My latest Taupe-tastic Tuesday was all about Guerlain Holy Smoke loose eyeshadow. It is one of my most favorite taupes and it was quite popular with all of you as well. I had several requests to show a look using the eyeshadow so I decided to go ahead and do a look with it for you!!
I am a big fan of a nice, softened smoky eyes so that is what I tend to do on myself most often. I did a small winged eyeliner as well.
I did go to work today so I wanted to keep it very conservative with all of the products I used…
Please excuse my crazy hair. It has been a horrendous mess of weather lately and I wasn’t too concerned with styling my hair this morning because I knew it would be a rat’s nest as soon as I walked out my front door.

Lots of products for such a simple look, don’t ya think? My looks may look very common and ordinary but I honestly put a lot of love into creating my looks and trying to hide the bad and emphasize the good. Hope you guys enjoyed this look. I don’t do these types of post as often as I used to but I do enjoy being able to show you guys what makeup I am wearing lately and what it actually looks like on me. I think one of the reasons I don’t post more FOTDs is because I feel like I do a lot of similar looks, just switching out the products… I hate to bore you all but I know what looks work best for me. Let me know if you would like to see more looks from me in… and if so, anything specific?
