Burberry A/W 2015 Runway | The Perfect Wearable, Modern Smoky Eye Makeup Look + Tutorials

Burberry has just released the most incredible smoky eye look for their Autumn/Winter Runway Show! We tend to think of traditional smoky eyes as ultra heavy on black kohl and glitter, but Burberry's rendition is as classy and wearable as could be. Wendy Rowe described the eye makeup as an "impression" of a smoky eye, a modern and edgy take. Though the color is sheerer, the smoky iridescent charcoal has so much impact! Her tip was to avoid going too dark on the upper lash line to prevent making the eyes look smaller. If you have narrow almond eyes as I do, avoid lining too close to the lower inner corner. I rarely layer eyeliner with powder eyeshadow on my lower lash line, so this is a departure from my standard eye look, but I think the overall makeup is genius! This is the kind of smoky eye makeup I could wear every single day. It's easy and surprisingly natural. I normally tend to stay away from this kind of casual, slightly smudged look (only 1 coat of mascara! gasp), but it just goes to show how fun it can be to switch up your routine and push the boundaries of your comfort zone! Many thanks to Burberry and Wendy Rowe for allowing me a preview of this gorgeous makeup and don't forget to watch the show live, here on the blog below! xo

P.S. The Cadet Green nail polish is divine! It's literally the best khaki nail polish I have ever worn. The formula is perfect in two standard coats.
