Have you ever watched those tutorials on Instagram or seen a gorgeous smoky eye look and wondered, how exactly do they do that? How do they make it look so easy? Well, thanks to Rodial’s Global Educator Lauren, she gave us her top tips to achieve that gorgeous, sultry smoky eye in 3 simple steps. All you need is the Smokey Eye Pencil, featured in our March #FemaleFounders Beauty Box (and maybe a brush), but yes, it’s that easy.This specific product was created in 2014 by Rodial founder Maria Hatzistefanis, after she decided to create a capsule make-up collection alongside their high-performance skincare.
