You know those times I say, "If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me about . . ." well, I really would be a rich little lady if I was talking about the number of times I'd been asked how to create the PERFECT smoky eye. It's the most classic of classic makeup looks, yet so many people find it hard to create. Normally I rattle off advice about starting with a brown shadow under the eye and rimming your eyes with kohl first but now that kinda seems like a lot of work compared to this: COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast ($17.95). It's everything you need in one to create a smokin' smoky eye — including brushes. Well kind of. Let me explain. You don't really need any tools, because both ends are shaped to perfection. The base end is round to cover your whole lid, and the liner end features a more precise edge so that you can line the eye and add definition in the crease. It's literally a two-step process until you look like Drew.
COVERGIRL Smoky ShadowBlast will be available in Onyx Smoke, Limited Edition Purple Plume and Limited Edition Tempest Blue from November. Stockists: 1800 181 040.
