Lip makeup

As you can see, I’ve already prepared my face with lip makeup and I’ve completed one of my eyes.

I’m going to show you how to achieve this glamorous look.

Applying eyeshadow

1. Apply gray eyeshadow to the socket

Apply soft gray eyeshadow into the socket line of your eye.

Applying eyeshadow

2. Apply pewter and charcoal eyeshadow to the crease

Add a mix of pewter and charcoal eyeshadow to the crease.

Use a smaller brush for this as the charcoal is quite dark and we’re going for a light, glamorous smokey look for this evening eye makeup.

3. Blend

Use a small blending brush in circular motions to blend the pewter and charcoal eyeshadow.

Use the eyeshadow brush to get rid of any distinct lines.

4. Apply a silver shimmer to the inner corner

Apply a silver liquid shimmer to the corner of your eye to get that glamorous look.

Use a small eyeshadow brush to smooth out the shimmer and create a thinner layer.

Lining eyes

5. Line your lash line

Line your lash line with a dark gray soft eyeliner. 

Setting liner

6. Use charcoal eyeshadow to set the liner and lift the eyes

Apply charcoal eyeshadow over the eyeliner with a wedge brush to set it so it doesn’t move at all during the evening.

I tend to do this because my eyes water a lot, and this trick helps keep my makeup in place. 

Lifting eyes

Draw it out a bit upward to give your eyes some lift.

7. Apply charcoal gray eyeshadow under the eye

Using the wedge brush, apply a little of the charcoal gray below the eye to give the makeup a more smokey look.

Curling lashes

8. Curl your lashes

Squeeze the eyelash curlers at the base of the eyelashes and then slide them down to the tip of your eyelashes.

Applying mascara

9. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes

Wiggle the mascara up from the base of the lashes. 

Applying mascara

Repeat on the bottom lashes. I also added another coat to the top.
