Simple Smokey Eyes

Hello world!! 

Yes, yes I have been gone for about three months now and I truly really do regret it. I won't be one of those bloggers that says they're here to stay because honestly I've been so busy with school and work, I probably won't be as committed as I used to be. That being said, though I truly will try my absolute best to post at least once a week if not, at least once a month. Hope you all missed me because I sure missed you!!

For today's look, I went back to basics and did just a black smokey eye with a little bit of gold on the inner corner. I did this look on my friend for a wedding and got a request to recreate it!!

Here's the look:

The tutorial:

For the cheeks I used a matte bronzer and a peachy blush (Apricot from La Femme)

To look like

For my lips I used a nude lipstain (Sephora lipstain #2) notice the crazy cracking? The only reason I hate wearing lipstains alone!!

Final face:

And that's the finished look, thanks so much for stopping by!
