The smoky eye is one of those iconic make-up looks, like bright red lips or platinum blonde tresses. The thing with iconic beauty styles is that they are often a little tricky to pull off. The up-keep and maintenance of white-blonde hair, making red lippy stay off your teeth, and applying smoky eye-makeup so you don’t look like you’ve just gone several rounds with Mike Tyson. Black-eyes ain’t pretty ladies.
My favourite piece of equipment for achieving a satisfactorily smoky eye is Prescriptives Softlining Pencil in Jet (£12.00). Not only is the colour a truly deep black but this fab eyeliner has the perfect balance of smudgyness and staying power. I like to layer the liner, applying a fine stroke close to my lash line before blending it with the sponge end of the pencil and then adding another fine layer over the top.
What I REALLY adore about this product though is that i can use it on the inner rim of my eyes and it’ll stay put.
