We beautygeeks live for those little professional tricks that take makeup from pretty good to great. When Lloyd Simmonds, creative director for Yves Saint Laurent makeup (and BC-born Canadian expat in Paris) shared with us his secret to the perfect smoky eye, we geeked out and did a happy dance. Then we pointed a camera at Lloyd and asked him to share his tip with you. See the video below.
See? Just slight adjustments in how we use a brush et voilà. Beautifully blended smoky eyes.
Will you try Lloyd's secret to the perfect smoky eye? Or maybe you have a foolproof blending trick of your own?
And let's ponder, for a moment, this vibrant blue shadow with the model's bright blue eyes. Does it work for you?
