A Quick Eye Look for the Perpetually Tired or Uninspired Beauty Warriors

This may sound like a shock to you but even I have those weekdays where I just want to slick some lip balm on my lips, put my contacts on and call it a day. On the other hand, I love a challenge. So the other day, in a fit of losing my inspiration to paint my face I remember a tip I read about in Allure magazine. I want to share it with you.

For a quick polished smoky eye – line your top lash line with black eye pencil and line your bottom lash line with a brown pencil, then smudge that line.

This is a very easy look to pull off because I know you have these two eye liners already in your arsenal. I like this look best with taupe/nude lids but I’m sure it would look just as good with a charcoal or bronze. The nude lid is the easiest to do and least time consuming. Here I used a soft taupe shimmer shadow (Le Metier de Beaute, Corinthian) with MAC Omega (beige matte taupe) in my crease. I blended with a fluffy shadow brush, lined my lash lines, apply mascara and done. I think I want to try this with a smudge black liner – from lash line to lid crease for a super fast smoky eye.

Liners used:

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Perversion (deepest matte black) and Demolition (deep brown matte).

This simple eye look is also great if you want to focus on bronze skin and peachy tangerine cheeks/lips. I spent more time applying blush and bronzer than I did on my eyes.

Go ahead, hit that snooze button one more time!

Other colors used:

Cheeks: NARS Liberte Blush (burnished apricot), Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Bronzer, Daydream (medium golden tan with shimmer).

Lips: MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil Nice ‘N’ Spicy (rusty, pink beige), Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss, Papaya (peachy coral with pink shimmer).
