Soft Smokes

So this is one of my most go to every day kind of looks. 
It's simple with a slightly soft smokiness to the eyes, and a nude lip. Enjoy

Products Used:
NYX Eyeshadows in Taupe, Dark Brown & Black
UD 24/7 liner in Zero
CG Lash Blast
Tarte Cheek Stain in Natural Beauty
Nars blush in Exhibit A
Maybelline lipstick in Nude Blush
Nars lip gloss in Orgasm

Always prep the lids with primer before you apply shadow.
 Line both lash lines with black pencil liner & smudge.
Apply two coats of your blackest, most volumizing mascara to lashes 
after all shadows are in place.

Smudge black shadow on top of the liner.
Cover remaining lid in dark brown.
Use the taupe to define the crease.
(Tip: I also use the taupe color to define my 
cheekbones. It looks more natural then a brown bronzer).

Before applying lipstick, always exfoliate lips.
Use a moisturizing chapstick,
then apply nude color to lips.
(Nude lips are not as forgiving as other colors,
so moisturizing prior to applying 
is a MUST).

Be sure to choose a nude lip color that is 
complimenting to your skin tone so it doesn't wash you out.
This color here is universally flattering. 

To keep lips from looking dead,
apply a peachy gloss on top.
I used NARS lipgloss in Orgasm.

Use fingers to apply a natural looking stain to cheeks,
blending towards your temples.

Use a big fluffy brush to apply NARS Exhibit A blush
using a light hand.
Always top cheeks w/ a powder when using
cream blushes to keep the color in place 
throughout the day.

Overall look

Everyday Smokey Eye

So I wanted to make an easy to do everyday smokey eye.
 Something not too intense and that is easy to pull of during the day time. 
Hope you guys like it! :>

Start out with all the items you will need for this:

 Maybelline Color Gleam Cream Eyeshadow in Purple Possibilities.
Used as a cream base for the following shadows to stick.
The third color for inner two thirds of the lid, the middle color for the outer third.

 Maybelline Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow in Legendary Lilac.
The second color for an all over lid, and the last color for the crease.

 NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Lake Moss. 
Its a bunch of dark and smokey shimmers.
I used the middle purple one for the Outer V.

Always line the lids and smudge the top lash line with UD 24/7 liner in Zero.

 Lash Blast + TFSI.

For the lips:
Maybelline lipstick in Nude Blush.

Most virtually flattering nude lipstick. 
Looks great on everyone! Esp. my model ;)

Over all look.
