Makeup Artist | Armani gives us Smokey! Eyes to Kill Palette

As a makeup artist I love a good smokey eye. But, when one thinks of smokey I they think dark browns, and blacks. However, a smokey eye can be actually created with any color,and that's why I am loving Armani's new Smokey Eye Shadows, Eyes to Kill Palette.

How genius and gorgeous. For those of you who are challenged when it comes to creating a smokey eye, you will be happy to know that these shadows come with coordinating colors to create the perfect eye.

Still need help? Give your girl a call and we can make that smokey eye happen!
