Dior’s guide to your perfect smokey eye!

I’ve told you before about my total lack of skill when it comes to the delicate art of applying makeup, about my confidence in Dior products and about the utter awe and admiration I feel for Yadim, the French house’s makeup artist.

Well, these previous days, all worked up over festive preparations – to be read dresses and, fatally, makeup – I once more put into motion the virtuous circle. I first told myself: Cheer up, just anyone can do a smokey eye! But looking at the wonderful yet dangerous in my hands deep noir podium of the Diorshow Art Pen I had to concede: Everyone but me. So I ran for advice and comfort to what and who it is that I always run to: my  basic Dior solutions and to Yadim’s modern classic smokey eye tutorial.

This is how I’ve once more started training my hand do the firm and bold strokes that make a podium look. And, yes, it’s also great that I still have a few days to practice. But I’m just sure you’ll have it down spectacular from your very first go!

PS: I used a different shade of lipstick, just because I have a little obsession for red, but if you’d rather  have the lighter version of the makeup, then try the Grège color. 🙂
