    The smoky eye trend is still going strong, but now it's fresh and bright for spring. Here in the office we are in love with this look! One day four of us all came to work rocking it. You can refer to the Quick Smoky Eye Techniquefor a basic how-to (we all used some variation of this). We have included pictures and listed the products we used below. Have fun, we did! Lovely Lilac: Gorgeous Green:
    • Apply three coats of PureLash Lash Extender & Conditionerto lashes.
    • Apply three coats of Black Ice Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara to lashes.
    • Apply a tiny bit of Petal Lid Primer over the whole lid.
    • Apply Black/Brown Eye Pencilin a thick line across the upper lash line and under the lower lashes.
    • Apply Green SilkEye Gloss to the outer two-thirds of the upper lid with the Crease Brush.
    • Apply Cut Grass from Artists' Eyes II to the inner third of the upper lid with the Crease Brush.
    • Using the Crease brush again, blend the two shades together well.
    • Highlight the inner corner of the eye and the brow bone with Oyster PurePressed Eye Shadow with the Crease Brush.
    • Using the Mini-Dome Brush, apply Cut Grass from Artists' Eyes II to highlight everywhere you placed the Eye Pencil.
