Smokey Eye with Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette

A video posted by Tara (@blondefashionista) on

I’m definitely not a make-up artist, and I don’t have a lot of time to do my make-up. Most days I have about five minutes to throw on some make-up (if I’m lucky). However, I do like to make the time to do a quick smokey eye. My latest purchase was Urban Decay Smoky Palette and I must say I’m a fan so far. There are some nice lighter shades (that I used in my video) for a daytime smokey. There are also a bunch of darker shades for going out when you can be a little more dramatic with it.

My video is here super-quick, but here are the details of my easy daytime smokey eye.

STEP 1: Use HIGH, put this throughout your eyelid

STEP 2: Use DIRTYSWEET, from the middle of your eyelid to the end

STEP 3: Use SMOLDER in the crease, and make sure to blend it, so that it doesn’t look too dark

STEP 4: Use AMOUR, all you need to do is lightly dab it. This gives your eye a little bit of a shimmer which i love.

STEP 5: Add whatever eyeliner and Mascara you like. I used a MAC eyeliner here.
