Health & Beauty: In a detailed video, Smashbox National Artist Hank Hoffman takes the latest runway looks into reality.
The High Voltage Eyes video shows women exactly how to use the season's bright bold colors in real life. Noting that many have become tired "smoky eyes" being the only option for evening make-up, expert make-up artist Hoffman gives you an option.
High Voltage Eyes use a wearable shade of brightly hued orange "Torch" and mixes it up with a deep shade to make it wearable for real life.
A detailed list of step-by-step instructions accompanies the video, so that you can read the names of the shades of make-up Hoffman uses, as well as the applicators. The video is especially useful if you don't know your crease from your corner, because Hoffman says the name as he applies make-up the area. It also gives you more specific directions on how to hold your brush so that you get the correct angle for the part of the eye you are working on.
To help you complete the look in high fashion, after doing the eyes, Hoffman moves on to the cheeks and face, emphasizing that the cheeks should be more natural so as not to clash with the bright colors of the eyes and lips.
For the High Voltage Eyes look, Hoffman uses Smashbox tools and make-up in the following shades:
On the Eyes:
Eyeshadow in Torch $16
Crease Eye Brush #10 $28

The detailed direction of the how-to video makes even a novice seem like a professional when it comes to trying out the season's new make-up.
