Daytime Smoky Brown Eye

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting anything this week. It turned out to be a pretty tough week for me actually for reasons I'll get into another time. I'm trying to get back to my routine and back in the swing of things with everything including my blog. Here is an easy, smokey eye that is great for daytime!

To start, apply a taupe eyeshadow all over the lid. I used MAC Quarry.

Next, apply a highlighter shade to the inner half of the lid.

Darken up the outer corner a bit with a matte, brown shadow.

Take an angled eyeliner brush and a dark brown or black eyeshadow, trace a liner along the upper lash line with a small wing on the outer corner. 

Finish off the eyes with some of the same highlighter shade in the tear duct area and a few coats of your favorite mascara!

I used Kat Von D blush in Por Vida on the cheeks and L'Oreal lipstick in "I Pink Your Cute" on the lips. Then your done! An easy daytime look.

What I Used

Definitely more posts to come as I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. XO

  2. I really really love this sort of makeup look and it really does look gorgeous!! Such a good idea to use a matte brown eye shadow to line the lashes as it looks so natural compared to a more harsh and dramatic black eyeliner. Looks beautiful on you as well!
