Each colour has been expertly matched by Pat McGrath to make perfecting one of the catwalk’s most sought after looks easier than ever.
Max Factor creative design director Pat McGrath says “today is all about how real women wear make-up, so gone is the 10 step smoky eye. Max Factor smoky eye effect is the new beauty essential. It makes creating the smoky eye quick and easy and it’s available in a variety of shades to play up the latest eye trends and classic smoky looks.”
Designed with 2 simple steps in mind, the pen features different shaped heads;
step 1 is rounded so you can effortlessly apply the lighter shade across the full lid, step 2 is darker and tapered to define the eye shape. Velvety in texture, smoky eye effect blends easily to help you achieve a smouldering eye with total ease and without a make-up bag of brushes!
“Mastering a smoky eye has always been a skill of the make-up artist but Max Factor’s new smoky eye effect eyeshadow makes this sought after look utterly simplistic. I love the neutral shade colour palettes, they add natural definition to the eyes and the light shimmery texture is perfect for day-to-night transformation” says Ireland’s Max Factor make-up artist Lyndsey Cavanagh.
