Smokey Eye to the Office?

She gives us some great advice about how to achieve gorgeous day-time eyes!

Smokey Eye to the Office

When wearing a smokey eye in the workplace, it’s best to tone it down with earthy colors. Black can sometimes come
across as very harsh and is considered more of a “night-out” look.

Instead, opt for colors such as: brown, gray, navy blue.

How to apply:

To get a sultry smokey brown eye, use a light brown shadow across the entire lid, a mid-brown shadow in the crease, and a darker brown shadow on the outer corner of the eye. Then, line the eye with either a pencil, liquid, or shadow, or cream liner in a dark brown shade.

Apply mascara (in black, brown, or the color of your choosing) and you instantly have a smokey brown eye, perfectly suited for the workplace!
