Get the Look: Smoky Eyes

Some exciting news on the Product Girl front! We’ve teamed with Revlon to create videos each month highlighting beauty trends. We are very excited to be a part of this effort (we’re in good company!) First up? Conquering the smoky eye. One of our favorite looks, yet one that we recognize can be a challenge. We promise…it’s not that scary. And if it is, embrace it. A little smoke around the rims of your eyes is sexy!

In this video, we focused on three products to get the smoky look:

  • Revlon PhotoReady™ Eye Primer + Brightener
  • Revlon® ColorStay™ 16 Hour Eye Shadow  (in Siren)
  • Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume™ Mascara

I really liked the Eye Primer + Brightener. I’ve been using it a lot in place of concealer (or in conjunction with, depending on how many hours of sleep I’m getting!) with great results. It also works as a subtle highlighter along the cheekbone. Because I liked this one so much, I’m giving away 10 of the Revlon PhotoReady™ Eye Primer + Brightener. To enter, leave a comment on this post by next Friday, March 23. I’ll select 10 winners at random at the end of the day.

And, we’ll be back each month with a new look. With each one, I hope to impart some beauty 4-1-1. Also, you guys, videos are hard! Kudos to you that do them often. Major kudos.

  1. I usually give a glance to the Revlon eyeshadows, but I may have to give them a closer look next time and pick one up.

  2. I love the smoky eye look. Great demo. I do like Revlon but actually do not own any eye products.

  3. I have the 3D mascara and love it. It definitely makes my lashes look like I’m where falsies. Haven’t tried the brightener yet though 😉
