As I was shooting these pictures, I was reminded how much I actually ADORE
a great smokey eye. This used to be my favorite every day look for years. Smokey, heavily lined and smudged eyes with a pale nude lip. I recently stumbled upon the Fergie CenterStage Collection Eyeshadow by Wet n Wild in Metropolitan Nights, $5.29 at Walgreens.com
, while on a quick run to pick up my beloved Elnett hairspray. What first caught my eye was the shimmering metallic gold color, but as I reached for this little gem, I actually squealed with excitement. The other colors in this kit are amazing as well! I first applied the light cream color to my entire eyelid. Then I took the dark metallic charcoal and blended it across my lower lid. After lining the inner rim of my lash line with a black eyeliner, I took the same dark color and smudged around my entire eye. I then quickly dusted the lighter taupe across the lower part of my lids to soften the harsh edges. To complete my look, I of course had to put on my favorite pale lipstick by Dolce & Gabbana in Nude.
If you have light eyes like I do, a smokey eye will really make your eyes pop. I was definitely loving the change. One of my favorite things about makeup is you can reinvent yourself 365 days a year. So today I’ll be a Rockstar-
