Since the smokey eye is a trend that’s here to stay, why not have one makeup palette that get the job done? Well, you can spend upwards of $75 for that palette, or you can spend under $6. Hmmm, let me do that math. Considering that I’m saving for a new coat and pair of boots, I think the latter will suffice. And in reality the budget palette does more than suffice, it rocks!
I bought the Rimmel Smokey Noir palette of 4 colors for $5.99 at Walgreens and it has more than enough colors to get the job done. I used the shimmery gray on my lid and the darkest gray in my crease. I lined with the black and then contoured a bit more in the crease with the black. I had a rockin’ smokey eye that lasted for hours.

Now, Rimmel isn’t quite as pigment potent as say NARS of Make Up For Ever, but it still applies smoothly and is long-lasting.
