This is great! My mom has asian eyes and I'm trying to practice different styles on her. I'll try a smoky eye on her.

Urban Decay makes something called Primer Potion and you put it on your eyelid before you eyeshadow. It keeps your eyeshadow from creasing all day! Like I've put that crap on in the morning and slept with it on then woke up the next morning and my eyeshadow was still awesome.

Thanks for the tip, I so have trouble doing smokey eyes. And sometimes my make goes all weird but I am under 18 ^^. God, I need decent brushes.

i need to get some more good brushes. i just have one & do the finger thang all dey errdey. fluidline looks like it's about to be my next purchase (thanks again, chictopia). oh & Shadow Lady by MAC is a really nice soft purple-black - great by itself for quick smokey eye action.

I really should go get MAC fluidline... I have very asian eyes and everything else I've tried smears :(

Great entry! Blacktrack is my most-favoritist makeup item. Also, if people are a little scared to use black-black shadow, a smoky silver, like MAC's Knight Devine also works well. :)
