Our Lord made every women beautiful

She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her.

Bright eyed!

 This was a school day for me so I wanted to keep it simple (Im sure you tell by my *throw on a sweater!* attitude!).
Some people believe that a smokey look is too dark for daytime wear. I agree, sometimes this is way too harsh. However, I hardly ever wear a gray/black smokey eye and I felt the shades used were not too intense.

I have included a mini* tutorial of sorts on how to get this eyeshadow look.

My daytime smokey look.
I hate the way my lashes grew back
 after my run-in with the ELF lash curler!
 The lipstain I used was supposed to be a soft nude-y pink, but my lips already have a darker undertone so this looks a little darker on me than I would have liked.

I hope you enjoy the look!
