Summer Smokey-eye!

Hi everyone today, hope you all had a great weekend! I am a big fan of smokey-eyes however when its really summery its nice to waver away from those really dark smouldery shades. Today I am sharing my smokey-eye which I think suits the summer time, its still a little grungy without being too dark and its also more on the warm toned side too. 

Using Ardell Demi Wispies
Using Stila in the light Palette

MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Rimmel Translucent Pressed Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze
L'Oreal Blusher in Sandalwood Pink
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl

I applied the foundation all over the face with a beauty blender then concealed the under eyes with the concealer and set that area only with the pressed powder. I contoured using the Benefit Hoola bronzer, then used the Rimmel bronzer to warm up the face. I finished with applying blusher to the cheeks then the highlighter.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Ash
Stila In The Light Palette shades, Bliss, Sunset and Sandstone
Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel
MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
Ardell Demi Wispies False Lashes

I started my using the concealer as a primer then filled in my brows. For the eye shadow I started off my using Bliss in the crease as a transition shade, I then used Sunset all over the lid. I used Sandstone then into the crease and outer corners to darken it and used a fluffy brush to smoke it all out. I followed the same concept for the lower lash line using a mix of all three shadows and blended it out. I also made sure I blended all around the outer corners of the eye so all the eye shadow met and blended around creating the rounded smokey effect. I lined the top lash line with the stilla pencil and then the lower water line with the MAC Teddy pencil. I finished by applying mascara to the top and bottom lashes then applied my false lashes.
