Cara Delevingne is known for doing her own thing—and clearly, that applies to makeup too. The English model and actress was spotted out in London earlier today, rocking a full-on gray-black smokey eye in the middle of the afternoon which is truly inspirational.
Delevingne opted to keep the rest of her makeup pretty minimal—we spot a little blush and maybe some brow gel—allowing her eye makeup to shine through. The look is complemented by her double buns, which are equal parts fun and chic. Googling "daytime smokey eye" will direct you to a sea of shimmery taupes, golds and daytime-appropriate pinks, as if the night is the only time you can opt for a more dramatic moment. Clearly, that's not true.
If you needed permission to rock your deepest shadows during the day, consider this your blessing–and inspo!—next time you're choosing an eyeshadow look. See the makeup from every angle, below.
