Casual Smokey Eye

Over the past couple of months I've learnt to ditch the feline flick and instead go for a light eyeshadow look instead as it seems to suit my overalls big eyes a little bit as well as make me look more my age (which is a massive plus for me!). I've also learnt to love wearing a bolder lip colour wand both these looks go hand in hand which is why it's my current favourite!.

For the eyes I used stila eyeshadow in colours silk and bonbon with a smudge of scandaleyes by rimmel in the colour bronze. I then blended all these together with a real techniques shading brush!. I next moved on to my lips and first lined them with a Rimmel Lip Pencil in the colour Indian pink and then coloured in the entire lip with the same pencil then tapped on some mac lipstick in the colour girl about town!. 

I've also used the following products:
Mac Pro Longwear Foundation, Collection Concealor, Maybelline The Falsies Mascara, Nars Laguna Bronzer, Sleek Contour Kit, Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Gold Deposit,  MUA Shade 1 blush, Mac Brow Set, Wet N Wild Eyebrow Palette.

What's your favourite versatile make up look?
