Eye Spy & The Nail Files

This week's look...

I was going for a purple-ish smokey eye that was work-appropriate. Sometimes, a color looks far more dramatic and bright in the container than it does on your eyes.

A tip: When using under-eye concealer, instead of putting it in a half-moon shape under your eyes, try putting it in a wedge shape, where one side runs parallel to your nose, the back of it is under your eye, and the other side angles from the outside of your under-eye to the nose-parallel line. It doesn't have to take up half your face, just have the point be somewhere around your cheekbone. This draws the eye downward, minimizing the under-eye bags and darkness without having to pile on more makeup.

Ulta's Peach Parfait, which I was told is a very IN shade this year. 
I disbelieve.
