Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Palette

I love the look of liquid eyeliner but I always shy away since I have really unsteady hands. I bought a Try Me kit from Smashbox a few months ago and the cream eyeliner has been hiding out in the bottom of my makeup box because I was too afraid to try it.

I had a little extra time last week and decided to try the cream eyeliner since the cute little box was just calling my name. I wish I hadn’t waited so long I love it, the cream is really easy to work with and the results are amazing. I have gotten bolder as the week progressed and tried some of the colors I love the blue its dark enough to not look overdone it just gives your eyes an extra little kick.

Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Palette

Packed with ten of Smashbox’s most sought after Cream Eyeliner colors, an oversized mirror, and a mini Cream Eyeliner Brush, this palm-sized palette is a definite must-have.

Brow Know-How

Want to know how to acheive the perfect brows?  Try these 3 simple steps!! (I’ve got it all down except the not plucking above the brow…I always have a few I’ve gotta pluck!) 

  • Trace: Use a white eye pencil to outline your ideal brow shape, then plucking hairs outside the line.
  • Pluck: Only tweeze beneath and between the brows. (Most pros prefer slant-tip tweezers) Removing hairs above can result in a lower arch.
  • Perfect: Use a pencil the shade of your brows to fill in gaps, blen with brow powder two shades lighter and set with.

PS: This is my favorite brow liner:
