Bright and Smoky Eyes for Back-to-School!

Line your upper lash line and lower water line with a waterproof black liner. My favorite for this is Urban Decay eyeliner in Zero. Once it’s there, it’s not going anywhere until I deliberately wash it off. Before it sets completely, smudge a little more Sexpresso over it on the outer edge to help blend it into the eyeshadow. This softens the whole look and makes it extra smoky.
