Smokey eyes for dummies

I love applying makeup – the ritual of sitting in front of the mirror and preparing for the day ahead gives me a moment to collect my (often scattered ) thoughts and gives me a tranquil breathing space. However, I’m rather hamfisted and lack the dexterous hands of a professional. This look is an idiot-proof smokey eye – you can pretty much smoosh the cream products on with impunity, as long as it’s all blended properly.

In this video you get a rather unfortunate view up my nose for most of it’s duration. Also I expose my embarrassing, pouty  ‘mirror face’ which I never pull other than when I’m doing my makeup. Despite my rather clumsy technique, I hope you find this video useful. I think it demonstrates that any dullard can do a passable job.
