This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

The Smoky Eye King

February, 1, 2013

Professional makeup artist, Duncan Smith, is the king of explaining step-by-step how anyone can pull off a beautiful smoky eye with any product line. I’ve seen countless tutorials on this look that were too complicated—or so overdone that when I tried them, I resembled a raccoon. So Duncan and I teamed up again to give you these easy-to-follow tips.

    I’ve always had issues with my eye makeup looking great when I put in on but when I come home it is all over my eyes and looks nowhere close to how I started. 🙁 I’m definitely going to try out these tips on how to do my makeup so it lasts, especially the tip about the under eyeshadow!

    This is one of my favorite makeup looks and it always looks SO HORRIBLE when I try to do it! Thanks for all of these tips–I think I will be able to adapt some of these for my everyday makeup as well! Love it!
