Bombshell Silver Sunset Tutorial & Giveaway

Covergirl Bombshell silver sunset smoky eye tutorial

Hey guys and gals! Welcome to 2014! I’m so happy it’s an even-numbered year. Is anyone else like that? I just automatically assume odd-numbered years aren’t going to be as good as even-numbered ones. But then again, I’m a little superstitious, and a lot OCPD. Go figure. Let me know in the comments if I’m not alone.

Anyway, I’m going to share with you one of my favorite glam looks lately, and I’m calling it (for lack of a better phrase), my “Silver Sunset” look, and if you’re wondering about the sunset part, well–you’ll just have to watch the video to find out, won’t ya? It’s one of my smoky eye tricks!

Products Used

I’m obsessed with the new Bombshell range by CoverGirl. Especially the mascara. You may be a bit confused by this double-ended behemoth, but don’t be: it’s extraordinary. The brilliant two-step system combines extreme volume (step 1) with an intensifying, glossy top coat (step 2) for big, sexy bombshell lashes. It really gives you that “wet look” that has been so popular on the runways for several years. And man, even though I have lash extensions in, they made my lashes look 10 times larger even than they already were!  FYI: from January 5th through January 25th, all CoverGirl products are buy one get one 50% off at ULTA Beauty! This offer is available in-store and online. Click here to shop the collection.

I also love the shineshadows. They are so pigmented, shimmery, and once they set they don’t smudge or transfer. I like to top them with a sparkle topcoat (this is a personal favorite).
