What color makeup should I use with blue eyes - blue eyes makeup
by Zuri Magers
After about 15 years of wearing makeup you would think that I would have mastered the art of makeup application, and you might be right! Kind of. I can do a mean mascara job with one hand on the steering wheel while stuck in traffic, and my eyebrow grooming is down to a science. When it comes to eyeshadow and eyeliner, however, I just can't get it right. Attempt a smokey eye? I might as well attempt to run the Boston Marathon. I am, therefore, grateful for any product that attempts to help me out, and have discovered that the Smokey Eye Creator Kit from Pixi is really all that I needed to create a dummy-proof sultry look. No more guessing which eyeshadow colors should be used together or what brush to use. This kit comes with four coordinating eyeshadows that can be mixed and matched depending on your mood ... and skill level. Plus, for further accident proofing, there's also a double sided applicator for the shadow and gel eyeliner! The smudge-proof, waterproof mascara provides the finishing touch. Give me a few more years, and the smokey eye might even be accomplished in rush hour traffic. Just don€™t get any ideas about me in running the Boston Marathon.

I've tested (and collected) enough makeup to know that not all beauty brands are created equal. But that doesn't mean I don't still compulsively hit up the Walgreens cosmetics aisle to scope out the latest bargain beauty loot! I mean, considering how much money I spend on makeup in the grand scheme of things, drugstore products are practically free (a terribly dangerous outlook, I know). Next up on my list of things I'm dying to test out is CoverGirl Smoky ShadowBlasts ($7.99 at Ulta), a double-ended pencil with shadow on one end and liner on the other. It looks remarkably similar to Stila's Convertible Eye Color pencil, which I've always wanted to try but I could never bring myself to shell out $22 for a eye pencil, even if it is 2 in 1. While they both come in a wide variety of coordinating color duos, the Stila version may provide a little more accuracy given that the pencil is thinner. But hey -- the key ingredient to a smoky eye is just a dash of messiness after all, so I'm still leaning towards CoverGirl for a fraction of the cost! I think I can hold my hand steady enough to achieve the look for less just fine!Do you have your own drugstore beauty secrets? Tell us about them in COMMENTS!
