Hope you are having a good weekend! Here’s a simple and easy brown smokey eye makeup tutorial for you to try out this weekend. I love a brown smokey eye because its sultry but not over the top. And it pairs well with all lip colors! You can wear it with a nude lipstick in the day and transform the look to the a night look by just changing to a bold lip color!

For those who are unable to view the video, here’s a breakdown ~
Step 1 : Line waterline and upper lash line with the brown liner (product #1). Using a pencil brush like the MAC 219, smudge the liner.
Step 2 : Using a flat shade brush like the MAC 219, apply the brown eye shadow (product #2) all over the lid and along the lower lash line. Don’t take it all the way in, leave the inner corner and tear duct bare.
Step 3 : Using a light brown matte eye shadow ((product #3) blend the edges of eye shadow #2 in the crease. I used a MAC 217 blending brush.
Step 4 : Highlight browbone, inner corner and tear duct with a pale gold eye shadow. I used the lightest shade from Maybelline quad (product #4).
Step 5 : Reapply brown liner along the upper lash line and soften it slightly with a brush to avoid harsh edges.
Step 6 : Curl lashes and apply mascara!
