Simple Grey Smokey Eyes

A simple grey smokey eye is flattering to everyone. For a day look or for a dinner out I would normally wear this matte however using shimmery shades and glitter amps up the look for a party.

So this uses the Smashbox ‘On the Rocks’ palette and the main lid shade is the cool lilic grey shade and this is just to add a bit of dimension to the eyes. On camera it is very noticeable however in real life it is subtile and you can just see a slight shimmer.

All the shade that I used I used slightly wet and this really helped with application as the shades were very pigmented and also it blends really well when wet as well. I mainly used a pencil brush to apply and then a thick and fat blending brush to blend out.

Then I used the grey and the black to blend out to the desired intensity and to match my eye shape. I won’t go in to too much detail on what I did because it is very personal and use your eye as reference and use as much black or grey to what you like.
