Easy smokey eye! (Using all drugstore products)

Hey dolls,
As requested I've created this easy Smokey eye using the least amount of products and minimal steps possible for beginners. I also tried using all drugstore products so this look is very affordable and you may already have some of these makeup goodies in your makeup collection. I hope you all enjoy this look and please excuse the lighting, I'm working on getting a ring light soon. I will be listing all of the products used below and please don't forget to comment and subscribe. Stay tuned for more looks for less. As always I welcome any comments, requests and suggestions.

Thanks!

XoXo,
Alex
