A soft,taupy smokey eye is my go-to look when I have to wear makeup all day-it’s not heavy so I can pull it off day to night and it needs minimum touch ups.I love the smudged, black eye pencil that blends into my eyeshadows, the light luminous base and a nude gloss to tone it down.

My base is sheer and glowy as this look is focused on my eyes.I used a tiny amount of my current favourite foundation where I needed some coverage, powder only on my T-zone and a light reflecting concealer under my eyes.I mixed both of the blushes to create a fresh peachy-pink shade and I added a touch of bronzer to warm up my complexion.Then I finished my face makeup with the highlighter on my cheekbones,bridge of the nose and inner eye corners.For my eye makeup I applied the light shades all over my lids, the soft brown on my crease and the dark bronze shade on the outer V and close to my botton lash line.I defined my eyes with a black eye pencil,smudged with a pencil brush and I made it look softer by applying some of the darker eyeshadow on top.Then a little bit of eye pencil on the waterline and lots of black mascara.My brow routine is the same for months now and you can find it here.Last but not least a nude lip gloss which makes my lips look fuller and the result is so soft that compliments the smokey eyes.
You can also wear it paired with a dark,berry lip for nights out.It’s such a versatile smokey and I love it!
