Holiday Smokey Eye!

Hey everyone! Today I will be doing a post on how to achieve a holiday smokey eye that is so simple but looks like you put so much effort in it! I did a silver/ black smokey eye but you can use any colors with the same technique. 


1. Prime your eyes I recommend Two Faced Shadow Insurance or Urban Decay Primer Potion.

2. Apply a silver eyeshadow (or whatever color you want) all over the lid. I used Forgery by MAC.

3. Next, apply NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean to the upper lash line (try to make it a little messy)

4. Take a smudge brush or a Q-tip and smudge the liner 

5. Take a liner brush, I am using the MAC 212 brush and the color Nehru by MAC and applying it like top liner (over the NYX Pencil)

6. I am applying a light shimmery eyeshadow from the LA Colors Star Gaze Palette and putting it on my inner corner

7. Apply mascara any will work but the one I have been loving lately is the MAC Zoom Lash and blush (I used Dainty by MAC)! 

8. Now apply gloss I recommend Baby Sparks by MAC or Love Child by MAC 

9. Go Rock Your Beautiful eyes!

Hope you enjoyed and leave request (if you have) in the comments!
