Everyday brown smokey eye makeup tutorial

It seems that the most beloved type of makeup ever is the smokey eye look. Everybody wants to master it, me included, so I’ve decided to show you my take on it – the easy day-time, brown smokey eye.

That only takes me 4 or 5 minutes and it looks natural enough to not worry about fixing anything later in the day.
