Get The Look: Smoky Eyeshadow Holiday Beauty Series by Licensed Beauty Expert, Rachel Odem

Hey Chicas! It's week two of the holiday beauty series. Last week I shared a DIY Smoky Eye look on the blog and so I thought I would share some of the same tips with a little bit of twist for all of you.

The holiday season is a great time to glam up your makeup look, so why not be bold and try a smoky eye. Most people have a little bit of difficulty with getting the look right, so read these tips and watch the video and you will perfect this look in no time. Enjoy!Prime: Apply an eye shadow primer or cream shadow to the lid. This will make the color more intense and help the color to stay on all day. I have noticed a lot of my fellow YouTubers seem to like the pencils from NYX Cosmetics.Tools: You will need a flat brush to layer the shadow on multiple times and create a deep sultry dark smoky eye. Try brush #242 from MAC. I love it because you can use it for concealer too.

Shade: Corinne is wearing the most popular shade for a smoky eye, but I love to see the smoky eye in different colors. Be creative. Try creating this look with the classic black, blue or even purple. Check out the video below to see my twist on a blue smoky eye.

Refine: Line your upper lash line and inner rim of the lower lash line with a black eyeliner. Be sure to smudge the liner to create the smoky effect. Finish with black mascara and a pair of lashes and you’re done. Remember not to over do makeup by keeping the rest of your face neutral.
