Do you want daring, sexy eyes that will make every man swoon? It is possible. With lashes and a bold eyeliner that produces a smoky eye effect, you can get the desired Kim Kardashian look.
First, you should purchase some Ardell lashes and cut them in half so you can double the number of lashes per box. After cutting one in half, place it on the edge of your eyelash. Use a toothpick or a q-tip to apply some clear Ardell lash glue to the lash, and make sure you use a pair of tweezers to apply the lash to your eyelash. Repeat the prior steps for the second lash.

Next, gently wash your eye area with a soft soap to avoid tearing your real eyelashes. Wait a few minutes for the lash glue to settle and then apply your eye make up. When you finish, your eyes will instantly appear more natural and fuller.
When you are ready to apply the rest of your eye makeup, make sure you hair is in place and wear a button up shirt to avoid wiping off part of your makeup as you change. Next, apply some eye makeup primer to ensure nothing will smear your makeup. Your makeup will last for hours without the need to re-apply it.
I never had faith in a primer but this stuff really works. I use it at 6 am and it never fails to disappoint, even when I decide to go directly from work to dinner without going home first. The primer intensifies the colors of eye makeup and obviously helps keep the makeup on.

Next, make sure you have a smudgy, creamy eyeliner. If you want to wear fall colors, then try this great deal from Sephora. Sephora offers three Lorac shimmery pencils for $16. I recommend the black one for that price. I love the shimmers because they do not overwhelm the dark, smoky colors and it will not look cheap. Personally, I love the kit and I think the three colors are an excellent choice for fall and winter.
