With so many different eye makeup looks that change from season to season, mastering the timelessly classic smoky eye effect and creating the latest colourful trends can be overwhelming at times even for the most skilled makeup artists. This is why this pictorial will show you a step-by-step guide on how to recreate the ever famous black-silver eye makeup look – ideal for any occasion!
Before you begin, apply makeup primer with infallible mattifying base to lock the shine in and enhance the final makeup result. Apply just a small amount on your skin, working outwards for a flawless looking texture.
Step 1: To make the eye shadow appear sparkling and pigmented you will need to apply silver eyeshadow on the inner corner of the lid and crease, leaving the other part of the eye lid empty.
Step 2: Then, apply darker silver shadow to the outer corner of your lid.
Step 3: Apply black eye pencil across your crease line while concentrating to the outer part of your lid. For this step, it’s best to invest in a nice creamy formula as this will help you in easy blending the product afterwards. Now, take an angled makeup brush and lightly blend the eye pencil upwards towards your eyebrow.
Step 4: With a help of firm and synthetic brush blend out the edges of the shadows. Your brush should be able to swipe soft edges without wiping the colour away.
Step 5: Take your favourite liquid eyeliner and apply a delicate line across your upper lash line, starting from the outer corner of your eye towards the inner.
Step 6: Next, take a small makeup brush and outline your lower lash line with a dust of black shadow.
Step 7: Last but not least, add several coats of your long-lasting mascara to wrap up the final smoky eyeshadow effect.
