Simple Every Day Eye Makeup Tutorial

I had to share with you guys one of my go to looks for eye makeup. It's really simple and has a day smokey eye effect. Here's how you can get the look.

1. Apply a soft pink shimmer eyeshadow all over your lid. I use the Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten.
2. Apply to your crease a golden pink color and once applied blend the eyeshadow. I use Push-Up from Too Faced.
3.Apply a dark brown eyeshadow to the outer edges of your lid in the shape of a C. Then blend. I use Sexpresso from Too faced.
4. Then using an eyeliner brush apply eyeliner in a subtle cat eye. To do this I like to start with a thicker line at the outer edge of my eye and then make the line thinner the closer in to my nose that I get. Then once I have a line that I'm happy with I go back to the outer edges of my eye and slant the eyeliner up at the corners to create a subtle cat eye. For my eyeliner I use Bobbi Brown's Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink.
5. Then curl your eyelashes and apply mascara. I use Buxom mascara.

That's it! Usually this takes me about 10 minutes so it's a really good look when I'm running short on time in the morning. Let me know if you have any questions or any makeup looks that you'd like tutorials for in the future!


  1. love the tutorial! i confess, i normally put on my make-up in the car on my 5 minute commute to work...so i may have to improvise a few steps (gel liner with a brush in the car may not be a safe choice). but i love the colors you used together and have most of them already.

  2. That looks great! I'm jealous of your long, full eyelashes. I definitely need to go purchase a gel-eyeliner soon. Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. Love the look ;)
    Kitten has been one of my LONG time favorite colors! So pretty and shimmery ;)
