Summer Smokey Eye: Everyday Makeup

Recently, I’ve been rocking a bolder look on a daily basis — it’s a nice compromise between a natural makeup look and a full-on smokey eye, with a little summery twist that’s not too heavy.

Since my last everyday makeup look, I’ve gotten bolder with the shadow and gotten a much-needed update to my brow game (thank you, Anastasia!) It’s a wonder how big of a difference just a little color can make. As always, for any summer makeup look, SETTING SPRAY IS ~key~. I’m so impressed with the Urban Decay setting spray for making my makeup last an entire day without melting off, especially since I’ve got oily skin.

What really shines in this look is the tarte brown shadow (“heartbreaker”). It’s perfect for everyday or glam looks, since it’s a simple matte brown that blends with any warm or cool tone or skin color.

I’ve been in an experimenting mood lately, so expect bolder, more colorful looks to come… hint: it’s my favorite color 😉 What’s your summer makeup staple?

  • I love how natural your everyday make up looks! I want to spice up my look and move away from simple lipstick so this is very helpful.

    • Thanks girl! I’ve been trying to rock bolder lip colors too 😉
