To Use
You know me. I'm not going to try something like this out without showing you my experience. So, to give you an idea of how easy this look is to attain, I made a video for you.

The Smoky Eye Look Makes All The Difference

I want to give you a side by side look at these different kits. You can see the dramatic difference it makes and you've already seen how easy it is to get the end result. 

Smoky Eye Look ~ Natural kit
This gives a simple *punch* to my look for everyday wear. It's earthy and beautiful.

Smoky Eye Look ~ Glamorous Kit
 Look at how the blue color of my eyes pops with these silver and gray hues. I find this look to be so nice and I literally feel like one million dollars wearing these colors.  I think this dresses up my look a bit and is very complimentary.

Smoky Eye Look ~ Bold Kit
 What a fun look for summer! This brightens up my whole face and really plays on the color of my eyes. I never thought blue eyeshadow would look good on me but I stand corrected...and I love it.

Bold Is Beautiful!
