Did you know that Jillian Dempsey, wife of actor Patrick Dempsey, is a makeup artist? Well now you do!
Jillian has been working with Avon as their Global Creative Color Director and Celebrity Makeup Artist and has a couple new products out.
The Professional Eye Smokifier is a powdered eyeliner that comes in a tube with a soft sponge-tipped applicator.
It currently comes in four colors including Very Black, Khaki, Bronze and Blue Grey.
I for one like the idea behind this because you don’t have to worry about eyeliner perfection as you would for a liquid or gel liner. This is meant to give you a smokey, non-precise line rather than something more harsh. Hence it’s easier to use and get the hang of!
Very Black is a fairly deep black but it’s also got some fun silver sparkle in it. It feels very soft and obviously powdery, and is also pretty darn pigmented.
Creating a look with this kind of product might be pretty easy, but not exactly mess-free.
Because it’s a very loose powder there is definitely some fall-out so you might want to do your eyes first, then your face. Also tapping the wand off before you put it near your eye can help.
I have now seen a few of these from various brands and think we’ll probably see more. It’s an easy way to get a smokey look and I really like the black mixed in with the silver in this one. You can also wear this as a shadow if you wish, so you have options!
