Here at Influenster, we have a thirst for knowledge on all things beauty in international places. So, we're dedicating this series to update you on the must-know beauty buzz in various parts of the world! This week’s destination? France!
We don’t have to convince you a smokey eye is one of the most sought-after sultry looks for night owls. Although, what’s common over here in the States is quite different than the technique sported on the lids of women across the pond in France. They’re ditching liquid liners for something messier–try blendable eyeliners!
Fond of the creamy textures instead of powder shadows, French women adore a smokey eye that’s striking, yet simple to apply. It's common to take a creamy eye pencil and apply it along the upper and inner lash line, blending out from there. Finishing the look with a swipe of mascara and a splash of color to the cheeks and lips–that's how French women prep before painting the town.

It's impossible not to look like a knockout from the Burberry Eye Colour Contour Smoke and Sculpt Pen. The pen fits perfectly to the natural curve of the eye for a quick and easy application. Ideal for extra long nights on the town, it's crease-free and waterproof!
The Rodial Smokey Eye Pen creates a seriously bold eye with its kohl and gel-like formula.
The pigment-rich formula from Glominerals Cream Stay Shadow Stick delivers buildable color for an all-day eye statement. Pro tip: blend with your fingers immediately after applying so you can create the final look before the product sets.
