04 Nov (Review, Photos, Swatches) Smashbox Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection: Life Is Your Set Eyeliner Pencils
Smashbox Cosmetics’co-founder Davis Factor believes you should have fun with your make up. His new campaign Snappy Holidays showcases models in what appears to be in between takes, with fun candy cane props, and a lot of colorful palettes used on their faces. The packaging on his Holiday Line is bright and cheerful looking and is comprised of a collage of pictures taken by famed photographer Terry Richardson.
This set of five creamy, blendable eye liners from the “Life is Your Set” collection are $ 22.00 ($62.00 value) and make a great stocking stuffer. They are compact for a woman on the go and are infused with vitamins E and C and also jojoba oil. The shades available in this set are Black (jet black), Gold (has a shimmer to it), Emerald (deep green pictured on me), Espresso ( dark rich brown) and Sapphire (deep ocean blue).
I went out of my comfort zone of black and brown and chose the Emerald eyeliner as I had always wanted to try a deep green on my brown eyes. I lined my eyes fully inside and out for a more smoky dramatic look and then blended the color up onto the outer corners of my eyes. Paired with bright red lipstick, I was camera ready for the holidays!
Find these vivid eyeliners at smashbox.com, Sephora, Ulta and Nordstrom.
This is an easy Holiday Party Look to pull off, and can be duplicated in place of the smoky eye using traditional eye shadow. How do you use your eye liners?
