  One of my favourite make-up looks lately has been to opt for a neutral smoky eye, and pair it with pink gloss.  It's a classic feminine look, with a slight edge, that is pretty much timeless.  I also think it suits my lighter complexion and hair colour, in a way that a lot of make-up looks often don't (read: red lipstick).  To create the smoky eye, I did my usual neutral eye using my Urban Decay Naked Palette, then ran copious amounts of "Darkhorse" along the outer-v, using Scotch tape to create a clean line from my outer eye to the end of my eyebrow.  I added a classic winged liner, and a swath of pink gloss to top it off.  Easy to do, easy to pull off.
