sexy, smoky party eyes!

Holiday 33

With all the holiday parties upon us, it’s time to put on our “A Game” and look like the hot mamas (sisters, grandma’s, ladies!!) that we are!  I enlisted the help of FABULOUS Misha from Holiday Salon to help us all out.  She is my favorite Orange County make-up go-to girl and knows all the best tricks to make your assets work for you! You will look even more amazing once she has worked her magic!  Misha helped me with my “hot smoky eyes” for Halloween that my husband loved!  And the makeup stayed in place for all our parties that day with no touch ups…and Misha applied it at 1:00pm that day!

So here goes, 5 minutes to hot, sexy eyes!

1. Draw a thick line of black eyeliner pencil at lash base on your top eye lid.

2. Smudge pencil blending up toward the crease with a smudge brush so that the color fades as it goes away from eyelash line.

3. Brush favorite lighter color eyeshadow all over lid to soften and blend.
