The look is refined and classic. A smokey eye is sexy on everyone and is good for all occasions. Whether you’re going out for a party or just a small get together, a smoky eye is the perfect way to look good. No matter what your eye colour may be, the smoky eye will work for you. You may have to adjust the makeup a little bit to match your eye colour, but you will not be disappointed as long as you have the proper experience. No matter if you buy expensive or drug store makeup, you should find that the smoky eye is easier than some are lead to believe.

Now, it’s time to decide on what colours would suit your eyes:

Brown Eyes-

Brown eyed beauties have a lot of colours to choose from. They could use anything from bronze to blue. Pale purples, beige, gold, peach, pink, champagne, greens, blues, coral, copper, orange or even plum could be the accents you need for your smoky eye. Stick to the main colour of black for your smoky eye for sure.

Blue Eyes

Ladies with blue eyes have quite a few shades that they can pick from as well, but not nearly as much as people with brown eyes can. Something that many people believe is that blues are right for blue eyes, but this is false. Unless you’re using a dark blue, you shouldn’t have blue on. Shades of grey, brown, orange, taupe, purple, violet, and silver also look brilliant on someone with blue eyes. Dark colours will make light eyes pop so keep that in mind. You can use either dark grey, black, or dark blue for your main colour in your smoky eye.

Green Eyes

Ladies with green eyes really have to pay attention to their skin to make most of their decisions with makeup, unfortunately. They cannot use a lot of colours with their eyes. Most people with green eyes can use colors like brown, red, beige, purple, and pink. Also, light greens look very good with green eyes and make them pop, but avoid dark green. You can use black or dark brown as your main colour in your smoky eye.

A quick tip when doing a dramatic eye is to make sure that your eye shadow is well blended. Always use a blending brush that has a soft, fluffy brush head to provide a gentle application of colour to soften harsh lines or apply a transition colour to the crease this will help you master this look, I personally use and love Mac’s 217 Blending Brush. Lastly, this dramatic eye looks great when paired baby pink or even a nude lip. I always say it’s just makeup— it will wipe off. So have fun and experiment!

I literally have three types of hairstyles straight, wavy and homeless. I have never been good at styling my own hair, I get bored, my arms get tired and I end up giving up. My hair is pretty fine but I have a lot of it. If I shower and let my hair dry it’s have a slight wavy but for the most part it’s pretty straight. But lately I have been styling my hair wavy and it’s so easy and perfect for summer. All you do is spritz sea salt stray into your hair with some water to dampen it. Then grab all your hair at the back, divide it into two sections, twist the two sections around each other and when you reach the end, just roll the twisted hair into a bun and secure it with a band.

Make sure it’s tight even if it’s not perfect. Let the bun be for a minimum of two hours. Open the bun and separate your curls gently, scrunch it with some mousse if you so desire and you’re ready to hit the beach!

DIY Sea-Salt Spray Ingredients

– 1 cup warm water

– 1 Tbsp. sea salt

– 1 tsp Epsom salt

– 1 Tbsp. organic coconut oil

– 5 drops essential oil, optional

You’re going to need to start out with very warm water, preferably heated on the stove to nearly (but not quite) boiling. Next, add the sea salt and Epsom salt and stir until they are dissolved. When the salt is dissolved, add one tablespoon of organic coconut oil. You’ll have to stir it until it is melted completely. If you want to add essential oil for scent (I love adding peppermint oil) add five drops at the end. Mix well, and then pour into a spray bottle. Let me know some of your go to looks down below!

Perfect Eyebrows Every time

QUICK TAKE: Water Resistant, Long Lasting, Natural

Like most girls I am super picky about my brows, so I’ve been looking for a product that would give me a natural look but one I could easily control. My favorite product is Dipbrow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills it is amazing!

This product is really pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I use very little product to fill in my entire brow. I’ve been using this product for 3 months now and have used less than half of the jar. The formula is also long lasting, so my brows are perfect all day. I love the color options too! They recently added new colours so you’re sure to find the perfect match. There is such a get range of options. I am constantly getting compliments on my brows.

I simply brush it along the bottom line of my brows with an angle brush and brush upward with the spool brush on the other end of the brow brush. You must have a spool brush to even out the product. When I first started using it I was very nervous that my brows would look to strong because it’s so highly pigmented. I defiantly would recommend you practice and use a steady hand I’ve embedded a video demonstrating how to use it, I found this videos very helpful, enjoy!
