Because I liked my first colored smokey eye, I decided to go with what my blogger friends suggested; Green was the winner!
+ I primed my eyes with an eye primer, a white base to make the color pop, and a green base to make the green pop! I lined my eyes with a glittery hunter green eyeliner pencil and smudged it out. I patted the inner two-thirds of my lids with an intense green shimmer eye shadow, leaving the outer-third with a darker more intense green shadow. I blended out the greens in the crease with a matte camel color and blended it even more in the lower crease with a medium matte brown; I highlighted with a shimmery nude pink shade. I lined my lower lashes with the eye liner and smudged it out with my crease color, leaving the look more smokey than harsh. For defined brows, I used my favorite brow pencil.

+ For lips, I applied lip balm. I noticed that I haven’t been lining my lips as often! I just went straight to the bullet and applied the matte pink lipstick.
Lips: Rimmel Kate 101
+ For my face, I used the beauty blender to apply my liquid foundation and concealer. I powdered my under eye area and places that had concealer. Then, I went in with a more dramatic contour with a very pigmented bronzer and used a light hand with the satin pink blush.

Even though this is a smokey eye, the green complemented my eyes and wasn’t too harsh or dramatic to wear for an early dinner out.
What’s another good color for a fun smokey eye?
