Revlon + Sterling Style: Smoky Eye


Videography: Ashley Batz 

I'm excited to share with you my first video in partnership with  Revlon®. We've teamed up to bring you a series of mini videos throughout the year! Our first video is all about achieving an easy and natural smoky eye. 

Since I'm no pro when it comes to makeup, I like products that are easy to use. I also like to feel natural and not overdone.  The Revlon® ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow palette is super easy to use and lays the colors out in steps. To achieve my look start with the  Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener. Next apply the colors from the palette step by step as shown on the back of the product. Complete the look with a few coats of Revlon 3D Volume Mascara. What's great is you can rock this look at work and also be ready for dinner and drinks after.

(FYI: Revlon spells smokey 'smoky')

Would LOVE to try out the Revlon smokey eye inspired by your video while taking a much needed girls trip to Vegas at the end of this month! The subtle grey and pink hues would look great for a spring evening outing. x

I like to wear a smoky eye to a party or out to get drinks! I love using eye liner to smudge into a lighter eyeshadow, it stays longer that way! :)

Great video! I love Revlon's products but I haven't tried the Smoky look yet. I'm turning 30 soon and my husband is taking me away for a couple of days without our son for the first time since he was born (a year and a half ago). I would wear the Smoky eye for my birthday and birthday trip! meganslick at gmail dot com. Thank you for the great give-away and a chance to win!

Julie Khuu said...

So cool! You're such a natural! I love to rock the smokey eye for day...in softer shades than the traditional black/brown combos...in charcoal with a hint of color looks great in the sun!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Peace. Love. LOL!

Love the video!

I like to do a smoky eye with more neutral colors for day, and a funky one with more dramatic colors out for date night or going out with my girlfriends.

So glad you are choosing a wonderful company like Revlon, that doesn't test or condone any animal cruelty:)

I kind of am in the minority here, but I like a casual smokey eye just for everyday wear, even to school.

leyla. said...

i'm no ace when it comes to make up and this seems pretty doable, even for me. on a day to day basis i don't wear a lot of make up. just the basics. the smoky eye is exclusively for special occasions :) i wear glasses [and actually love to wear them], so sometimes my eyes get lost behind the frame and the lenses. the smoky eye helps to highlight them to be more noticeable.

enjoy your weekend!

that video was short and sweet! loved every bit of it!!

I would wear the smoky eye to my friend's beach wedding that is coming up in June! It's going to be right on the sand, and went the sun is setting, so the smokey eye colors will be gorgeous in the sunlight...and perfect for the reception that follows!

I think it's great you have the opportunity to partner with such a well-know brand- congrats! I have to say, though, that this really is icing on the cake of your consistant copying of Cupcakes and Cashmere. I think you are a beautiful girl and clearly have the brains to back up a successful business, I just wish you'd show a bit more authenticity, I think you could be really successful.

Dian said...

I will wear smoky eyes to night going out. It is a great sexy looks for night.

Congratulations on the partnership! I'd wear the smoky eye look when I go out with my favorite girls for my bachelorette party in Vegas in a few months :)

This is such a great partnership!! Congratulations Taylor!! I love a smoky eye for a girls night out, but i'm not very good at creating a smoky eye! I'd love to try these products out!

I like to do a smoky eye whenever I'm feeling like being more glamorous. Sometimes everyday, sometimes for a special occasion :)

Maggie said...

Being a full-time grad student, I don't get to go out very often anymore. To keep myself from feeling down about this, I have started incorporating more fun/fancy makeup and hairstyles into my daily routine (I tone it down for a day appropriate look). This smokey eye would look lovely for just a regular school day.

Date night out or even a night out with the girls.

Thanks so much for the tutorial and for the giveaway.

I rarely do the smoky eye, I've done it a couple of times for parties, but mostly it intimidates me. But maybe now, with the tutorial, I'll give it another shot. :)

Love Revlon! Such a classic beauty brand... Great pairing :)

I wear the smoky eye with a neutral lip and messy hair for a night out on the town!

Sydney said...

I love your video. I am not make up expert either and need all the help I can get! I usually wear a smoky eye out on dates or if I'm doing drinks with the girls - but then smoky turns into purples, and pinks for a fun look.

Lisa Griffin said...

ohhh congrats on a cool partnership! i wear the smokey pretty much every night out haha

Julie Faires said...

I smudge my liner every day to keep from having a too perfect look (I like it to look like I didnt just put it on, plus the smudge makes my lashes look thicker). But when I really want to glam-it-up I smudge a thicker line with a dark color all around my eye. I love how it makes my green eyes pop against my dark hair!

Allyson [Mimosas in the Morning] said...

Such a great video! I love to wear a smoky eye whenever I go out on the town at night. Whether it be with my boyfriend or friends, the smoky eye is always a fun addition to any outfit.

I wore a smoky eye this past Saturday night to a black-tie event with my husband. He said "Your eyes look great -- you should do that more often!" I think he's right! :o)

I am horrible with eye make-up and pretty much just go to mascara, but this would be great!!!!! that was soooo easy.

Thanks for the great giveaway :)

taylo292 said...

Some people think that smokey eyes should be reserved for night time but I must beg to differ! Smokey eyes can be worn during the day if done correctly... maybe using browns or light greys instead of stark/harsh blacks! But I also feel that smokey eyes are perfect for a night out because its like instant glam... again when done correctly! Love it!
