As the days seem to get shorter and shorter in the fall, I find sometimes I’m moving quickly in the mornings to get out the door. A simple smokey eye and an easy neutral lip is often my go-to look and is truly timeless. For Amanda, I used more taupe and cream shades since her features are lighter. For myself, with my darker features, I used more dark brown and golden shades. It’s important to think about coloring when choosing the perfect shadows for an easy smokey eye.
Mostly, you don’t have to spend a lot of time to look put together and this tutorial will hopefully get you there even faster!
SHOP AMANDA’S LOOK:
SHOP LAUREN’S LOOK:
This was such a fun experience learning from Lauren. I’m always following the same old morning routine (foundation, a smear of ‘carbon black’ eyeshadow and my go-to ‘angel’ lipstick) and I wanted to learn how to do a subtle smokey eye that I’d feel comfortable wearing to the office. I can’t wait to purchase all of these brushes and tools (you’ll be seeing them again in future tutorials!) so I can practice this easy look on my own.
Whether you have darker features like Lauren, or lighter features like me, I hope this tutorial makes you as excited as I am to try a new look. Feel free to Pin It for future reference and be sure to let us know in the comments if you have any questions or suggestions.
