Shimmery Grey Black Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

by Bee on April 7, 2011 · 107 comments

Heyo,

How is everyone? Other than the scorching heat that is :( Well, it rained heavily here yesterday and looking at the clouds and the whole gray atmosphere, I thought of Komal’s request for her farewell and created this look!!

The look sums up as:

The colors from the palette that I’ve applied are:

So lets get started :D

Step1: Apply black eye pencil all over your lids.

grey black smokey eyes

Step 2: Smudge it with your finger or a brush.
Grey Black Smokey Eyes

Step 3: Apply a black eyeshadow over it. It can be shimmery or matte black.(Shade 1 from the kit) btw- in this look there can be a lot of fall-outs so you can either do the rest of your face after the eyes or apply a layer of face powder and then wipe off at the end.
Grey Black Smokey Eyes

step 4: Apply a Gray eyeshadow in the middle of the lid.(shade 2) at this point of time dont get scared if it looks a little hideous.. hehhee
grey eyeshadow

Step5: If you want a little more depth, take a pencil brush and some more black eyeshadow and just place it on the outer corner of the eye and make circles on the same spot.. like a big dot.
grey eyeshadow

Step 6: Now take a soft brown colour (2 shades darker than your skin tone) – shade 3 from the kit. and just apply all over the crease in widshield wiper motion. since we have applied dark lid color we dont want dark shades on the crease.

crease blend

Step 7: Apply a light highlighting shade (number 4 from the kit) to the brow-bone. Occassionally you can also bring it all the way to the inner corner of the eye.

highlight

Step 8: And After Lash’n’Line here’s the final look
lash line

complete grey black smokey eyes

Additional lashes would look great here but since you’ll be doing all masti its better you dont ;)

Hope you like the look!!!

Love,
BeeNii.

I have tried the Black smokey eye look, but grey, blues suit me much better…..Black requires lot of “correct” application, then only it looks gorgeous…I have spoiled it so many times……but I think a little grey shimmer on inner lid and little black shimmer on outer eyelid has bestest effect for me…..and you are right, It looks super sexy…

tnks a lot Preeti… Rati has done a post on brushes I guess.
As of now the Sigma brushes are the best in the Market and MAC ones if youre willing to spend.. Im using drugstore brushes as Im just beginning…

I had the VEGA brushes but honestly I didnt like them :(
you can check out online stores for them :)
