Super easy smokey eye

I've been obsessed with super simple smokey eyes lately. They involve just three or four products, depending on whether or not I'm wearing glasses.

1) L'Oreal HiP Color Rich Cream Crayon
2) ELF Brightening Eye Color Eyeshadow Quad
3) Milani Liquif'Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil
3) L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black (skip this is I'm wearing mascara)

So, it's super easy. Thick line of the HiP crayon on top and a thinner line on the bottom. ELF eyeshadow in the same color. Blend out the crayon with that color using a pencil brush, so you've got no harsh lines. Use a second lighter color above the first. Maybe another shade in the crease. Curl lashes. Apply liner to water line. If glasses=yes, no mascara. If glasses=no, add mascara.

Done. :-)

Examples of colors that I use. Perfectionist Crayon with Drama Quad. Authentic Crayon with Ivy Quad. Unmistakeable Crayon with Luxe Quad. or Attentive or Meticulous Crayons with Sand Castle Palette from WnW. I also have the Intricate crayon, so I'm going to have to dig out an Ulta shadow I got a few xmases ago to match with that.

Oh, I also use L'Oreal Decrease. Seriously, L'Oreal does me no wrong.

Face products today: Covergirl fresh complexion concealer in Natural Beige, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Silky Beige, Revlon Powder Blush in Softspoken Pink, and Chapstick (cherry! ^_^)

I guess I'll eventually start doing pix. Because I've been wanting to share these super easy smokey looks.
