Fierce Friday is all about "Summer Smoke!"
What's "Summer Smoke"? It's an attitude. But more than that, it's a makeup trend that we just don't seem to tire of. Smoky eye makeup is sexy and fun and now it seems appropriate for every season. Dark smoky eyes were once considered a fall/winter "look", but now women are rocking smoldering smoky eyes year round. Just check out Keri Hilson at the premier of "Takers" on August 4 in Hollywood.
The best part is that you don't have to spend a fortune. Check out these makeup picks that you can get at your local drugstore for smokin' hot eyes like Keri. These drugstore brands are ones that have been put to the test and they are worth the investment.
