It's been a while since I wore a smokey eye makeup look and I really missed it. So, a few days ago I wore a wearable smokey eye.

Smokey eyes are the most sensual makeup look and can be created with just about any color.

Since this was a day look,  I didn't apply false lashes but added three coats of mascara instead.

If you like this look and would like to recreate it, I've listed the steps along with a full product list, below.


  1. Apply NYX Jumbo - Deep Brown all over lids as a base. Apply an olive brown shade as a transition color to the area below the brow bone.
  2. Layer a shimmery purple over the base and with a fluffy brush, blend any harsh lines.
  3. Apply a coffee brown to the crease to further define the eyes.
  4. To the inner corners, apply a gold color and highlight the brow bone with a whitish pink shadow.
  5. Apply black eye pencil to the waterline. On the lower lashline, smudge shades 6+3 (black and brown). 
  6. Finish the look with mascara.


  • NYX Jumbo Pencil - Deep Brown (smudged on lid as a base)
  • 80 e/s Palette - CA 80B
  • Avon Super Shock Gel Eyeliner - Black
  • Inglot Brows Eyeshadow - 562
  • Essence Maximum Definition Mascara - Black
  • Max Factor Lasting Performance - 105 Soft Beige
  • Catrice Camouflage Concealer - 010 Ivory
  • MUFE HD Powder
  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer - Medium/Deep
  • MAC Blush Ombre - Azalea Blossom
  • Too Faced Candlelight Glow
  • Teeez Deser Lush Sheer Lipstick  - Bloodstone Burgundy

Kisses, M!
