Warm Brown Smoky

Who says we have to stick to black and grey in creating a smoky eyes look? Brown gives a more softer approach, and definitely warmed up the face. Brown smoky eyes will look great on any eye color, especially blue and green! In this tutorial, I layered a few different browns to warm up the eyes and it’s okay if it is messy! It gives that bedroom eye vibe, without looking like a panda ;). If you’re having difficulty doing a smoky eyes makeup using black, try using brown, it’s more forgiving.

Funny enough, quite a few of brides also like this type of makeup, especially for those who prefer a more natural look. I think this look goes with anything! Bridal, prom, date, night-out. It’s so simple and easy without being too overpowering.

Olive Twist

I always have this soft spot for olive colored eyeshadows cause they are just so lovely and pretty. This MAC Duo Mineralized eyeshadow in Bright Side/Gallery Gal is one of my favorite. You can apply the eyeshadows wet or dry, and you can do smoky, neutral, color anything you like! A simple duo eyeshadow can be used in so many ways!

The tutorial showed how to use the eyeshadows together in a very simple way, and you can wear this as a day look, or a night out. If you’re feeling brave, pair this up with a red lip, if you’re going to a party, apply false eyelashes. Make it your own! This classic liner look is getting a little twist from the olive-colored eyeshadow!


1. I applied Shiseido primer all over my face.

2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MAC Gallery Gal (the olive side) on the outer half of the lid.

3. Using another flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MAC Bright Side (the champagne side) on the inner half, blending it towards the olive.

4. Applied the same sequence of eyeshadow on the lower lid using a pencil brush.

5. Using an angled eyeliner brush, I applied MUFE Aqua Black gel liner and created a winged/cat-eyeliner on the upperlash line.

6. Using whatever was left on the brush, I applied MUFE Aqua Black along the waterline.

7. I curled my lashes and applied Dior Overcurl mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

8. I filled in my brows using a mixture of MAC Omega and Brun.
