Face of the Day: Espresso Smokey Eye


Ah, autumn. Not only does it mean the promise of sweater weather, but it also means darker makeup looks and more smokey eyes. My makeup today wasn’t anything extraordinary, but it is my go-to brown smokey eye using MAC’s “Espresso” eyeshadow.


I decided to use MAC’s “Creme in Your Coffee” lipstick that complimented my shirt and the eye makeup. It’s the closest thing I have to the popular nudey brown Kylie Jenner lip look, but since it’s a cremesheen it doesn’t have the matte look.
