30 Days of Beauty ~ The Smokey Eye & Giveaway!

It seems like a very popular makeup request is the smokey eye.  Probably because it looks intimidating and hard to do.  Well, I want to prove to you that it actually isn't!  Anyone can do it.  Seriously, anyone.  So what do you think?  Do you want to learn how to do a smokey eye?
Here is the outfit I paired it with.  Now, take into consideration that this was on a Sunday and we didn't leave the house.  The boys were playing games and I took this unique opportunity to play dress up!  
I like the look with the belt tied around the scarf, but this scarf is a bit too long.  So I wrapped it around my neck. Voila!  Kinda Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen chic, huh?  I liked it. 



Cool or creepy?  I can't decide...
Pin It


Now holla if you want a video tutorial of these super smokey eyes with false lashes (ya, you guessed it, I only wish those babies were real)!!  Oh wait, I got one!  And guess what, I got a little something else for ya too!









Want to win a Smokey Eye set?  
Well, I want you to!  Just so you can try it.  One winner is going to win a Smokey eye kit, shadow stick with liner, eyelashes (all from e.l.f.) and Duo glue!!













 I know you can't wait!  Let's keep it simple.  Be a follower here and gimme a shout-out whether or not you would try this look.  And then share it in some way shape or form (just let me know how you did).  That's it!! I am gonna pick a winner Friday, Good Luck!

That last picture is amazing. Your eyes are gorgeous! I really like that outfit, personally I think it might look better with shirt with a smaller neckline? I like boat necks most with scarves like that! Great post overall!

Very very cool! Looks great on you!! I am really into the smokey eye lately too. Have to do a bit less than you. My super fair skin looks like I got beat up if not, haha. I would LOVE to win a smokey eye set. Especially since you rave about the new ELf products. Even if that means I have to wait until I get back home to use it, lol.

Totally want to win this because I never had been able to try it!!

Do you always have to wear silver/black for the smokey eye? Or can there be color too?

I would love to win this. The eyelashes,especially, are a big reason i want to win this. I have such little eyes. I would love something to help make them bigger.

Melissa said...

I follow you of course! and I would love to try this look, although I always seem to go too dark with a smokey eye. But this looks easy, and of course I would LOVE to win! :)

Alisha said...

I started following this summer when I saw your France tour post! (I went 2x this summer and loved every minute!!)

I would totally try this look. The hardest thing would be to feel comfortable enough to wear it out to anywhere but a club!

And ZOMG the eyelashes and final look are smokin'! (haha pun intended!)
