    February nights up here in the Northeast are still long and cold, but it is also the month of romance, and we are in the mood to heat things up! The best makeup look to get in the mood? The smoky eye. It is always on trend, and there are so many variations: it can be done in pretty much any hue and can be sultry and deep or even natural looking. We are so lucky to have access to many creative and talented makeup experts, so we gathered smoky eye looks from our makeup artist and educators around the world and are now sharing them with you! Stay tuned in a couple of weeks for even more gorgeous smoky eye looks.
    We weren't always born knowing how to do the perfect smoky eye, so we learned from makeup artists around the world. And this is our gift to you. ~Jane
