This was the day I put the Kiehl’s BB cream to the test (I reviewed it a few posts back). I didn’t have much planned apart from lunch with Anna, but because the BB cream is quite sheer I wanted to do a bit of a smokey eye. I spoke about the Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate in yesterday’s post and I’ve been loving using this recently. I apply it all over my face and it really smoothes out my skin and feels a bit like a primer. I really like the way makeup sits on it and so far I’m impressed! 
For my eyes I went for a brown smokey look, which always feels a bit much for the daytime but mixed with a light base on my skin and nude lips, I think it works. I gave the new Guerlain mascara a go (it comes in the cutest packaging) and it gave me fluttery, quite feathery lashes. On my cheeks a natural blush and on my lips a purple toned nude that I wore loads throughout the Summer. 
Simple, but quite nice for a lunch date I think!
What do you guys think?

    Smoky eyes look fab on your because you’re eyes are beautifully big! Your skin looks flawless though, and even though my skin isn’t terrible, i always think BB creams don’t ever do me any favours!

    I love this look. I’m usually pretty self conscious about a super strong eye (or a super bright lip) but I think this looks lovely. It works perfectly for the day or night. I have issues with eyeliner smudging and was wondering if you had any suggestions or tips.
