Signature Smokey Eye

I know there have been a billion tutorials on smokey eyes but I thought I would share my signature smokey eye.  Perfect for a night out but not too overdone- I try to avoid looking like a raccoon!  Primer is so important and just finding the right browns or grays to make the look work.  If you have light hair- browns and purples are softer than blacks and grays. A colored liner also adds an extra pop! 🙂
