Bright and Smoky Eyes for Back-to-School!


The liner, although perfectly lovely, was a little pink for my preferences in this look. So, I layered it with a peachier lipstick, and the color I got was something in between and exactly what I was looking for. Hooray! This lipstick is Smashbox Latte and it has a matte finish, so you might try adding a lip balm if your lips are dry. I like the way the matte texture and nearly-nude color lets the eyes have the attention without disappearing completely.
