jourdan dunn smokey eyes useIt’s party season! Whether you are partying in the office or stepping out for a night of frivolity, one tried-and-true look for a night out is the smokey eye.  With the Smashbox Fade To Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette you can take your makeup from an office-appropriate day look, to a sparkly, sultry smoking hot look for your night out.

We love the way Jourdan Dunn can rock a subtle smokey eye and take it to full-on blacked out smoke. And, that’s exactly what you can do with the Fade to Black palette.

That’s why we picked this great palette for our Friday Find.

Here are the details on Smashbox Fade To Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette $42:

Smashbox Fade to Black Photo op eyeshadow paletteWhat it is:
A palette of neutrals that starts with the most wearable nudes and ends with the fiercest blacks.

What it does:
In a range of finishes, from matte to shimmer, these eye shadows are super versatile and seriously cool.

This set contains:
Fade In Palette:
-7 x 0.22 oz eye shadows in: matte warm ivory, matte flesh, shimmery taupe, matte chocolate brown, khaki with golden shimmer, matte dark chocolate, black with gold pearl

Why I love it:

Well, I have used this palette for a sweet day time look and for a sexy nighttime look.  The shadows are heavy on pigment, which make the darker colors perfect for lining.  I happen to love working them into my pencil liner for a smokey eye.  The compact houses a mirror–something that seems to be optional these days in makeup palettes–that makes me happy.  It also comes with a little eyeshadow brush. But I rarely use the brushes that come in a palette, but for those who do, it’s a great addition.

Editor’s note: I prematurely deleted my selfies wearing this palette, but I will update this post shortly with my personal pics!

Pro: 7 gorgeous shadows in one palette, great pigments that shows well on brown skin, long-wearaing

Con: None

    The colors in this palette are gorgeous. Especially the gold and champagne sort of color. May be something I should invest in.

    Can I say I think I would buy this just because of the name? Make me think of Jay Z……anyway, back to the product. I love this!! And seeing how you can mix shades together, why would you need any other neutral palettes? I might splurge on this bad boy.
