For August, I want to see you rock SMOKEY EYES!  Show us your favorite smokey eye–whether it’s colored, gray, black, or even a bit neutral.

The Challenge | Rock the smokey eye! Figure out where you are in your comfort zone, and then take it to the next level…

  • “They’re pretty to look at, but I’d never wear it!” | Your Challenge: Wear it in the comfort of your own home.
  • “I’ve tried it, but I couldn’t wear it out” | Your Challenge: Wear it to the grocery store! Round up some pals (or get the man in your life) to take you somewhere hip and trendy.
  • “There is this one smokey eye…” | Your Challenge: Turn a classic look you do into smokiness with a darker crease.
  • “I rock smokey eyes all the time!” | Your Challenge: Encourage others that wearing smokey eyes can be fun–and that there are many ways to wear them!

    Hmm, I feel silly asking this, but how are smokey eyes different than regular? Like, your green eye, I wouldn’t know to categorize that as smokey eye. Is it just having a darker color in the crease? Or does it depend on how far up and out you extend that darker color?

    • The best part about smokey eyes is that they differ from person to person. Some feel only grays/silvers/blacks classify a smokey eye. Others feel it’s a more dramatic, darker crease.
