Geeky Girl Christmas Special: Cranberry Smoky Eyes

Paint Pot

Skip foundation and go straight to the eyes. That way, if we make a mess with these dark colors, we can clean it up later. Smudge some of that paint pot on your lids and blend out the edges. It might look a bit scary at first, but don’t fret. This is just a base, so it doesn’t need to be absolutely perfect.  Just make sure the pigment it is built up most on the lid and thinned out in the crease.
