Wearable Smoky Eye

I don't know about you but when I hear the words 'smoky eye' I instantly think of really precise winged eye liner, silver and black shades, and a look that would take a lot of time and look impractical on a day to day basis. Personally, eyeshadow is my favourite step of my makeup routine, so sometimes I like to do something a bit more special than just one shade over my lid. This is my wearable smoky eye using my MAC quad that I personalised, which you can read about in more detail in this post. Sorry in advance for the photo heavy post too.

Start by putting a golden/bronze shade all over your lid.

Then start to deepen your crease by putting a lighter brown shade through your crease.

This would even be enough on its own, if you are going for an even simpler look.

Next, add a darker brown shade to your outer corner, so the end of your crease, and then connect it to your upper lash line.

Then blend out the edges so all the different shades connect and look slightly less harsh.

Lastly for the eyeshadow, run the lightest shade under your lower lash line in the inner half, and the darkest shade in the outer half.

Then add your mascara.

Finished! This is honestly such a quick and easy look that still looks beautiful and like you've spent ages doing your makeup.

Would you wear this eyeshadow?
