If you are looking to create the perfect smokey eye for the holidays, look no further! Studio Gear has created just that, a smokey eye palette which consists of four complimentary eye shadow colors and a matching blush. Shades that are all perfect for that dramatic look this holiday season. Studio Gear Cosmetics offers a variety of cosmetic products as well as skin care products but their Studio Gear Professional Brush Collection is the core of their line. Studio Gear was kind enough to send me a sample of their fabulous holiday smokey eye palette to try out.
Studio Gear's smokey eye palette is not only perfect for that "night out" dramatic look but can also be used to create a more subtle daytime look that will be sure to turn heads. The palette comes in a cardboard sleeve that is placed in a protective slip which I pictured above, super cute right!?! The holiday smokey eye palette also provides a step by step instruction set to help you create a smokey eye perfect for you.
I used the holiday smokey eye palette to create a more subtle smokey eye look. I opted to use the darkest shade, Coal, in the crease and outer corner of my lid blending well to create a steel look. This shade is true to color and can be applied darker to create a more dramatic look. I used Frost, the lightest shade, on my entire eyelid as a base for the look. This shade is very subtle but if applied multiple times you can achieve the same color as it appears in the palette. Platinum is a fabulous shade of silver, which I applied in the center of my eyelid as well as in the outer corner before applying Coal. The gold shade was unexpected but just the finishing touch I needed to complete the look. I used Glimmer to highlight my brow and swept it above the crease to the brow bone. I was very pleased with the finished look and was absolutely in love with the shimmery end result, a makeup look I particularly love for the holidays. The pink cheek shade, Snowy Glow, balanced out the look perfectly. When I have a more dramatic eye, I always make sure my cheeks and lips are just the opposite and I stick to more subtle shades in the pink family.
My favorite thing about Studio Gears Holiday Smokey Eye palette is that you can create a variety of looks by using different blending techniques and playing around with the different shades. It is a great product all around and would make a perfect gift this holiday season! You can't beat the price either, only $25 USD.
