I was inspired by this look, which she calls Everyday Sexy Eye.
Instead of using the Coastal Scents 88 Warm palette, I used my NYX Smokey Eye palette (swatches in this post). It's been getting more love lately, as I did feature it in my July favorites. I'm trying to find more ways to use it (and get over the fact that the shadows aren't as great as I would like...).
These pictures were taken in direct sunlight with my iPhone 4.
I really do like the way it turned out with my glasses, but of course it looks great with or without glasses.

I hope you guys enjoyed this little look! I think it turned out to be really pretty.
If you haven't checked out Beauty Broadcast, I definitely recommend it! Emily is my absolute favorite!
ALSO, do you guys have any suggestions for birthday makeup? My birthday is on Friday (the 10th) and I have no clue what to do for my makeup. I'm going out to dinner with my parents and my best friend as a little low-key thing because I am busy packing up for college (leaving very soon!). There will be more festivities once I get to school.
Thank you for reading, following, commenting, and supporting! Let me know what you think!
