Perfecting the traditional smokey eye is something every girl should have in their beauty arsenal, but it can take years of practice. We live a life that revolves around neutrals, so whether you balance out your brights with a softer tone or you simply like to stick to the basics, a neutral staple is just that – a staple. This season, this beauty staple has been upgraded to full-on look. Clean, fresh faces dominated the runway in February, emphasizing natural features and the subtle accentuation of cheeks, brows, eyes and lips. Nude blushes replaced bronzers, brown mascara dominated black, while earth tones held center stage for lips and eyes.
In an effort to nail this coveted look, we recruited the help of makeup artist Andie Markoe-Bryne and the new Simply Vera Vera Wang Cosmetics Collection — available exclusively at Kohl’s stores nationwide and Kohls.com — to learn the best way to layer on long-lasting shades, pull off a neutral smokey eye, and perfect a flawless complexion to perfect the look. The new collection marks Vera Wang’s first venture into beauty and is designed to enhance a woman’s natural features.
“A boldly defined eye is one of my favorite looks,” says Wang. “Who has time for touch-ups? Modern women need eye makeup that lasts.”
