After Halloween, there seems to be this full throttle push into the holidays. If we were able to put it on hold until life felt a little more balanced I’m sure we would. Instead, we have to ride out this crazy wave!

It can get a little hectic with the errands and parties (so many parties!) but think of it as a chance to dress up and glam out. And being the makeup fanatic I am, I'm going all out until January 2nd hits. The key to maintaining your sanity and while looking flawless is conquering a smoky neutral eye. Trust me, it's a lot easier to do than it sounds and the transitional look can take you from work to play.

As a contact lens user with a bad case of dry eyes, I always prep my eyes with Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ Multi-Symptom. It moisturizes my eyes and gets rid of redness associated with wearing lenses and slight makeup irritation. Lucky for us in the states, the preservative free eye drops come in a multi-dose bottle and make it easier to use. It’ll also make your eyes look brighter which is always a nice plus!

If you're anything like me, I highly recommend adding these eye drops into your beauty routine so the focus can be kept on your makeup and clear eyes (pun intended).

Now for the full-on tutorial

Prep your eyes with Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™


Apply an eyeshadow base over your entire lid and above the crease, I’m using a shimmery nude color


Apply the next eyeshadow, I’m using a light copper shade to shade the lid under the crease and blending


Blend a darker eyeshadow into the crease of your eyelid, I’m using a light brown color


Now blend until obvious harsh lines from your eyeshadow are gone


For a little more ‘tude, I love lining my top lash line with a shimmery dark brown eyeshadow and relining it with a black or dark brown eyeliner

Don't forget to fill in your browns and apply your favorite mascara to frame your face


As for the rest of your face, finish up with CC cream, a peach-like blush, and a pale pink nude lip color. Hopefully, the pictures helped tremendously, but if you rather see a video tutorial next time – let me know!

Keep in mind that Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ provides up to 12 hours of soothing relief so depending on how long your days go during the holiday season it may be beneficial to carry a spare in your purse.
And being the thrifty shopper I recently turned into I figured I share the best place with the best deals. I found Clear Eyes® Pure Relief™ line at my local Target which was conveniently located near my favorite drugstore makeup brands. It’s like they knew! Combine Target’s Cartwheel offer (25% off) with this $3 manufacturer coupon on your next purchase.
