6 Ways to Transform the Usual Smoky Eye

One of the easiest ways to glam up any look  is with a great smoky eye. Consider stepping outside of the box this holiday season and try one of these unique looks below to transform the usual smoky eye into a show stopping look.

Emerald Smoky Eyes

Instead of making a statement with the usual red lip, make one with a bold smoky eye, but in green. The perfect green eyeshadow paired with volume lashes will make any holiday look pop, just as we see below on actress and singer, Lucy Hale.

Smoky Wings

Bringing the smoky shadow out along the corners of each eyelid gives an even more dramatic, smokier look with a sultry wing effect, which is sure to take your holiday glam game up a notch! Just see how fabulous this look is on model, Bella Hadid.

Subtly Smoky

Because sometimes less IS more, we love the idea of a subtle smoky eye, as seen below on Eiza González. A faint eyeshadow with a hint of shimmer is the way to go to achieve this elegant look.

Smoky Gold

A gilded smoky eye never looked so good, just as we see below on Nicole Richie who completed her look with classic, full lashes. Try ‘going for the gold’ this season and select a shadow with a shimmery gold tone and try this look for yourself!

Smoke ‘n Glitter

A smoky eye should never be limited to only dark gray shades, but can work beautifully when glittery, warm tones are used. Just see how fabulous Emma Stone’s eyes look! We also really love how the smoky look was not just applied to her top lid, but also underneath along her lower lash line for an even more sultry look. #bowchicawowwow

Blue Smoky Eyes

Try taking the usual smoky eye up a notch by accenting the look with a pop of blue in the inner corners, just as Kelly Rowland did. Then of course, her lashes complete the look with the perfect amount of length and curl.

5 Eye Makeup Looks We’re Ready to Try This…

Fall is right around the corner and we’re ready for all of the stylish trends the season brings, including these 5 eye makeup looks! From warm toned hues to pretty pops of color, we can’t wait to try each one of these trends.

Bring autumnal tones to your eyes with orange-red hues around your lash line. Priyanka Chopra only recently showed off her pre-wedded bliss, but with this look, she was glowing long before Nick Jonas popped the question. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Blue Eyeliner

“Swap your basic black eyeliner and even shadow for eye-brightening blues, from cobalt to cerulean,” says Good Housekeeping’s Beauty Director April Franzino. “Make it less ’80s by blending a thin line of blue above your regular black on top lids or wearing a sheer wash of slate up to your crease only.” Copy Lupita Nyong’o’s BAFTA Awards look with a bold red lip, or go light on lip and cheek colors to keep things balanced and wearable.

Voluminous Lower Lashes

There’s some ’60s flair in Tracee Ellis Ross’s Oscars makeup. Her dramatic lashes go perfectly with another fall favorite: a classic red lip. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Smudged Liner

If you find that your pencil liner gets a little smudgy by the middle of the day, don’t wipe it off — just mimic Emmy Rossum and embrace it, because this ’90s grunge look is trending like crazy. (via goodhousekeeping.com)


Two-Tone Eyeshadow

One of the boldest red carpet eye makeup looks in recent memory was when Scarlett Johansson stepped out at the Avengers premiere. Pick two shadows in your go-to palette and combine them by applying one hue all around your eye, and create a smoky eye effect on top with the other. (via goodhousekeeping.com)

Our Favorite Beauty Looks from the 2018 Met Gala

From glowing complexions, picture perfect lips and stunning lashes and brows – we’re still swooning over these looks from the 2018 Met Gala last week! See below for some of our favorite looks from this star studded event.


Kerry Washington

The Scandal actor brought va-va-volume to the red carpet with soft, brushed-out curls, courtesy of hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew. While Washington’s hair was still wet, the hairstylist diffused it (using the GHD Air Diffuser) to add volume and a whole lot of texture. Once dry, Sturdivant-Drew used the Tangle Teezer to loosen up curls — and then teased the roots to the, ahem, heavens. (via allure.com)


Kate Bosworth

With her fresh and flawless makeup, Kate Bosworth looked as though she stepped straight out of a painting. She opted for rosy cheeks and coordinating lipstick. Bosworth’s ethereal makeup left her skin glowing. (via theinsider.com)


Jennifer Lopez

J Lo did what J Lo does: slayed the red carpet in her signature cocktail of bronzer, lashes, and glossy lips. We love how she ditched the hair extensions for an impressively sleek lob. (via popsugar.com)


