Birthday Look:Brown Smokey Eyes

Saturday, January 10, 2015

Hello beautiful people!!How is the harmattan on your end? for my Nigerians..The dryness no get part 2! but anyway this is my first birthday post ever and i did this look the day before my birthday(jan 8).Ive been wanting to do brown smokey eyes but i thought i dint have the shades in my kit to pull off the look.
One day i was busy at home and i was thinking of browns i have till i realized i had 2 browns to make the look work.I wanted browns with different textures so i went for a metallic brown on the lid and a matte brown as a crease/transition colour.The strange thing about this look is as simple as it appears i used shades from about 5 different eyeshadow palettes.Really most times the simplest things take the most effort to be acheived.

I spent my birthday at home and my daughter cracked me up big time like she always does.She has been growing her vocabulary so much these days and she makes very adult-like gestures and statements.In all im grateful for life and growth and for the ability to spend time with the ones who truly love me.To everyone who left me birthday wishes on facebook,  instagram, mails,calls,texts, whatsapp I say thank you with all my heart and may you all see so many more beautiful years on earth.Amen!

Lots of Love..
