Choose a shade of CG Smokys Shadow Blast  Tip: This is a very creamy product so it may not be the best choice for those with oily skin. The colours are frosted, so you may want still a black liner too. Apply liquid or pencil liner under the Smokey Shadow Blast, if you decide to use it.

Style it like Drew Barrymore

 Drew Barrymore and Greg Wencel at TIFF2009  Photo WireImageActress and director Drew Barrymore attended the recent Toronto International Film Festival for the international premiere of her film, Whip it! She stopped by The Portrait Studio at The Sutton Hotel to show-off edgy but classic Cover Girl looks with make-up pro Greg Wencel

Drew’s Look
“Stars, like Drew Barrymore, are keeping it neutral for daytime while still making a statement,” says Greg. “Tone-on-tone shadows are being used to construct a sculpted eye, extending the shadow to the temple. This creates an edgier look, reminiscent of the 1980s, rather than the rounded shape normally used to create a classic no-make-up look. For an extra element of drama complete the look with COVERGIRL LashBlast Luxe Mascara.
Greg’s make-up tip
To get Drew’s look, create an exaggerated smoky eye using neutral shades like caramels and toffees. This can be achieved by extending the darker shade, used on the lash-line and crease, all the way out to the temple. For added shimmer and drama, finish off this neutral smouldering look with a generous coat of LashBlast Luxe Mascara.

Greg’s make-up tip
For a feminine glow, smooth your preferred shade of COVERGIRL Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush on the apple of the cheeks. This creamy formula glides evenly across skin, adding a youthful flush of colour. This formula also contains ingredients that have been clinically shown to improve skin’s condition.
Think Greg’s make-up tips won’t work for you?
Greg’s tips may work as well for you as they do for Drew, but you will never know if you don’t try. A little change can give you a big lift. I have been living in Cover Girl Café au Lait Eye Enhancers. The three soft shades of mink-grey shadow are perfect for a day-to night smoky eye look. I adore the creamy texture and there is never a crease. The look is classic, but sexy.

This shadow combo is hit with fashionistas of all ages who want fall’s smouldering runway looks. The soft neutral keeps the look sophisticated and chic.
