Kim Kardashian Red Lips Smokey Eyes

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another Celebrity Inspired Tutorial.  Today i'm using Kim Kardashian as my inspiration.  I saw a picture of her rocking bronzey smokey eyes and red lips, a hot combo!  The best part of this look is that it's so simple, I actually just used 3 eyeshadows and some black liner.  In this look, I'll again be featuring products from one of my favorite professional makeup lines Graftobian.

Pretty much everybody I know loves Kim Kardashian's makeup.  She's teamed up with some amazing makeup artists who have definitely taken her makeup to the next level.  As I was browsing the internet, I cam across a picture that made me stop for a second.  It was for some ad campaign, and Kim was rocking some red lips and a smokey eye.  Pretty, but done before right?  After some examination, I saw that the eyes mainly consisted of a brown shadow on the lids and smudged black eyeliner.  From afar though, it looks so technically complicated and intricate.  I thought that this would be a great tutorial for my viewers who want to pull out a flawless smokey eye but don't have a pro handy.  The look is super easy!

Unfortunately, I couldn't find the original picture of Kim that was the source of my inspiration.  Believe me, I looked for hours, lol.  Here's a similar look but it's not exactly the same.
