  4. I would use the dramatic smokey eye out on a date with the hubby. We have 4 kid’s (2 of which are babies) and haven’t been on a date in 3 years! It’s definitely over do!!!!!

  5. All three are beautiful! But I would go with the dramatic smokey eyes for all the parties. And these tutorials are excellent!!! Thank you!

  6. Definitely the Purple Smoky Eye because even though I am a senior citizen…this will hopefully bring out the green color of my eyes.
    I would wear this daily because it is subtle and lovely.

  7. I really love the Simple and Dramatic Smoky Eye Looks. Both are nice. I think I could wear the Simple look any time but I would go Dramatic for holiday parties and events ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. The smoke & mirrors kit is amazing! It literally has every color that I would need for creating a perfect look for going out on a formal or casual occasion!

  9. My favorite look is the purple smokey eye. I have brown eyes and am always hesitant to play with color, even though I know certain colors would make my eyes stand out more. This purple smokey eye looks perfectly dramatic for me and I’d wear it to all my holiday parties or even Friday night out with the girls!

  10. I love all three but the dramatic smoky eye is my favorite!! I can definitely see wearing it through out the holiday season at all of the festivities but especially my husband’s bday celebration!

  11. I like the purple smoky eye the best since I like a pop of color in my eye make up. I would love to wear this look at my staff holiday party to do something different than my norm. There’s not a lot of opportunity for teachers to wear smoky eye day-to-day!

    However the purple one looks a little bit white and powdery….?
    But I really loved all the three concepts

  15. Purple smokey eye would be best for my hazel eyes. I would wear it to any holiday event, but most likely to my daughter’s birthday celebration.

  16. Is it me, or does the “Simple” look more dramatic than the “Dramatic?”
    I like the Dramatic Smoky Eye best. All three are nice because they don’t require masses of black eyeliner, which has its place, but is often overused.

  17. I love the Purple Smoky Eye Look!

  39. Having used Jane Iredale for going on 4 years now I have purchased a nice little collection of your range in foundations, blushers and bronzes, lip colours and liners but I can’t not have enough eyeshadow colours. I love trying new techniques with new tones and mixing them up. I favour the dramatic smokey eye look as it is bold, elegant and stunning and would attempt it to our up coming business awards formal night. I’m up for a nomination so I will be wearing a full face of makeup with the best eyes I have ever attempted even if it takes me all day and I have to do them three times! Thanks for the tips!

  48. These are all so gorgeous but I think the one that I’d be most inclined to wear is the Dramatic Smokey Eye, which I love. Would wear them all though! I’d wear it in many places with many different things, but would definitely wear on Christmas (in Brisbane with family) and New Year (not sure where I’ll be celebrating), don’t yet know what I’d wear it with though – might plan my outfit around my make up for a change, ha! I’m thinking perhaps with big hair and a summery white dress on Christmas, and for New Year…well, it would definitely involve sparkles… Thanks so much for the tutorials! And also for hosting this giveaway, really love your company’s ethos. (Sorry for overuse of the word ‘wear’). x

  49. I have tried many different eye shadow combos and I keep going back to the simple smoky eye combination. It can be worn to work and to a party and always makes you look polished and put together. In a date setting, it can even make you look sultry.
