Known for their amazing brow pencils, start off the look by defining your eyebrows with the Hard Formula Seal Brown 02 brow pencil in light, hairlike strokes! This pencil is unlike any you will have ever used as it only releases its colour pigment when it gets in contact with the oils in your brow hairs! Its unique angled shape will guarantee you full, bushy brows every time!


For the star of the show, take the light blue shade of the collection’s Indigo Eye and Cheek Palette and apply it all over the lids for a wash of colour. Next, take the royal blue shade and brush it on your eye’s crease, focusing on the outer ‘V’ of your eye. For extra definition, blend a little of the gray color on the outer edge for a more elongated look. Take the white shimmery shade and dust on the inner corners of your eyes for that wide awake look!

For a smokier, grungey look, take the Play & Remix Drawing Pencil in M Indigo and apply it all over you lower lashline. Finish off the eyes with coats and coats of the Petal Lash Mascara and you have a party-ready, gorgeous blue smokey eye!


Since the eye is so bold, we wouldn’t want the blush to overpower anything. So just take the peachy blush shade in the Indigo Eye and Cheek Palette and lightly dust it on the apples of your cheeks for a natural, glowy flush!


And for the lips, instead of going for a classic nude (which is a staple when it comes to smokey eyes), apply a very light wash of the Laque Sparkler in Fleur Shine for a beautiful tinted, glossy pink lip! Because it’s so light, it won’t look like it’s contradicting the eyeshadow. If you feel that your lip colour is still too opaque or pink, just blot your lips and pat them with your finger tips after to really let the colour sink in and let it mesh with your lips’ natural hue!
