Loves It! The One Minute Smoky Eye

You’ll never sweat this move again!

 - PJ Gach

Amanda Seyfried

Who doesn’t love the smoky eye look? It’s fabulous for day or night, and really amps up your flirting power. We love how Amanda Seyfried’s eye makeup looks. The thing is, it can take up to 20 minutes per eyeball to get it right. You can use three or four eye shadows, two eye liners – in the end you’re a sweaty shaking mess.

Instead of (a) freaking out while attempting to do it or (b) being late because it took so long to do, we love the ease of CoverGirl’s Smoky Shadow Blast ($8.49, drugstore.com). The double-ended wand contains everything you need to create the perfect smoky eye in just about one minute! No more juggling shadows and brushes again.

There are color combinations for day and for night. Now, you can look good and still be on time.

    I wish I could do a smoky eye that well!

  8. shamrockblonde says:

    I always end up looking like a raccoon – or poking myself in the eye – or both – okay usually both – but I’m game – I will give this a shot – thanks!! –

    I love doing the smoky eye but I don’t like the cover girl smoky shadow blast. It doesn’t stay on well even with a primer and I have dry skin.

  10. tcg says:

    I like the smokey I look but I don’t use it much and when I do I feel like it brings out my under eye darkness. But I might try this look out! Does anyone have a good idea for covering under eye darkness?

    The product is junk – I’ve bought two sets of colors and neither stays on. Here’s a tip: dark brown/black/gray/purple (whatever effect you’re aiming for) eyeshadow around your eye, eyeliner on the inside bottom of the rim, above the lashline on the top. Smudge some shimmer on the inside corners (near your nose) to brighten your eyes. Mascara. Done. I’ve never understood how a smokey eye is considered complex.
