I am more into colorful eye shadows but at the same time I am crazy for smokey eyes!
I have shared this Shades of Gray look with you few days back and here comes the step by step tutorial for this eye look.
Steps to Achieve this Smoldering Silver Smokey Look:
- Start with prepping your lids with a concealer and primer.
- To amplify the bright silver look, go for a white eyeshadow base. I used NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk and lined my upper lashline.
- With a smudger brush, blend the shade over the middle of lid where we are going to apply the silver eyeshadow.
- Using a Flat Shader brush, pick up a Metallic Grayish Silver eyeshadow and with a patting motion, apply it over the lids, until you achieve the desired color payoff.
- For a smokey outer corner, we will go for an intense matte black eye shadow. Dab the Pencil Smudger brush in the black and define the outer V-corner.
- Blend in the black with silver with a Small blending Brush. We need to maintain the outer-V shape to move the brush in small strokes to keep the definition. Also, make sure black is restricted to outer third of the eye.
- Apply kohl on the lower waterline and outer third of the lower lashline.
- Pick up the same Pencil Brush and smudge black eye shadow over the lashline, leaving inner third of the lower lashline.
- With an Angled Shading Brush, apply the same silver eye shadow on the tear duct and inner third of lower lashline.
- Time to line the upper lashline with your favorite black liner.
- I am not blending the crease as this looks demands a harsh edge. So, just highlight the brow bone with your favorite highlighter.
- Define brows using a brow pencil/powder, I used Sleek Brow kit to tame those unruly hair, this step can be done in the starting as well.
- Curl the lashes and coat them black with mascara.
