Smokin Hot..

 After posting a tutorial type post up the other day on 60's Make-up, I decided to do another but with a smokey eye look! I am going to be showing you how to do a silver and black smokey eye, but you can change the colours. Try dark brown and gold with bronzed skin for a Grecian goddess look, deep plums and purples for a vampy eye, silver and lilacs for a spring time pastel eye, the list is endless!

 * Warning- Do your eye make-up before your face make-up!*

What you will need:

Eyeshadow Primer
Natural, matte cream coloured base shadow
White metallic eyeshadow
Light silver eyeshadow
Dark, gun mental silver eyeshadow
Black eyeshadow
Black cream liner
False lashes
Black kohl pencil

 Step One: Begin with the eye make-up first so that any powder fall out can be cleaned and base done afterwards. Apply an eyeshadow primer to the eyelid, all the way up to the brow. Stick a small amount of sellotape along the diagonal of your eye, meeting with the outer corner of your eye. ( You don't have to do this but it just gives the make-up a dramatic edge and is a good guide.)

Step Two:  Apply a light cream coloured eyeshadow as a base, all over the eyelid up to the brow. Then apply the light silver eyeshadow all over the eyelid and blend into the crease.

Step Three: Blend the darker silver/grey shadow front he outer corner inwards and into the crease. The do the same with the black shadow, this creates definition. Apply the metallic white shadow to the  inner corner of the eyes, to instantly brighten the eyes.

Step Four: BLEND, BLEND, BLEND and then line the eyes with a black, cream eyeliner, both upper and lower lash line. Apply black kohl to your waterline.

Step Five: Apply plenty of mascara to your lashes and add false eyelashes.

Finished look
Step Six: Remove sellotape and any powder fall out under your eyes and apply your base make-up, blusher, lipstick/gloss etc and you're done :)

 Pair with a nude lip and contoured cheeks. Here I used; MAC Lipstick in 'Imagine This' from the Christmas set and applied Collection 2000 Creme Puff Lip cream in 'Powder Puff 2' on top.

I used Sleek Face Contour kit in Medium to add definition the cheekbones,temples and jaw and Benefits Girl Meets Pearl highlighter on cheekbones to give a dewy glow.

Hope you found this post helpful. How do you wear your make-up on a night out?
