Patchology – FlashPatch Eye Gels
“My team and I like to start out with a good foundation! These eye masks reduce puffiness, hydrate and brighten eyes to create the best canvas, and they’re SO easy to use. Simply place under your eyes and see results instantly!”

Eye Shadow
By Terry – Ombre Blackstar
“You don’t even need a primer when you use this product, and there are three ways to cocktail Ombre Blackstar into your makeup wardrobe! You can wear it as a liner, build the product for day and night looks, or draw on your eyelids and smudge for an eye shadow effect.”

Cle de Peau Beaute – Eye Color Quad (Refill)
"Creating a smokey eye is all about technique. The look can be crafted using any color palette. After Ombre Blackstar, I use this quad of creamy shadows for a seamless color story. My favorite for fall is the warm browns and bronze shades in 305, and for winter, 306 lends a cool selection of icy blues, and rose quartz.”


Artis Brushes – Brush Cleaning Pad & Cleansing Foam
“Most people don’t realize how important it is to clean your brushes! When creating a smokey eye, you’re blending and typically using multiple colors. To get a polished look, cleaning your brushes is a must. The Artis Cleansing Pad, and Cleansing Foam are user friendly, eco-friendly and easily stored! Simply use the brush cleaner on the cleansing pad and stroke to clean.”
