I discovered the Upside Down Smoky Eye back in the '80s...although I think I was doing it with bright blues back then! Then the other night, I came across makeupgeek.com's tutorial for an Upside Down Smoky Eye, and figured I'd give it a shot again, since it had been over 20 years since I'd done it.
Today wasn't the best day to do it because 1) the circles under my eyes were extremely dark from lack of sleep last night, and 2) my allergies have been out of control, making my dark circles even darker and making my eyes red and watery. But I didn't think about that until it was too late. Amazingly, my eye makeup was still intact at the end of the workday!
