Got this amazing Benefit Cosmetics Smokin Eye Kit from ASOS Beauty & am loving it!! I’ve always had a hard time putting together the right colors and tools to create the perfect smokey eye. Also had the hardest time even learning how to do it in the first place! After trying this Smokin Eye kit from Benefit I am obsessed! I will definitely be using this from now on!
What it does:
Benefit Smokin’ Eyes… has everything a gal needs to create sexy, smoky “after hours” eyes and perfectly groomed brows in no time. With the blendable shades and a step-by-step lesson, even makeup-phobes can smoke it out like pros. When the sun goes down, this smoldering eye kit comes out to play!
I really love the eyeshadow colors in this palette. Also the step by step instructions are quite helpful because I really didn’t know what the heck the other products were!
I usually never use the instructions that are included with palettes like this because can never figure it out to begin with but for some reason smokey eyes have always been even more difficult for me so I decided to give it a try & was very pleased with the results! Because of this I even included the step by step instructions here at the end of this post in case you want to try it with some of your own existing colors!
The brow wax is quite handy if you don’t want to bring extra products while traveling. Overall, a great palette with flattering colors! I don’t do black smokey eyes well with my olive skin tone. I just look dead. I always try to do a type of charcoal smokey eye because it works better with olive skin tones. This one’s a good one. Perfect for travel! Oh there’s even a magnet that keeps the top shut, and it also keeps the tweezers in place so you don’t lost them. Loving!

-eye bright 0.09 g Net wt. 0.03 oz.

Check out the tutorial below with the step by step instructions I described I used. If you don’t have the Benefit Smokin Eyes kit rummage through your makeup drawer & try it with some of your existing colors! Try others besides grey/black. I bet browns would look awesome and work really well with this. Let me know what you think!
