The Brown Smokey Eye

Naked Palette: Halfbaked, Smog, Darkhorse and Creep

For this look I grabbed my Naked Palette from Urban Decay, but if you do not have it, that's fine!  You can grab any drug store version with the three colors above or use the same technique with any other three colors! 

1. Taking your oval shaped brush, dip it into Halfbaked.  Applying the gold shimmer all over your lid and just slightly on the inside corner of the bottom lid.

2. Taking your domed shaped brush, dip it into Smog.  Apply this to the creases and outer corners of your eye.  Making sure to smudge the colors a bit!

3.  Using your "smugdy" angled shading brush, dip into Darkhorse, smudge the color in the crease and outer corners, dragging the color up then smudging down into the outer corners.

4. Grab your small dome brush once more and dip into Creep or a black eyeshadow, and slightly smudge up to blend the colors.  Add a little to the bottom corner to get a bit of the smokey eye on the bottom lid.

I absolutely love a smokey eye!  I think its great that you don't necessarily need to use blacks or greys to achieve the look, but any type of colors will work!  Here's what I used one more time!
