Smokey Eye Tutorial

So I just posted a video on YouTube on how to do a
really simple & subtle smokey eye. Only one eyeshadow was used to create the smokey eye and of course another shadow for the highlight and lower lash line.
It's really really easy, & is completely fail proof.
This is a really good look for beginners who really want to try doing a smokey eye.
Don't limit yourself to just a black shadow also, you can have a more everyday smokey eye by just using a brown instead of a black, or you could even try using two shadows instead of one (using black on lid and using a light brown in crease to smoke it out).
I hope you guys try this look out, and have fun with it :]

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Elf Shadow Brush
Elf Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Pencil Brush
Urban Decay Shadow in Perversion
Stila Trio in Bronze Glow

So this is what the finished look is going to look like

1. Prime lid
2. Apply black shadow on lid (how high up you want to go depends on how dramatic you want your look to be)
3. Get your blending brush and just blend the oute
r edge up (this is going to create the smokey look)
4. Get a light shadow and highlight under your brow
5. Get a soft brown shadow and apply it on your lower lid
6. Apply mascara!

New GeoLens!!

I've recently received my GeoLens contacts in the mail from They have an amazing shipping process (from their company to hawaii was really just about 3 days). The pair that I brought is called the Angel 2 Tone color in Violet (CM-831). THEY ARE SO CUTE! They have a thick black ring along the outer edge of the contact which helps to give the appearance of having bigger looking eyes. The pair was $24.95 on the site plus shipping ($6.95), so in total my payment was $31.98. Their website has a huge variety to choose from which was really impressive. There were a lot of site that I went through that were sold out on a lot of the Geo Lenses. Prices for each type of GeoLens vary which is good, so a pair that you might be interested in may be quite affordable :]. How to open them in their jars and more information on the site is in my video.

Here are some pictures of what they look like:

This is the box that it came in :]

The packaging that the contacts come in are little jars (one contact in each jar).

This pair is called: CM-831 or, Angel 2 tone in Violet

This is basically what they look like on :]
