Pic Tut: Smokey Browns

Hi Beauties,

This is a pretty basic brown "smokey" eye look that I did today.  As you all probably know by now, I am generally very light handed when it comes to applying makeup so don't expect anything extremely SMOKEY haha.. I appologize in advance as the colors seem to be a bit washed out in the pictures :( in real life the eye makeup is definitely darker.  I would myself reserve this look for the evening time or on days off :) But depending on your level of comfort, this look can be worn day or night :) Hope you enjoy!!! :P

Face: Guerlain Parure extreme in 02, Guerlain radiance extract, MAC cream blush in ladyblush, Givenchy LE unique compact powder in island sun, MAC MSF in by candlelight.
Shiseido brow pencil in natural blackMaybelline stiletto voluptous mascara waterproof, maybelline age rewind concealer in light*forgot to put this w/ face stuff*, Lise Watier liquid eyeliner in Noir, my trusty almay liner, too faced shadow insurance, Maybelline quads in Natural Smokes and Chai latte,and MAC baked quad in odd bits.
Primed my lips with Dior Creme De Rose, lightly applied Dior Addict lipcolor in 859 Rose libertin Ravishing Rose.

1. Starting off with a a clean face!
Here I have already applied primer + foundation + concealer.
I also did my eyebrows, tight lined my upper lashline + primed my eyes.

2. Eye shadows are applied as following:
Chai Latte
Natural Smokes

Light brown shade all over lid and just below brow bone.
Apply 2 to just above natural crease.

Apply 3 to outer "v" * I like to make a "C" instead to make it look a bit softer. Make sure you blend away the harsh edges! If the colors fade too much, don't be scared to add some back on!
How my eyes looks so far.
I like to add a shimmery color to just the inner 1/3 of my lid
Here I have already lined my eyes using a liquid liner. Wing out the liner at the ends.
Lined the outer 2/3 of my bottom lashline w/ 2&3. Then highlighted inner corner w/ 5.
 * I forgot to mention my highlight color - see products! *

Added some mascara. What a difference mascara makes :)

Eye makeup done!
Time to add some bronzer, blush & lip color!

Completed Look:

Please excuse my messy hair!
