I am always in a rush trying to get out in the week for a quick dinner with the hubbie or friends so I am always looking for easy ways to apply makeup and products that just work some magic. I love a smokey eye but unless its a Friday or Saturday night where I can take my time at my vanity table I need one product to create the smokey. If you haven’t gotten your hands on the Clarins Ombre matt cream to powder eyeshadow then this really is the business for a quick smokey eye.
As its a cream base you need to apply a primer first so that the product lasts longer apply the eyeshadow to the lids and the best thing is you don’t need a blending brush you just apply to the lids and blend out. I added a little extra to the the lash line and then blended the product in with my fingers up to my crease.
The great thing about the product is that it changes from a cream to a powder giving a matt finish that doesn’t crease and is the easiest smokey eye. If you aren’t a fan of the carbon black shade I have used then there are a range of shades including my fav colbalt blue and for you dark skin girls the ultra violet works a treat.
