Smoldering Smokey Eyes: Chocolate Browns

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

Today I am back again with another tutorial. This look is a chocolate brown smokey eye with a little bit of shimmer, its perfect for the festive season! I decided I would do a "wearable" Christmas look first as the rest will be using glitters and cranberry shades, which may not appeal to everyone. You can't go wrong with a brown smokey eye in my opinion so on with the look :)

I picked up this beautiful Nyx palette in Tk Maxx recently, this shop is my favourite for bargain buys!
The vast majority of my Nyx palettes have come from Tk Maxx as they are usually a little cheaper. This is due to the fact that if I were to buy online its in pound sterling and I would also have to pay for postage. Unfortunately I can't buy Nyx in store in Ireland other than in Tk Maxx or River Island (to my knowledge) and the selection isn't great in either. 
I keep my eyes peeled for Nyx in Tk Maxx as I've picked up some great bargain buys over the last few years including this palette which I picked up for €6.99...bargain buy yet again!




This palette is from the Caribbean Collection and is I Dream Of St. Kitt.
Has a gorgeous array of browns to create the perfect smokey eye. The shadows are extremely pigmented I'm extremely happy yet again with my Nyx purchase.

Here is the look I came up with using this palette.
