Took this on my way home today, I love sunsets in the winter!
How are you all doing? My week’s going along pretty slow, maybe because I’m looking forward to my MAC master class tomorrow night and have been waiting for it for 3 weeks now lol.
Here’s a smokey brown look I did this weekend:
You start by drawing a line with matte black shadow, stop before you get to the inner corners of your eyes.
Then you blend a dark brown matte shadow over the black, just past your crease.
Take a lighter matte brown shadow with a fluffy blending brush and blend along and past the crease.
It should look like this.
Line your upper lashes. I do winged liner because my eye shape looks funny if it just stops at the outer corners. Take a matte bone colored shadow and blend along your brow as a highlight. Then take a shimmery white shadow and fluff it into the inner corners of your eyes.
Now blend the black and brown shadows together and smudge them along your lower lashline. If you like, also line the waterlines of your eyes with black pencil.
Add mascara and you’re done! I went back and added a little more dark brown on the lid to really make the color show, but you don’t have to.
This is how it looks from the side/eyes closed.

this is so pretty! i basically only wear brown shadow so im gonna try this look.
Oh, great sunset photo! I love your look, I may have to try it out for a change. Ever since I discovered purple and green eyeshadow, it seems I hardly ever wear browns anymore. Loves me some color! But this is really pretty, and I might just do it myself.
Love this look, very pretty! 🙂
