Easy Everyday Smokey Eyes

Hi everyone! How's your Summer so far? I'm actually starting to enjoy it! I've been to two different resorts already with my Family and my boyfriend's family! Loving all the bonding and I had so much fun since it's been so long since I last took a swim! However, I'm still hating the weather here in the Philippines. It's just too darn hot! >.<

I was just planning to leave for the weekend (April 13-14) but my short vacation was extended so I've had a 5-day social media sites detox! The internet connection at our house in Tagaytay was poor so I didn't get the chance to do any updates or post anything here in my blog. However, before I left, I uploaded a quick and easy everyday smokey eyes video tutorial in my YouTube channel that you can finish within 5 minutes or maybe even less! Here's the look:

I paired the look with a brick shimmer blush and a peachy nude lip color. The brick blush gave me that bronzed look so this look in general is also perfect this Summer. Just be sure to use a primer and set your makeup with a makeup setting spray to ensure the longevity of your makeup since the weather here in the Philippines right now is insanely hot. I really can't stand it! >.<

Since the eye makeup is composed of brown shades, you can pair it with any lip color that you like. I just chose to use a nude lipstick this time since I thought I've been using a lot of loud lip colors these past months.
