Truth be told, I usually prefer the cat eye, but it’s a look I can only pull off when I’m feeling particularly steady-handed (read: zero alcohol consumption before applying makeup). Of course, it’s reassuring that I can always do smoky if I mess things up—I just correct everything with lots of smudging, et voilà! Smoky eyes.

At least I think so. It often occurs to me that I could probably improve my technique, which is why I’m excited about two new kits that have just hit stores:
