My take on a slight smoky eye...

I work long, sweaty hours at the restaurant. Everyone always asks how my eye makeup lasts from 8 am until 10 pm, this is my secret weapon...
MAC eye primer in Nubile. The only counter I could find this at was the Nordstrom MAC. It's amazing and a little goes a long way. I bought it 6 months before my wedding, I wear it every day and I've still barely put a dent in it.

My other secret is my custom palette. You get to choose any 4 shadows and combine them in a palette designed just for you. Again a little goes a long way. These shadows will last you a long time. As you can see, I still have plenty and I've had mine forever. The four colors I picked are Shroom, Bronze, Brown Down and Carbon.
Ok now bare with me, I always do my eye makeup first and then the rest of my face. I was brave enough to do this without any makeup, so no poking fun. :)
First you apply the primer all over.
Then Shroom goes all over as well as your base.
Bronze is next in the crease and upper lid.
Brown Down is applied in the crease and inner eye.
Carbon is last in the crease for a little more drama. Then it's eyeliner. I swear by the Sephora brand in midnight black, it's the smoothest, creamiest eyeliner ever! 
Mascara is the love of my life. I never go without it. I actually think putting on mascara is the longest part of my makeup routine. Ha.
Then bronzer and blush for me and that's it! All done!
Happy day!
