A daytime smokey look

It's been a while since I did anything about makeup look, and I thought I would do one.  Reason being I am not an adventurous person at all when it comes to applying make up so I've been sticking with the same products repeatedly for quite a while.  Today I felt a little more adventurous than usual and updated a few items in my makeup platter to create this soft smokey eyes look suitable for day time.

I also thought I'm no expert in make up so do excuse the imperfection lurking on my face, but if I can do it I'm sure you can replicate this look, too!
