Smokey Dark Grey and Green Eye Makeup Tutorial

Since the festive season is up, here’s a smokey green eye makeup that you can easily create all by yourself. Full tutorial with pictures below:

The products I have used are:
Makeup Products

1. VOV eyebrow powder set ( both for filling eyebrows as well as for the dark grey on the eye lid)
2. Garnier BB cream for priming
3. Maybelline hypercurl mascara.
4. Elle 18 eye sparkler in green grenade.
5. Elle 18 kajal.
6. Streetwear eyeliner
7. A beige eyeshdow from a local brand palette.
8. A shimmery light grey eyeshadow from the same palette.

Step By Step Tutorial:

Step 1:

Prime your eyes with the primer of your choice. For all those like me who do not own a primer, you can substitute it with foundation, concealers, compact powder, BB creams, anything which works best for you.

Step 2:

Fill the eyebrows with a dark brown or grey eyeshadow and groom them.

Step 3:

Take a beige eyeshadow (something which is two shades lighter than your skin tone) and highlight the area under the brows. Strangely, orange based beiges like the one shown suits me like anything, although my skin tone is much lighter than this.

Step 4:

Now, take some shimmery light grey on a flat brush and dab on the inner half of the upper eye lid.

Step 5:

Take matte black eye shadow or a dark grey one and create a “v” on the outer edge of the upper eyelid and extend the line to the crease.

Step 6:

Using the same matte eye shadow on a fluffy brush, blend out the harsh lines. Keep in mind not to cover the shimmer grey inner part completely.

Step 7:

Draw the usual winged line with black eyeliner. Make sure the line isn’t too thick.

Step 8:

Put kajal on the waterline and also to tightline the upper waterline. Be generous with the amount.

Step 9:

Use a creamy pencil in green and draw a thick line on the lower lash line. You can change the green with any other color you want. If the pencil isn’t smudge-proof, be sure to set the line with a touch of green eye shadow on top of it.

Step 10:

Apply a single coat of mascara.

And you are done lady! 😉 😀

This is how it should look. Neetu, I hope I could help you.  I don’t have a proper matte black eyeshadow as yet, and so could not do it with the same. I hope you understand, just skip the grey and use black if you wish to. Others please let me know what kind of looks you would want from me, take care beauties!

    1. Thanks jomol 😀 i have already done ‘festive golden n green eye make up tute’. Do chk that out. Meanwhile i will try out a different look with d same combo for u 🙂

  1. lovely eye makeup Aparaita…this one will look good for natural smoky look also if green is eleminated.
    Somehow the colour below my lower lash line vere showes up, so I apply everything on eyelids only 😀

    1. Thanks sweta 🙂 i added d green coz i remember neetu mentioning a saree with green border once 🙂 it may as well be eliminated. Thanks anyway, love ur tutes too 🙂

  2. That is perfect really. Question for u girls – Since i have dark circles and i do manage to conceal it pretty well is it still a good idea to apply on the waterline below? My eyes do have tired look after 3 to 4 hrs without eyeliner/pencil so basically will the eyeliner make it look worse?

    1. thanks aru ji 🙂 well, since your eyes look tired after 3 to 4 hours, just use the kajal lightly on the waterline( notice mine is well below the waterline) and then apply a thin line wth a green pencil ( elle 18 eye sparklers cannot be used then), or use a green eye shadow on a pencil brush and draw a line. it will look good, trust me 🙂

        1. Thanks so much. Will certainly try that. I love kajals but was kinda hesitent to try it cos was afraid that my eyes would look even darker if it smudged but now will give it another try.

  3. Another awesome tut Aparajita…U have got most beautiful eyes in world 

    Can you please do an eye make up tut for black net saree with red and green border. Its one of my fav saree and I never understand what eye make up to wear with it

  4. Aparajita, only u can do this type of flawles smudge work.
    hats off to you yar.
    One request I (most of the ladies here , i am sure)would like to see video tutorial. Like to see how you smudge and apply so cleanly and neatly.

        1. mdration bhaisahab is gussa on me 🙁 anyway, thanks manisha.. chck out my post “office wear eye make up tute” its easy peesy 🙂

  5. superb didi…beautiful eyes..damn…one question though how do you wipe out fallout from eye shadows? my face gets all glittery when i try something like this so i only use eye pencils mostly…please let me know

    1. hey dharani thanks 🙂 i don’t have that problem thankfully as i dab my eyeshadows instead of moving the brush to and fro on the lids 🙂 n not all eye shadows have fall outs. n at the end, if there r some fall outs, i take a large powder brush, use some compact powder and brush all across my face 🙂 that clears it up

  6. no mac or inglot or colorbar eyeshadows…. just with elle 18 and vov u can do this!!!! … awesome eye make up… <3

  7. Wow.. so so beautiful … I have never attempted eye makeup though I am 25 :(… Its only kajal and eyeliner that is all wt I need.
