Easy soft green smokey eyes for everyday

Hello Everyone

Hope you all had a great. I can't believe its Friday already. I had a relatively hectic week and I also have a Saturday working this week. Anyways, in between I sneaked some time and tried this soft green smokey eyes, which turned out quite well. So, thought why not share with you all. This is quite easy to achieve and you can also replace the green with any other color of your choice. Also, as I always say you don't have to have the exact same products to recreate this look. You can use whatever you have and you like.
