Get The Look Of Smoky Eyes From Estée Lauder

Don’t you just love smoky eyes. How can you not? I mean they are just smokin’ hot. And, even better, they are a fun, festive look for all those holiday parties and New Year’s celebrations.

For us 40ish something’s, smoky eyes can never go out of style. If you want to create this smoldering look, just don’t put powder along the eye, as you don’t want anything settling into lines in those areas. Remember, you don’t have to use dark colors to make a statement. Silvers and grays work magic on the eyes as well.

If you are looking for something a little more demure and classic like Natalie Portman’s flawless look at the Brothers premiere than the gothic style of the Queen of Smoky Eyes Avril Lavigne, you should head right over to the Estée Lauder counter and check out their latest Blacker Than Black collection.

Now beautifully bold, dramatic eyes are just a wave of the wand away. Don’t be shy, make your eyes the center of attention. Estée Lauder’s new Blacker Than Black eye collection features SIX of the makeup giant's most popular mascara formulas, each in a richer, more concentrated, more dramatic shade for eyes that appear bigger, bolder, more dramatic.

Estée Lauder's new collection of rich, intensely saturated black mascaras help create bold, dramatic eyes.

That’s a real treat for those of you who are like me and always searching for that perfect mascara.

Because the mascara is so concentrated, it creates a contrast that defines and frames the eyes for a look that is at once highly sophisticated and utterly alluring. And, whether your look calls for lashes that are lengthened, defined, volumized, lifted and curved, you can achieve the look you want as each of these luxe mascaras offer the same unique benefits as their original formulas, but now with the deepest, intense jet black effect.

To achieve the intense jet black color, the scientists at EL maximized color intensity and opacity using select Carbon Black and Black Iron Oxides and put the pigment through an ultrasonic process. The result is pure, dramatic and intense.

The mascara are here only for a limited time, but I’m placing my bets that the need for blacker than black mascara will encourage the powers that be at EL to keep this fierce collection around longer than the glue that holds your false lashes.

You can complete the look with the Blacker Than Black collection’s new Signature Eyeshadow Quad in four sultry, beautifully smoky shades that add even more to the bold look. The eyeshadow features a silky, microfine powder that won’t crease, gliding smoothly onto lids and blending seamlessly for a flawless look. In addition, try out the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in an intense black shade that adds definition and perfectly complements the mascara’s rich black hue.

Estée Lauder's new eyeshadow quad is perfect for sultry, smoky accents on your eyes.

Classic beauty Natalie Portman's smoky eyes and nude lips are absolutely flawless at the Brothers' premiere...

...but songstress Avril Lavigne's famous or infamous dark, smoky eyes make her look like she's been punched in the face.

So go ahead, celebrate the holiday season and light up the night with your smoky eyes. You’ll might even see yourself being admired by the roving eyes of others when rocking out this sexy look.


  1. Will you come north to show me how to put makeup on properly? I've never been very good at it...

  2. I'm in for the Natalie Portman look. Well....an older version.

  3. I agree with Anonymous...I'll go for the Natalie look...I just need someone to show me how to use makeup...

  4. Loving your blog! Happy knitting!

  5. Love the smokey eye. The last time I tried it, I was so tentative with the shadow that you could barely tell I was wearing any in photos!

  6. I usually wind up skipping the smokey eye in favor of the red lips instead. But once in a while...for a special event....
