Perfect the smokey eye with Kate Tokyo SS2015 Collection

Sponsored Review 

Nothing is more iconic in the world of beautiful looks than the smokey eye; that classic mysterious look that keeps that is perfect either for work or a night out to paint the town red. KATE brings us this classical look with an understated twist with subtle definition instead of harsh lines thanks to its SS2015 collection.

The KATE Monochrome Shine ($27) is available in 5 gorgeous variants that range from a warm Natural Light-Brown hues to a cool Blue shade that adhere naturally close to our Asian skintones without looking gaudy. The palette comes with 2 additional quads which has a shiny whitish color as well as the shiny blackish color which allows you to contour around the eyes to add depth and give additional dimension to achieve defined peepers.

 Use the Black shade to draws attention to iris by smudging it along the lash-line, while using the White to highlight the entire lid area and below brow arch.  Here's how it looks like when swatched on hand; its finely milled glitter may look rather loud here but it gives it a subtle sheen that eye-catching when applied, and builds up the gradient effect pretty naturally. 

And this look cannot be complete without the mandatory eyeliner! The Kate Super Sharp Liner ($17) has a nicely balanced brush tip that is versatile for thin lines or for thicker big lines for that impactful look. However, being someone with super oily eyelids,  the lasting power for me is not as strong as I do find though that its smudges after wearing it for about half a day.

No look is complete if your brow game isn't strong! The Kate Lasting Eyebrow in BR1 ($23.50)is dual tipped so you can achieve intricate or dramatic linework, how your prefer it. On one side, is a sponge-tipped applicator, which dabs out a pretty pigmented brown shade, so do light-handed on this. Whereas the other head is a swivel pencil, which makes it easy to fill in or define the brow ends.

And here's a quick application guide (although I prefer using the felt tip simply when I'm pressed for time!)

Here is my entire look using all 3 items; the perfect evening look with a touch of vampyness!

The KATE 2015 SS COLLECTION is currently retailing at selected FairPrice Finest, FairPrice Xtra, OG, John Little, Nishino Pharmacy, Sasa Cosmetics and Watsons.

Thank You Olivia and Touch PR for the press drop!
