Motives Monday/ Basic Smokey Eye

Today's tutorial is a basic smokey eye.
Step 1 I used Motives Creme Shadow Gold Dust. I love this shadow, its water proof and its a great base for pressed shadows. It is also so pretty just wearing it on its own. 
2nd step I used the Black Tie shadow as my second primary color. This color is a shimmery grey. I applied it only to my lid.
The 3rd shade is the Hazelnut which is also a shimmery color. It is used as the contouring color. I blended this in my crease and made a v shape on the corners of my eyes.
I am still trying to improve my skill when it comes to taking pictures. I am having a hard time getting so close to the eye and capturing the exact color of the eye shadows without making it blurry. I realized I need to get another special  lens that can handle this performance. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. 
Many blessings to all my lovely readers!
In Christ
