Ask anyone–from experienced beauty bloggers, to makeup addicts to makeup artists and the one eye makeup look everyone is looking to improve is the smoky eye. The new Laura Mercier Classic Smoky Eye Palette goes a long way to help you master the technique. Read on for more…
I can’t even count how many makeup tutorials on creating a smoky eye that I’ve watched–hundreds, for sure. Even though I could recite the steps in my head, I always feel like there is something more I can learn. When I was in Saks during Fashion’s Night Out and asked to see the Laura Mercier Classic Smoky Eye Palette, the beauty advisor told me there was one left and I grabbed it.
The Laura Mercier Smoky Eye Palette includes four eye colours–Sparkling Noir (luster, new exclusive), Granite (matte, exclusive), Sable (sateen) and Vanilla (matte, exclusive), as well Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony. Also included are 3 brushes: a double-ended Smudge/Crease Brush, a double-Ended Flat Eye Liner/ Pointed Eye Liner Brush and a Travel Eye Colour Brush. The brushes are excellent quality. [Updated: now available in a set which includes full-size Faux Lash Mascara Intense Exaggeration in Black, and full-size Lip Glacé in Bare Nectar.]
An instructional foldout on achieving Laura’s Classic Smoky Eye is also included to guide you through the step by step process. Even if your application skills aren’t perfect, the colors are universally flattering and the end result is a beautiful smoky eye. If you’re looking for a polished daytime look, the lighter eyeshadow shades are perfect. I’m so glad I bought this palette, as I know it will be one of my favorites. And for Fall, this color palette is gorgeous; one of the best smoky eye palettes I’ve seen.
