Step By Step: Neutral Smokey Eye Look!

Hi Ladies! The other day I was doing my make-up and I thought why not do a blog post on it! So I took a few step by step pictures to show how I did my eye make-up using the Wet 'n Wild 'Comfort Zone' palette, which was in my recent New York Haul post. I went for a neutral smokey eye just using the four shades on the left of the palette, as you can see the shades are named as to wear to put them i.e 'browbone, eyelid...' You don't have to follow the instructions but I basically did without realising! 
 Step 1
 I took the brow bone shade on a MAC 217 and applied this to my inner tearduct area and towards the middle of my eyelid and  then applied some to my Browbone.

Step 2
I then took the 'Eyelid' shade and applied this with the same 217 brush to the middle of my eyelid.
Step 3
Then I applied the 'Crease' shade with a Real Techniques 'Base Shadow Brush' to the outter part of my eye and blended through the crease bringing it quite far in towards the inner part of my eye. Then I took a bigger fluffy blending brush - Mac 224 to really blend the edges and give it a softer look.
Step 4
I then took the darkest shade in the palette 'Definer' and applied this with a Mac 217 to the outer V and blended through the crease, I didn't take it as far through the crease as the 'Crease' colour just concentrated more on the outer V to deepen up the colour a little bit.
Step 5
With a Mac 266 brush I applied the 'Eyelid' shade on my lower lash line mainly in the centre and towards the tear duct, and the 'Crease' shade to the outer part of my lash line, the the 'Definer' shade on top of the 'Crease' colour but closer to the lash line, then blend.
Step 6
Then using a Mac 219 brush I applied the 'Browbone' shade to the inner tear duct area to highlight.
Step 7
Then I applied a thin line of Bobbi Brown's gel eyeliner in 'Black Ink' on my upper lashline, I didn't winged it out I just wanted to define my lash line a little.
Step 8
I then applied the Covergirl clump crusher mascara to my lashes and lined my waterline with Rimmel's Scandaleyes eye pencil in 'Nude'
