Birchbox Breakdown

This purse-friendly kit has everything you need to create a gorgeous, sultry eye look in minutes—and we’re not just blowing smoke. Whether you’re riding in the back of cab on the way to an impromptu happy hour or just holed up in the ladies’ room at work, you can smudge and blend to your heart’s content without calling for backup. Plus, the mini brow tools will ensure that your perfectly tweezed arches are up to par.

How it Works

We’ll take that smoky eye to go, please. In this handy kit, three complementary eye shadows work together to smoke-ify your lids. The Eye Bright highlighter helps brighten up the inner corners of your eyes, while the mini Smokin’ Liner traces a black line that’s perfect for smudging. Meanwhile, the dual-ended shadow brush lets you apply the products with spot-on precision. Bonus: The mini tweezers and Brow Zings shaping wax allow you to create perfectly sculpted brows.

How to Use

To start, apply the pewter base shadow to your lids with the rounded end of the shadow brush. Next, apply the pink highlight shadow from the top of your eye crease to the brow line. Using the deep charcoal shadow, create a tiny V-shape that conforms to the outer corner of your eyelid. Blend and blend (it doesn’t have to be perfect—a chic ombre look is what you’re going for). Next, trace your top and bottom lash line with the Smokin’ Liner. Using your middle finger, apply some of the pink Eye Bright to the inner corner of each eye. To tame your brows, dip the angled end of the shadow brush into the Brow Zings shaping wax and gently brush each brow in the direction of hair growth. Use the mini tweezers to pluck misbehaving hairs.

Smokey eye kit for dummies

If you're like me, making a "Smokey eye" can be difficult. Honestly, when I used the Benefit pallet, I created my first ever smokey eye! I couldn't believe it! It really doesn't require a lot of effort to achieve the look. If you follow the guide, it doesn't take much apply the colors. The shadows go on easily and smoothly. They're rich in depth and color, but don't feel heavy like others I have used. I also like how you can tone them down and soften the look.