Amal Clooney

Sure, shimmery eyes, cherry-red lips, and a tousled pony are basically Clooney’s beauty M.O. at this point, but we’d be lying if we said she didn’t pull off the Charlotte Tilbury-designed look — again. (via allure.com)


Kate Upton

Kate paired her multicolored jeweled headpiece with a simple makeup look that included nude lipstick and bold brows. (via popsugar.com)


Kendall Jenner

Kendall paired her uber straight ponytail with a dark gray smoky eye. (Via popsugar.com)


Priyanka Chopra

“Fierce” is truly the only word that comes to mind when describing Chopra’s look — the gold-cascading headpiece, the deep-red lip, and the equally bold brows. (via allure.com)


Ariana Grande

A precise flick of eyeliner enhanced Ariana Grande’s makeup look. The inner corners of her eye were dusted with a shimmery shadow. She kept her lips natural with a light lipstick that matched her gigantic hair bow. (via theinsider.com)

4 Famous Mother-Daughter Duos and Their Beauty Tips

Mother’s Day is right around the corner which got us thinking about some famous Mother-Daughter duos. Check out these lovely ladies and a few beauty tips they swear by.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson

Always smiling and exuding joy, Goldie and Kate are clearly best friends and share an amazing relationship. Kate has followed in her mother’s famous footsteps and off the big screen, she also shares her mother’s love for life, as well as her healthy, active lifestyle.

Goldie & Kate’s Beauty Tips: When it comes to beauty, it’s apparent that great genes run in the family, but in a joint interview with Allure in 2013, Kate was asked what beaut secrets she learned from her Mom, and said “I think it’s more the stuff we eat. Like green juice—mom’s been drinking green juice forever. And taking teaspoons of olive oil. We love products and we have fun with products, but in terms of the real stuff that I’ve learned from mom, it’s her lifestyle. She was always healthy and active and drinking something green.”


Tina & Beyonce Knowles

Tina Knowles has always been known as a strong, confident woman – and clearly she passed that on to her daughter. Beyoncé and her mom have a strong bond and also share a love for beauty and cosmetics. Beyoncé grew up going to her mother’s salon in Houston, where she saw and learned a great deal. Fast forward to 2010, Tina collaborated with Beyoncé to open the Beyoncé Cosmetology Center at the Phoenix House in Brooklyn.

Tina’s Beauty Tip: Undergarments are the foundation to looking great. A good bra, Spanx, or some tummy-control panties to smooth out the lines are really important. (source: cosmopolitan.com)

Beyoncés Beauty Tip: “My best beauty advice came from my mother. She always says that outer beauty fades and inner beauty has a lasting effect. She also told me to wash my makeup off before going to bed. I don’t always, but I’m trying!” (Source: ogleschool.edu)


Michelle and Chynna Phillips

This pair not only share beautiful features, but also beautiful voices and success in two well known music groups. Michelle was in the group The Mamas & The Papas in the 60’s and Chynna was (and still is) with the popular 90’s group, Wilson Phillips. Both women have taken great pride in taking care of themselves and Chynna has watched and learned from her mother over the years.

Michelle’s Beauty Tip: “Wash your face with soap every morning, with a mild cleanser and rinse it with the same soapy water 30 times.” She also shared, ” I always use moisturizer. And I always use L’Oreal. And here’s the big reason why I use it. I use it because I can buy it at my supermarket! A moisturizer with a sun block, and at night you use a moisturizer without sun block.” (source: knotslanding.net)

Chynna’s Beauty Tip: In an interview with Carol Au Courant, Chynna shared her top 4 natural beauty tips: “Get 10 hours of sleep each night. Use a mask – any mask – once per week on your face.  Never pop a zit.  And stay away from too much sugar, dairy, white flour, and anything processed.”


Tracee Ellis Ross and Diana Ross

Where do we begin with this mother/daughter duo? While Diana is a tough act to follow, her daughter Tracee has paved her own way in the entertainment industry. This is another pair that clearly share amazing genes, however Tracee had a great teacher in her mother and learned how to care for herself.

Diana’s Beauty Tip: “My ‘quick makeups’ are jumbo eye pencils, really black black pencils, and mascara, maybe blusher and a light lip gloss, something nice for the day.” (source: vogue.com)

Tracee’s Beauty Tip: “I’m really big on hydration, you gotta drink the water so there’s hydration on the inside and the outside.” When it comes to moisturizing, Tracee has a unique method and recommends “spanking” your moisturizer into your face, by tapping lightly on your skin while the moisture sinks in.
