Which is why we love these sets that make creating a smoky eye easier than ever. Some even come with numbered steps and instructions. Ready to help others on your shopping list master a smokey eye in the new year? Then check out these gorgeous palettes, perfect for gifting:
This box set comes with everything you need to create a flawless smoky look: an eyeshadow quad (that’s numbered with each step for seamless application), black kohl eyeliner and lash-lengthening mascara.
With eight shadow shades and a how-to guide, this handy kit can help create a few smokey eye variations, mixing in neutral shades like brown and eggplant. The mirror and application brush included makes this limited edition buy easy to carry for friends on-the-go.
Focus on more than just the shadow with this luxe kit that includes By Terry’s signature Hyaluronic Eye Primer, plus mascara, kohl eyeliner, brow liner and a long-lasting cream shadow stick. The products come inside a metallic, graphic print makeup pouch — so really, it’s like two fabulous gifts in one.
This Topshop kit in brown-based colors gives you everything you need to create a look that’s a bit less intense, perfect for those with fairer skin and hair who feel that black shadow is a little too harsh. Add the mascara and kohl eyeliner, and she’ll have her whole look finished with one tiny box.
