One Trend, Two Ways: Smoky Eye

glominerals smoky eye kit




From runways and red carpets to date nights and the office, smoky eyes are a versatile look perfect for any occasion. Don’t be intimidated by this popular trend, instead use glo minerals Smoky Eye Kit for easy application. This gorgeous compact makes creating a stunning smoky eye simple with four bendable and versatile shades. To demonstrate the endless possibilities, our National Makeup Artist, Janeena, created two looks using the Smoky Eye Kit- one that is perfect of a glamorous night out and another simple look that is appropriate for daytime.


For a dramatic, sultry smoky eye Janeena applied the darkest shade in the Smoky Eye Kit from her lashline to her crease with the Eye Base Brush. Next, she placed the matte, medium-grey shade in her crease and blended with the darker color using the Eye Blender Brush. Then she applied the grey shimmery shade across her entire lid a blended all three shades together. Lastly, she used the lightest shade as a highlight above the crease and in the inner corner of her eye.


For a subtle look that still has a smoky feel, we suggest starting with the light base shades from the kit and applying it across your entire lid. Next, apply the medium gray and shimmery gray shades in the crease and blend with the base shade using the Eye Blender Brush. Finish with a couple coats of Water Resistant Mascara and you are all set!
