Quick Casual Smokey Eye
Today, I was really bored and decided to mess around some more with my urban decay naked eyeshadow palette. I’m guessing the dreary weather inspired this darker look. This takes the usual smokey eye down a notch to a more casual level. Surprisingly, I only used two colors from the Urban Decay Naked Palette to achieve this look! So quick and so easy.
I first used sidecar, which gave it a sparkly base shimmer. I then layered hustle onto my outer corners (with the brush that came with the palette) and blended it into the center of my lids. To finalize the smokey eye, I used Smokey Extravagant and Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volum’Express Mascara. I usually always add a lining of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in hustle to my outer waterline (and progressively make it less heavy, the closer it gets to my inner corner).
My favorite thing about the smokey eye, in general, is that it is really flexible and can either be played down or up. I love that this particular one was so quick and took such a small amount of steps to complete! Once you master the art of blending, it will become second nature to you. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the smokey eye, blending, or makeup in general! Always here to help.
