I met makeup artist Brigitte Caille through the #silversisters network on Instagram, and quickly invited her onto the show to get her valuable tips on easy makeup when you’re 50-ish. And I’m so glad I did because I finally know how to create a smokey eye look in less than 5 minutes!

To be honest I never really had the confidence to try a smokey eye before. In fact I’m so intimidated by eye makeup in general that I had resigned myself to using only mascara. I just didn’t feel I had the time or energy to experiment, especially when I was sure it would end in me washing my face and going back to the mascara-only look.

If you feel the same way, I promise you’ll change your mind after checking out Brigitte’s tips. Please let me know if you try it, I’d love to hear how it goes!

PS if you’d rather read the steps than watch, I got you.
