Christmas is fast approaching Glossies, and today we’re bringing you your penultimate makeup product (get excited, we’ll be ending on a bang!). Today you will have unwrapped a cruelty-free eyeshadow stick by Eyeko in an intense, smokey and shimmery hue.

Eyeko Eyeshadow Stick

Nestled behind door number 23 of your GLOSSYBOX ‘Advent Calendar’ is a fabulous Fat Eye Stick in the shimmery Satin shade. We hope you love it as much as the Fat Liquid Eyeliner from our April box!

The twist up pencil makes this eye stick ideal for quick and easy application. You can create an intense and dramatic eye in minutes, perfect for turning your subtle day makeup into a glamorous evening look on-the-go.

Tutorial: Your Shimmering Smokey Eye

Inspired by the on-trend smudged look, our in-house makeup artist Lucinka has created an autumnal smokey eye for you to try at home.

Step One

To help your makeup last all night, using a good primer is a must. By taking out natural oils and creating a smooth base, a primer will prevent your colour from fading or creasing. Lucinka’s favourite primer has long been the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. It’s a makeup bag must-have!

Step Two

Now that you’ve got an even base to work off, apply the eyeshadow stick along the upper lash line and smudge it out into the creases of your eye using an eyeshadow brush. We just love this intense shimmering taupe colour!

Step Three

For a dramatic eye look, it’s essential that you apply a touch of colour under your eyes. It’ll add definition and really make your eyes pop. Simply glide the eyeshadow stick along the lower lash line and blend the colour in the outer corner of your eye.

Step Four

Finish off the look with lashings of mascara.

Lucinka’s go-to is the False Lash Architect Waterproof Mascara by L’Oréal Paris. It’s perfect for longer and fuller looking lashes that last all night. Of course, you can also use your Greater Than Mascara!
