Simple Grey Smokey Eye

Hi Pretty Ladies!

How’s your Saturday coming along? I’m full of chinese food, watching the Cowboys game, and texting my bf updates on the score while he’s at work. It’s been a laaaazy day today, slept in until noon and have been in yoga pants and a hoodie all day. Ah, relaxing is awesome!

Anyway, I did a really easy smokey eye for work yesterday and wanted to share.

Products used:
Eyes:
Benefit F.Y…Eye! Primer
MAC Night Divine eyeshadow (gunmetal grey)
MAC Silver Ring eyeshadow (satin silver)
MAC Mylar eyeshadow (bone colored, not shimmery)
MAC Dazzlelight eyeshadow (shimmery off white)
Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
Stila Eye Kajal in Onyx
Sigma SS224 crease brush
Studio Tools medium shadow brush
MAC 217 pencil brush
Brows: filled with MAC Espresso eyeshadow

Face:
MAC Studio Sculpt concealer in NW15
Makeup Forever Mat Velvet+ in 20
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium
Smashbox Charm blush

Lips:
MAC Ample Pink plushglass

Start with a primer, and use the gunmetal color on your lid up to the crease.

Blend, blend blend! It should look like this.

Take a fluffy crease brush and blend the lighter silver into the crease and blend.

It will look like this

Clean off and use the same fluffy brush to blend a bone, matte, eyeshadow all along the brow. Make sure to soften any harsh lines from the dark colors on your lid.

It should be soft 🙂

Take a white-ish shadow with a little more shimmer and put it right under the arch of your brows. A single rebel hair made its way into the pic…

Also blend some into the inner corners of your eyes to brighten them up. Another hair wanted to be featured in the tutorial lol

Line along the top lashes. It’s up to you how thick/thin you want it, I also added a little wing to the end for more of a cat eye effect.

Take a black pencil and line your upper waterline. Hello crazy eye!

Also line your lower waterline. Don’t stab yourself in the eye like I did, it wont feel good…

Now take some more of the gunmetal shadow and blend it along your lower lashline.

Add mascara and you’re done!

Here’s the finished eyes and face. My bangs kept getting in my face everytime I took a picture, I hate when they act out lol.

Are there any colors you would like for me to use in future posts?

Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!
