Lock, Stock, and Smokin' Fashion....

Most of us have been inspired by our favorite celebrities red carpet smokey eyes. We want that same sultry sex appeal, but not everyone can have a team of makeup artists to work their magic. This is a list of varying degrees of drama for those who want a little or A LOT of smoke to their look. Whether it be a dark polish to your nails, glitter or a little gun powder eye liner, everyone will find something on this list to get their fix.

1. Kat Von D for Sephora- "Rock 'n Roll Eye Shadow Duo in Sixxshooter" $20

If you're a smoky eye addict like I am, then you will absolutely adore this compact! Long lasting, and it goes on subtle so you have
control to build up the drama that you'd like.

2. Sephora by O.P.I- "Matte Nail Color inMetrochic" $9

I can't lie to you, the matte finish threw me off at first. This is definitely not for the faint of heart, only made for those serious trendsetters out there. But it will really grow on you! Promise. You can even add gloss to the nail base or the tip for a unique twist on the classic french manicure.

You've got to love charcoal liners. Even worn only accompanied by mascara it is incredibly sexy! Or grab some shadows and mix 'n match with this replacing the classic blacks and browns that sometimes become tired.


This is for those girls who want to try the smoky effect, but aren't totally committed to the sometimes high drama it entails. It's creamy, and adds a gorgeous smoked purple haze to your eyes.

5. Make Up For Ever -"Glitters in Silver 2" $13

Alright you attention seekers, you know who you are. Get creative! Place a little dab of this anywhere you'd like for a fearless pop of sparkle. Tip: Coat your lids with a small amount of "M.A.C: Gloss Creme Brilliance" to allow the glitter to adhere easier, more evenly and stay put!

6. M.A.C - "Zoom Lash in Zoom Black" $13

This is one of the most amazing mascara's on the market, I swear it. It provides amazing length, thickness and doesn't leave your lashes stiff or clumped. But you only need a small amount! A little goes a long way. You can also sweep it on after using your favorite mascara for an added punch!

7. M.A.C. - "Eye Kohl in Smolder" $14.50

Last but not least, for those who are loyal to their black eyeliner it's a smoky eye STAPLE. It's thick, goes on smoothly and has
incredibly rich pigment.

Also, if you want to master you're own smoldering look study Troy Jensen, Mario Dedivanovic, and Stephen Moleski. Best known for their works on Jennifer Lopez, The Kardashians, Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls, Megan Fox and many other undeniably gorgeous women.
