Simple Smokey

I have recently been sent this MAC grease paint stick to try and I love it. It is such an easy route to a quicker than quick smokey eye. They are like a thick, metallic crayon with a smooth, creamy texture. I have the beautiful Greengrease which is a dark forest green with pewter grey undertones. You just draw it all over the lid making sure that you leave no gap at the lashline and blend it out with your finger at the edges and at the socket. You can pull it out towards your temple to make a feline shape to your eye. It's so easy to use, just scribble and blend. No brushes needed.

To finish the smokey effect, I love to pat one of the MAC pigments on top. They add another dimension to the look with their metallic finishes. One of my very favourite shades is Blue Brown and it is totally fab over the Greengrease stick. Blue Brown is a two tone pigment (as the name suggests! ). It is great over any dark pencil or grease stick but not so good on it's own as it turns too reddish- brown when applied to a clean lid. Again, no brushes necessary; use your ring finger to pick up a small amount from the lid and pat it over the eyeball, keeping it just to the lid; not the socket. Keep it simple; it looks classier!
