Eye'd Try It™: Soft n Smokey

Want to wear smokey during the day while at work without being too dramatic? Try this look!

Prep and Finish: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, L'Oreal Liquid Eyeliner (Black), Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara (Black)

Brushes: Modern Basic Brush Chisel Pointed Fluff (808), Modern Basic Brush i-Contour (853), Modern Basic Brush Super Shader (805)

Shadows: L'Oreal Wear Infinite Quads Eye Shadow, Smokey Eyes 904

How I did it:

Applied the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion on the entire lid. Using the Modern Basic brush (808), I applied color #2 to the brow bone. Then using Modern Basic brush (805)I applied color #1 on the entire lid starting below the brow bone. Next I applied color #3 (same brush) in the center of the eyelid. Last I applied color #4 to the upper outer corners of the lid using Modern Basic brush (853).

Note: When using the same brush, be sure to tap off the excess color before applying the next color.

Then I applied L'Oreal Liquid Liner (Black) on the upper lid and Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara (Black)

 The key is to add just a hint of color, where it's soft but not too dramatic. This is a perfect look for the workplace and then just darken the shadow for the evening out on the town.
