Daytime Smokey Eyes with Eve Pearl Cosmetics

Hi Bellas!

I wanted to share a FOTD from a few weeks ago. I used all Eve Pearl products and really liked the way the look came out. My goal was to go for a light, wearable look...a daytime smokey eye. I felt like the makeup really enhanced my natural features. I wore it to Ikea feeling super glamorous :)

I used the items below:

First, I used the Priming Moisturizer. I love how this products saves time and is dual purpose.

Next I used the light/medium anti-shine in my oily spots - middle of forehead, nose, and cheeks. It's getting hot here in Atlanta...don't want to melt!

Then I applied the HD dual foundation in medium all over as my foundation and eyeshadow base. I used the dark side only since it was just light enough to cover my skin. Since i'm at my summer shade, I would need to go up the Tan foundation shade. I also used the Salmon concealer in medium to cover any dark circles. This product is amazing!

I love the saving and sleek compacts come with a velvet case to protect it from dirt and scratches. I used a mixture of the colors in the Diva Eyes Palette to get my look.

You know I gotta add my lashes! The Au Natural lashes do indeed look very natural -just the right amount of definition. The Black Lash glue is officially my new favorite lash adhesive. I used to swear by Ardell's black glue but this one dries so much quicker! That's a plus!

Next, I used the blush trio in medium. I used a fan brush to get all three colors to apply to my cheeks and up to my temples. The bronzer strip at the end is also great for contouring.

I finished it up with this gorgeous lipgloss duo. I used both colors. I forgot to include a picture of the Eve Pearl black liquid liner but I used that as's been my go to liquid liner.

The final look! I recommend clicking on the pics to expand them and see them in clearer detail.

This is definitely a very wearable daytime smokey eye...the colors were a refreshing break from my normal super bright dramatic looks. Check out these products at!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
