FOTD | A CLASSIC SMOKEY EYE

I am back with another FOTD, this time its the basic smokey or rather a classic smokey eye makeup look. I have recently been really loving the smokey eye and have been trying a few different looks and have been playing around with different palettes. So I thought I will share this look that turned out really well and I really like the final look.

EYES

Becca Eye Ping Perfecter 
I used this as my base for the rest of the makeup, its a nude shade so its invisible once its blended into the skin
Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo - Bronze 
Since it was a smokey eye I like to use cream base so that the smoke eye looks really smoked out and its easy to blend

I used Faint as the setting shade to set in the cream shadow and blended it out then I used Crave which is a black on top of it create the smokey effect
Maybelline The Nudes Palette - The Matte Brown from the second row and the Matte Black from the second row and Shimmer Brown from the second row and the Shimmer Cream from the first row
I used the matte brown on top of the black and blended and then used the matte black on top again and smoked it out even more. I then used the Shimmer Brown on top to add a bit of sparkle and blended everything out. I used the Shimmer Cream shade just under the brow bone and in the inner corners of the eyes. On the lower lash line I used the Matte Brown and Matte black and blended it all out. 
Heroin Makeup Heavy Rotation Gel Eyeliner - Black 
I used this as the eye liner to give some definition

The eye makeup turned out way better than I expected and I was really pleased. I am definitely going to recreate this look for a date night out. Its simple not too over the top but still makes the eyes stand out. What did you think of my dramatic smokey eye makeup look? is it a good FOTD for any occasion?
