Tutorial: Silver & Black Smokey Eyes

Dear readers,

During the past couple of months, I got into the habit of wearing red lipstick, and so I usually keep the eye makeup to a bare minimum.

I love smokey eyes for night time, so I thought of making up a quick tutorial for you all! I am no expert, but I love make-up <3

Step 1:

  •  Prime eyelids using an eye shadow primer
  • Cover your eyelids up to the crease with a soft black pencil

Step 2:

  •  Take a piece of tape and stick it beneath your lower lashes, following your natural eyeshape
  • Using a small blending brush or your fingers, blend the black eyeliner

Step 3:

  • Use a glittery silver shadow on the inner part of your eyelid and a matte black eye shadow on the outer part and blend well. This will help set the black base making it last longer. 
  • Remove the tape and clean off any fall outs with a wet or make-up wipe. (This is the reason that I do not apply any foundations/concealers when I'm doing a dark eye).
  • Line your bottom lashes with the black kohl eyeliner, and blend. 
  • Line your water line with the black liner and also tightline your upper lashes.
  • Line your top lashes with a liquid eyeliner
  • Put mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
  • Put on some fake lashes (if you don't want to use any it's ok - what I normally do is I use one lash and cut it in half with a pair of scissors and only use 1/2 per eye)

Step 4:

  • Put on a foundation, concealer and powder of your choice.
  • Use bronzer on cheekbones, temples and on the sides of your nose
  • Fill in your eyebrows
  • Put on some clear or nude lipgloss
  • ...and you're done!
