Winter Makeup – Easy Smoky Eye & Red Lip Tutorial with Smashbox Cosmetics

By KristySamone — January 30, 2015

Happy Friday Loves!  Woohoo! I didn’t make an announcement on this blog, but now it’s time. I’m PREGGERS! YUP! At 20 weeks,  I’m at the half-way mark. It’s been shocking (lol) and exciting news! My entire world is about to change and I can’t wait. Hubby Ralph is on cloud 9. We have a little boy cooking in the oven – lol! Please look out for upcoming maternity style posts and videos. I’m working on those now, but in the meantime please click on my NEW VIDEO! I’m already a busy girl, but I know when little “Jack” arrives in June – I’ll be busier than ever. I asked stellar makeup artist Antwan Jones to show me simple tips for a QUICK (light) smoky eye and red lip. Antwan has “beat the face” of everyone from Aretha Franklin to Kerry Washington to Steven Madden – ha – so I felt truly honored.  The dark smoky eye is all the rage, but I requested he demonstrate a lighter/warmer version of the sultry style. This will be perfect for day to night. We used Smashbox Cosmetics and ONE brush – wow!  You read correctly – ONE BRUSH! Yes, this is a great tutorial for busy OR lazy gals! The smoky eye and classic red lip are great for winter well into spring.  OH – and be on watch, I’m announcing a MAJOR giveaway contest with Smashbox Cosmetics. You guys deserve it! My blog will be 4 this year – thanks for hanging in with me!!! Have a beautiful weekend!

    Well, that's quite the announcement! Congratulations! I couldn't be happier for you and hubby. Can't wait to hear more on the blog. :) Now, you caught me at "one brush," because I hardly ever wear eye shadow because I am seriously challenged!! Great video. I'm gonna share, share, share, because I know I am not alone in this! Have a great weekend!
