Today's FOTD was inspired by the lovely Spring weather we have been having! I chose to do a brown smokey eye with a bit of gold in hopes that it will channel the SUN! 

As always, I start with a clean fresh face & prime my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion and a layer of Painterly from my MAC paint pot. 

For my eyes, I used my custom Z Pallette with Makeup Geek colors -Creme Brulee, chickadee, Beaches & Cream, and Peach Smoothie were all used in the crease to build color and depth- I used Mocha in the outer corners to create a smoke eye. On the lid I used Mugshot from the Naked 3 Palette on a wet brush in order to give a more metallic finish. I was feelin' the need for heavy liner today and used Black track by MAC with an angled liner brush from Sigma. To sculpt and fill my brows I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade in Blonde - I love the color Taupe but its just too dark for me right now. I used yet another angled brush from Sigma to fill and shape my brows!
 For my foundation I am using MAC Studio Sculpt NW20  with a light layer of Mineralize Skin Finish on top. #33 Whispies from the brand Andrea were applied to my lashes with duo eyelash glue- and I ran a light coat of Smolder by MAC on my bottom waterline- followed up with MAC eyeshadow in Embark on a flat brush under my bottom lashed to add to the smoked out look. I contoured with Blunt by MAC and Warm Soul was used to warm up my cheeks. 

This look will be more dramatic, the darker the colors. I plan to use lots of light golds and browns with this technique this Spring with hints of Navy and Purple! 

What are your favorite smokey eye colors?
