I’ve been relying on this look a lot this quarter. Whenever I’m flat out exhausted, my eyelids start doing weird things. Uneven eyelids make it impossible for me to line my upper lashline, so I try to do makeup that gives my eyes more definition. And what makes your eyes stand out? Smokey shadows! Of course, since this a day look, this is like the baby version of a smokey eye.

When I first bought this eyeshadow a couple of years ago, I was kind of disappointed with the shadow quality. None of them are very pigmented, and the white is slightly gritty. I’ve found that brushes don’t work very well with these shadows, which is fine by me because it means I get to be artsy. Finger painting time!
1. First, I filled in the inner 2/3 of my lid with the gray. It’s probably the smoothest out of the 3 shadows, but the pigmentation is total suckage. So don’t be phased, just go over it 7 or 8 times, and you’ll end up with something like this *Note: (if you own this trio, do not attempt this step with the white. You will eventually give up and top it off with the gray):
2. Next, I smoked out the outer corner with the black. No, it does not have to look neat.
3. I blended the gray and the black together with the white, which also added a teensy bit of glitter to the look.
4. Lastly, I finished it off with a quick curl from my eyelash curler, and lots of Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara.
All done! Definition and smokiness without any liner 😀
