Who wouldn’t want to start their week with some new makeup? Especially with a new smoky eye palette housed in a beautiful turquoise case! I am talking about the Carmindy & Co. MesmerEyes Smokey Eye Kit — which is part of the new beauty line created by makeup artist Carmindy, who is best known for creating wearable, everyday looks on the show What Not To Wear.
The kit comes with the Carmindy & Co. Epic Eyeshadow Quad (which has 3 eyeshadows, a cream eyeliner and a dual-sided brush), Bright Eyes Concealer and Elevate Mascara. I was pleasantly surprised by this kit and I was able to create the PERFECT smoky eye.
The one thing you want as a makeup artist is the eyeshadow to make your job easy; there is nothing worse than an eyeshadow that doesn’t blend. I felt that these shadows blended effortlessly to create the look I was going for. I was able to create my smoky eye in 15-minutes — that is how easy these shadows are to use.
After I applied my eyeshadow, I lined my eyes. I felt the eyeliner dried a little wet, so I set the liner with a black shadow. I used the brushes provided in the quad; the eyeliner brush gave me an elongated line to accentuate my peepers.
Moving on to the Carmindy & Co. Elevate Mascara. It coated my lashes and held my curl in place. I like a curled wand because I feel that it mimics the shape of the eye.
TIP: I use a handheld mirror to apply my makeup, because I can hold it below my eye level and apply the mascara as close to the lash line as possible.
Last but not least, the Carmindy & Co. Bright Eyes Concealer. The concealer was super-creamy and emollient. I tapped it into my skin, making sure not to stretch the skin under my eye. It provided medium coverage but it also felt like nothing was sitting on my skin. My under eye area looked brighter, as if I had 12-hours of sleep! This line gets two thumbs up from me!
Carmindy & Co. is now available on HSN and HSN.com.
