Smokey Brown Eyes (for night time)

I was very much into brown eye shadows at one point where I used it almost every single day for my eye makeup. I used it to smoke out any color instead of the usual black or I simply wore it by itself and an eye liner and I was out the door. I even used it for smoky eyes for night time.

The photo below is an example of how I would wear a smoky brown eye makeup. It's not too dark but still dramatic for night time. I actually wore it for my friend's birthday party at The Kress club in Hollywood last week.

To create the look:
 -I first prepped my eye lids with Udpp (urban decay primer potion) to prevent the colors from creasing.
-Then, I applied a shimmery light pink all over the lids up to the brow bone.
- Using a blending brush or a fluffy crease brush, I applied a shimmery taupe e/s above my natural crease doing a wind shield wiper motion. This would create a faded effect (make sure its well blended and apply with a light hand).
- I intensified the crease with a dark brown matte e/s with a tad of a plum e/s (Mac Sketch).
-Lastly, I used a blending brush to blend all the colors together.
