Smoky Eyes Made Easy

Sometimes classics are the how-tos that stump me the most. Red lips, simple cat eyes, and smoky eyes are some of the tried and true beauty looks that have stuck around as trends, like a little black dress. Recently, I found the best compact that not only has every color you'll need to create a range of smoky eyes–from a dramatic glam to a more natural subtle style–but a little surprise inside that makes achieving it foolproof.

To buy: $37,


There are a couple smoky eye kits on the market, but this one is my absolute favorite. The shades are build on each other, making it easy customize your look. Plus, the hues complement a range of skin tones. But the best part of the compact is what comes folded up in the box: this step-by-step visual.
