Get a Perfect Smokey Eye the Sophie Turner Way

How many of us have long stretches of time where we just totally stop wearing eyeliner because we’re so fed up with it? It almost never goes on smoothly, and then when it does, it ends up halfway down our face by the second hour of our workday. We’ve wasted so many makeup wipes and Q-tips hoping to make our winged tips take flight, but the flight’s been indefinitely delayed. So what can we do to prepare for takeoff?

We can start using the NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner. NARS is already known for its high-quality cosmetics, but we were even more convinced that this eyeliner was The One after seeing Sophie Turner on her press tour for Dark Phoenix. Her makeup artist, Georgie Eisdell, used a NARS liner to craft a stunning smokey eye look for day two in Paris, France!

Eisdell lined Turner’s upper and lower lash lines, strategically smudging the liner to create a cloudy charcoal-blue halo around her similarly-colored eyes. She perfected the look with black mascara, dewy makeup and a glossy lip. Turner’s blonde hair was parted to the side and her look was befitting a queen, if you ask Us. Each day, we become more and more convinced that we want to see Sansa Stark sitting on that Iron Throne as Game of Thrones draws to a close!

Shoppers are loving this long-wear eyeliner, saying how it “lasts and lasts,” even past its claimed 12-hour wear time! One also commented on just how easy it is to use, saying that “the fine tip is fabulous for clean, fine lines,” meaning sharp, precise wings are in our very near future!

This NARS eyeliner claims to be super rich and creamy, making it easy to smudge but difficult to budge once it’s set! It claims to glide on smoothly, not tugging at the delicate skin around our eye or creating accidental zig-zags when we were hoping for sleek, curving lines. It also claims that, even at the 12-hour mark, we won’t see any smearing, caking or flaking, so we can stop checking ourselves out in every window and mirror we pass to make sure we didn’t turn into a raccoon when we weren’t paying attention!

A great feature of this liner is the built-in sharpener. Anyone like Us loses their eye pencil sharpener almost as soon as they buy it, so we love having everything all in one piece. Just twist!

This liner comes in intense colors, already setting the stage for show-stopping, everyday looks. We don’t have to stick solely to black just to suit the everyday. If blue or purple are just as easy to apply, then why can’t those be everyday colors too?

There are seven colors currently available, all named for iconic streets around the world, from Madison Avenue to Via Veneto. Basically, wearing this liner is like taking ourselves on a mini vacation. So where are we off to first? The ultra-light Santa Monica Boulevard or the gorgeous blue Khao San Road? Meet everyone there!
