makeup tutorial: wearable everyday smoky eye

This is one of my favorite looks to wear on an everyday basis. Okay, I don't necessarily wear one makeup look two days in a row, but if I'm stumped, I go for something like this.
Let's get into it...

Everyday Smoky Eye
Products used:

step 1: prime your lids

step 2: apply a light base eyeshadow. I'm using the lightest shade from the Maybelline quad.

step 3: pat a light brown shade all over your lid.

 step 4: sweep a lightish-medium-greenish-brown in your crease. (I'm not great at explaining colors ;])

step 5: put a dark green-charcoal color in your outer corner and bring it in and smudge it on the outer half of your lower lashline.

step 6: apply a black gel liner onto your upper lashline. Make the line slightly thicker towards the outer corner of your eye. Add a wing if you want some extra flare!

step 7: Line your waterline with a black liner, and if you want to you can smudge some into your lower lashes for a little extra dimension and drama. (yes, I know this is supposed to be a wearable everyday look, but honestly, little touches like this will make your eyes pop)

step 8: apply a coat or two of mascara…
