Tutorial: Deep Silver Smoky Eye

Like I've said before, I'm no pro. I've worked as a freelance MUA but am by no means anything more than an amateur cosmetic junkie who fancies herself as a bit of an artist. I hear giggles. So I really don't think I've got much to offer in the way of tutorials but I have had several requests for them so here's my first.

Products used:

Photobucket

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowCreme in Silver Leaf

Photobucket

Urban Decay BOS Vol. III - Uzi and Perversion

Photobucket

Christian Dior Mystic Smokys palette

Photobucket

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in BlackNoir
CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume in Very Black

Photobucket

e.l.f. 100 eyeshadow palette - 4th shadow up from the bottom left

Photobucket

Start with a silver cream base spread evenly across the lid so your shadow has something to adhere to and so the colours deepen slightly. Blend edges out. Wing out slightly for a more dramatic look and smudge along the lower lashline about 2/3 in.

Photobucket

Buff a bright, silver shadow over your base and blend any harsh edges.

Photobucket

Use a dark, blue based silver in your crease and outer "v". Darken the outer "v" with a matte black eyeshadow.

Photobucket

Buff a highlight shade close to your skintone over your brow bone and use it to blend out your edges.

Line your upper and lower waterline with a true black waterproof eyeliner. Use the same liner to thinly line your upper lashline to make your eyelashes look super thick.

Apply a volumising mascara, clean up any fall down and apply the rest of your makeup to complete the look.
