Its hard to keep away from smokey eyes. It is just sooo pretty ! But during the day it could look a bit much if done all the way. A little restrain on the dark shadow used for the look will keep it appropriate for the day.

For this look I used the cream liner from Earthen Glow Minerals. The cream liner is not very creamy / oily which makes it great as a base for eyeshadow. It its too creamy, it creases easily and ruins the whole look. This one works great as a base but doesn't stay on for very long on the waterline.

What I did for this look was :

1. Apply a thin layer of cream shadow / liner all over your lid. Do not pull it into your crease or onto the inner corner.
I used Earthen Glow Minerals Cream Liner in Mayan.

2. Use a deep blue / deep green / charcoal shadow over the liner in dabing motion. Use very little of the dark shadow.
I used Thevi Matte Eyeshadow in Charcoal

3. Avoid using the dark shadow or liner along the lower lash line. Instead use a bright color like a bronzy / gold / copper shade.
I used Urban Decay Eyeliner in Lucky.

4. Apply a coat of mascara and you're done !

The mini lip gloss wand in Cambridge is a pretty color for day and night. Just the perfect shade to pair with a smokey eye !

Hi Mugdha !
Me too ! It feels vey different on the lips compared to other glosses. Almost like applying butter on your lips.
