Dramatic eyes are my favorite makeup statement this fall. I love shimmery shadows and intense eyeliner. I always feel like I can get away with more makeup once the days start getting shorter — and making my eyes stand out is a step that I don’t like to skip.
LORAC Ooh La Lace Baked Shimmer & Matte Eye Shadow Palette ($36.00 USD — $114 Value ) Seduce with sexy, sultry, smoky eyes created with Baked Shimmer and Matte Eye Shadows in six smoldering colors. From the red carpet to between the sheets, this palette will give you big, beautiful bedroom eyes for all of your intimate moments.
This set contains:
– 6 x Eye Shadows in Lust (cream with shimmer), Smolder (matte gray), Risqué (matte black), Stunner (light bronze with shimmer), Knockout (bronze with shimmer), Racy (matte brown).
What I think: This versatility of this neutral kit is amazing. You can do a soft, daytime eye with the Stunner and Knockout, or do a smoky eye with the Smolder and Risque. I like to use the Lust all over my lid and line my eyes with Risque or Racy, then I can do a darker lip. Drama!

tarte smolderEYES Amazonian clay waterproof eye liner ($25.00 USD) –This waterproof liner creates smoldering, sexy eyes that won’t budge, letting you go from simple to sultry in an instant. Create a crisp liner look by gliding along the upper and lower lash line or use the built-in smudger to soften. For a sultry, smoky eye, use the liner as a shadow by applying a thicker line along upper lashes and blending toward the crease. No matter how you wear this versatile liner, Amazonian clay works to nourish lids, reduce surface oil, and improve overall texture for easy application and better wear. Once you apply, this liner will lock down to a completely waterproof finish for guaranteed longer wear. The rich, pure pigments are boosted by Amazonian clay for truer, bolder color with each application.
What I think: This is one of the most versatile eye pencils I own. The liner is thin enough for a great day look — or smoke it out with the spongy end or use it all over the eyelid for an evening out look. Colors available are Bronze, Brown, Charcoal, Fig, Golden Black, Navy, Olive and Plum. Available at Sephora, www.sephora.com, Ulta, www.ulta.com, QVC, and www.tarte.com.

What I think: This very black liner is glamour in pen! It’s easy to use and to make a great cat’s eye or rim the whole eye. Perfect for ladies who like drama! Available at Sephora, www.sephora.com, Ulta, www.ulta.com, QVC, and www.tarte.com.
