Last week when I was in Houston for the rodeo I wore this easy, soft smokey eye. Since it was the rodeo, I didn’t want anything too glam so I went with this type of look. I love the way it really opens up the eye! Since the dark shadow is concentrated just on the outer corner of the eye it helps elongate it. With the light shade on the center of lid and inner corner, it helps give the eye a nice rounded look.
This look also makes good day-time glam look since it is much softer than a full, bold smokey eye.
I had planned on making this a Get Ready with Me/mini vlog video… but that didn’t end up working out. This explains the reason why my hair isn’t fully done and I am just wearing a pink tee in the tutorial video!
For the light brown shadow and light gold shades, I used shadows from the ABH Modern Renaissance palette. The dark brown shadow, Embark, is by MAC.
