How to: the 5 minute smokey eye

Smokey eyes are meant to look effortless. But in reality they often take about 50 stages of immaculate and precise blending, shading, contouring…who has the time! But with a product like a black powder eyeliner, you can create a smokey eye look in five minutes or less.

Then add a sweep of kohl liner on the lower water line and finish off with a ton of mascara

Clean up the loose powder, finish off the rest of your face, and enjoy all the time you just saved!
