Makeup of the Night: Brown Smokey Eyes!

Hey everyone!
So I had to do a fundraising thing for cheerleading the other night and I was super excited about this makeup look that I did so I wanted to share it with you! To be honest, I don't really remember the exact shades that I used, but I'll try my best to remember and pass on that info to y'all! So let's get started. 

Face: I used a little bit of the balm's instain blush in swiss dot (a peachy shade) really lightly on my cheeks. 

Eyes: All of my shadows are from the balm's nude tude palette. On the lid, I used a shimmery champagne shade (standoffish). I then took a matte light brown shade and applied it in the crease for subtle definition (sultry). I patted a golden brown shade (sorry, I know that's such a bad description!) on the outer half of my lid (sophisticated). Its just slightly browner and deeper than the champagne shade. I used a little more of the champagne shade to blend so theres not definite line in the middle of your lid! I did my outer "V" trick (take a MAC 217, align upwards with lower lashline and swirl, then place in outer crease and swirl) using a deep matte brown (sleek) and took a matte black on the same brush and patted it where I wanted more smokiness (on the outer portions of my "V"). I also took that same black shade (serious) and smudged it into the lashline. I skipped the brow highlight, but I took a sparkly white and applied it to the inner corner (sassy) and smudged the deep brown on the lower lashline. I finished with a coat of clinique high impact mascara.

Lips: I took this picture after eating, so it wore off, but I used Stila lipglaze in "guava"

So I know that this is such a "the balm" heavy makeup tutorial, but I've been playing around with a few of their products and I didn't mean for it to be so featured in this post! Let me know if you have any post suggestions in the comments!
