Smoky Eyes

Primer: ELF eyelid primer in Sheer.
Brush: Eyeshadow Brushes (I used 2 dome eye-shadow brushes, one angled brush and one blending eye brush).
Eyeshadow: Coastal Scents 26 Shadow-Blush Palette

Eyeliner: Black liquid/gel eyeliner
Eyelash Curler
Mascara: Black mascara

The Tutorial:

1. Apply eyelid primer on entire eyelid and blend it using your ring finger. Let it sit on your eyelid for a few seconds before you move on to the eye-shadows.

2. Next, for this 'day to night' look, we have to find a smokey brown shade which should not too dark to wear during daytime or it should not be too light for night, for entire lip. Color 1 from Coastal Scents 26 shadow blush palette is perfect for the purpose.

Dab color 1 generously on all over eyelid using a dome eyeshadow brush, leaving the inner most corner of eyes.

3. Take little bit of color 2 (which is a light peachy shade) with blending brush and blend only the junction of smokey brown into your skin. Believe me, you can never overdo this step. So, blend-blend-blend. However, we do not want to loose the darkness of eyelid; therefore blending only junction area is the key.

4. Using an angled eye shadow brush, apply color 1 just under outer half of lower lash-line. Smudge using a cotton bud as needed. 

5. Apply your favorite black eyeliner along upper lash-line. I used a gel liner for this eye makeup.

6. Using any highlighting color (preferably gold or brown based) you have, highlight areas such as inner most corner of eyes and brow-bone area.

7. Curl your lashes and apply your favorite black mascara.

...That's all
