Next to brown, my favorite smokey eyes rendition would be gradient purple. Meaning, varying purple hues either in intensity or color. I try to keep it subtle for my day job by applying and blending the eyeshadow light-handedly and by smudging the eyeliner pencil along my upper and lower lash line. I also skip cat-eyes and opt for nude lipstick for a softer look.
For this face of the day, I used my less than stellar Marc Jacobs 202 The Tease Eye Con No. 7 Plush Eyeshadow Palette. A more detailed review can be found here.
