cgsmokyshadowblast.jpgSilky smooth and easy to apply, CoverGirl’s new Smoky Shadow Blast Eyeshadow makes creating the perfect smoky eye easy for those of us who aren’t professional makeup artists. With each tube containing two cream shadows of complimenting colors, we’re no longer bound to just the usual brown or black shades. Our tip if you have oily eyelids: Use a good shadow base or sheer powder eyeshadow to ensure these stay locked on for hours. Available in 6 shades. $8.49,

natalie-portman2.jpgNatalie Portman is a true fan of the smokey eye, and she always wears it well. At the premiere of her latest film, Brothers, Natalie was exquisite as usual— her makeup was flawless! We can’t help but admire her eye makeup, since this is the time of year we find ourselves rockin’ different variations of the classic look.

To create a similar look at home, we suggest you try Maybelline’s new Stylish Smokes eyeshadow quad in Natural Smokes. This quad along with the other 3 in the collection has every shadow you’ll need to give your peepers the perfect smokey eye. Add some eyeliner and your favorite mascara and you’re set to hit the town looking bold and beautiful.

Beyonce_Billboard_Awards.jpgBeyonce was honored last week as ‘Woman of the Year’ at Billboard’s Women in Music awards. We were in awe of her glowing skin and overall makeup look, but it was her stand-out eyeshadow that we loved most. Makeup artist Jackie Gomez explains: “I loved the color of her dress so much so I wanted to mirror the effect that it had against her skin- the Cleo Duo Eyeshadow was perfect.”

We think so, too.
