Smoky eyes — infinitely sexy, alluringly mysterious, and a total pain in the you-know-what to create. But they don't have to be! Our beauty BFF, the lovely Bethany Brill, has a Mensa-worthy tip for mastering this notoriously tricky beauty technique. Best of all, it doesn't involve being ambidextrous or holding an advanced degree in eyeshadow-ology.
All you need are two products: A foundation primer and a dark eyeshadow. No, seriously, that's it. Apply this duo with your fingers, blend it out with a fluffy brush, slap on some mascara, and you are good to go. Check the video to get the scoop on Bethany's awesome trick, and get ready to cut your get-gorgeous time in half.
