Bronze Smokey Eye ala Kim K

I've sucked at posting lately... yikes! This past month and a half have been pretty busy for me so I've been taking advantage of my spare time by laying in bed and watching movies, ha ha.
But I've crawled out long enough recently to create a few looks that I have coming up for the next few weeks so stay tuned!

Here's a really simple and pretty golden smokey eye that works great on all skin tones, eye shapes, and eye colours... enjoy!

1 Apply foundation all over and concealer in areas of concern. Set with a translucent powder.
2 Buff bronzer through the backs of the cheeks, onto the temples and around the hair and jaw line for a natural sun kissed look. Apply a peachy blush to the cheeks.
3 Pat and eyeshadow primer all over the lid to enhance colours and wear.
4 Blend a light gold shadow onto the inner three fourths of the lid from the lash line, fading out into the crease. 
5 Apply a black eyeshadow onto the outer third of the lid and then blend it out slightly past the crease for a smokey effect. Bring this black shadow down along the outer half of the lower lash line.
6 Lightly blend a matte skin toned shade around all of your edges with a fluffy brush to help further defuse your edges for a perfectly blended, smoked out finish!
7 Line the upper and lower waterline (inside of the eye) with a black pencil, making sure to wrap around the inner corners and to get into any gaps between the lashes.
8 Apply a few generous coats of mascara to both the top and bottom lashes.
9 Finish by applying a peach-pink gloss to keep with the bronzy, sun kissed theme!
