Basic Smokey Brown Eyes – Step By Step Tutorial

Clinique eyeshadow primer, Clinique quad

Hi peeps!  I’m still pregnant but I have been offline for a couple of days due to the arrival of my Momma from UK and the breakdown of internet at home.  I had a couple of false labour contractions (Braxton Hicks) and they were bloody agony so I’m definitely going to take all the drugs when it is time.  Anyway, due to lack of preparation even though I said I would blog like a maniac, I thought I would blog about a Smokey Brown Eye Tutorial I did for one of my Clinique It Girl posts recently.

Smokey brown eyes are now my usual eye look these days.  It took me a while to get into neutral eyeshadow but Urban Decay Naked 2 did it for me

<< Off tangent, but do you like the new Urban Decay Naked 3?  To be honest, I’m a little bit over it, but I do like the rose gold swatches but doubt I’ll be splashing out on it… >>

Playing with Mary Kay Make-Up…

I was recently blessed with a generous and delightful care package courtesy of Mary Kay filled with make-up galore.  Everything was delicately wrapped and every time, I opened something up, I was like, “WOW!” or “OOH!”  #makeupporn

My Husband heard all these “interesting” noises so he came to my Beauty Room to investigate and he, being a guy who has no interest in make-up whatsoever, just smiled, shrugged his shoulders and went back to his Man Cave.

Anyway, I thought I’d do a #makeupporn picture heavy post so here I go…

Look At Me!??!!  Geez, what a narcissistic title!  Actually, please don’t look at my face – I was testing a new BB cream which did NOT photograph well.  BUT, check out my eye make-up!  For once, my eye make-up skills are not shockingly bad because I basically, followed the instructions at the back of The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Smoky Copper…defined my brows with yesterday’s FOA HD Brow Kit and added false eyelashes (gotta fake it!)

I was glamming up for a Date Night with the Husband when I decided to try and recreate a seductive smoky eye – but I looked like I had bruised eyes with my first freestyle attempt.  So I decided to rummage through my make-up stash and then I came across The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Smoky Copper - which was part of a gift bag from a blog event.  I knew it was time to crack it open and put it to the test.
