Thank god for effortless beauty products like the new Pixi Softly Smoky Crayon. For the smoked out eye n00bs this waterproof eye crayon makes smoky eyes a snap!
Take it from me I’m not exactly the killer queen of smudging but easy to use pencils like this make the job a snap!
The Pixi Softly Smoky Crayon ($18) is a newly launched dual sided eye pencil available in three shade selections for Fall 2013. Oily lids take note this pencil is bulletproof as once it sets it isn’t going anywhere so you’ll have a long wearing eye look until you decide to take it off.
Supposedly the formula even contains caffeine to give an energizing effect (what? I need me some energy today) and chamomile to sooth. The pigment rich pencil has a dual side that includes a chubbier tipped pencil on one side and a slimmer more precise one on the other. Pearl powder gives the pencils a lovely golden hue. The pencil isn’t super creamy and has more of a dense texture which is why it smudges out so easily and gives eyes that sultry look with minimal application know how. I like using it on a freshly prepped lid with a nude, natural shade of eyeshadow like Bobbi Brown Ivory or Nude Beach. Any nude beige shade is perfect just make sure it isn’t too pigmented as it’ll take away from the smudging effect you’ll achieve using this pencil. Line the top of your lash line with the chubbier side of the pencil, make the line thick but not too thick. Now take a q-tip or a pointed brush of some sort and rub it gently over that line smudging it out. Use the smaller more precise point on the opposite end of the pencil to line your lower lash and water line.
Softly focused smudged out eyes!
Simple, easy, and super pretty!
