Love this clean fresh Daytime Smokey Eye look? Here's how to do it -
SKIN: 1) Start with well-hydrated skin from inside + out. I’m up to 72oz water daily + I use @skyniceland Cloud Cream moisturizer.
2) Skip the foundation. Go for a liquid bronzer I love the sheerness of @drhauschkausa
to add warmth to complexion (put it where sun naturally hits + BLEND). Add concealer if you like —my personal style is to show off my great skin not cover it up. 

EYES: The trademark to a Smokey Eye is eyeliner in waterline (bottom and/or top). Try a deep plum from @chantecaille. Smudge any color eyeshadow —here for daytime I use a light platinum shimmer with a plum base by @lancomeparis. Deep enough for definition (plum color pops blue green brown eyes) yet shimmer reflects + keeps light. Use same on lid blending from lashes + into eyeliner for more dense color emanating from lashes (makes ‘em look thicker). Add a stroke of brown or brown-black mascara *I rarely use mascara; my lashes are dyed.

CHEEKS: Pop a pastel peachy-pink cheek cream like @kevynaucoinbeautyfrom the top of apples blended back + out.

LIPS: Keep lips light —it’s Daytime + your skin looks amazing today! Here I use a color with undertones that mimic my natural lip (also seen in my cheeks). @maccosmetics —I confess it’s my fav lip brand!
