Today I’m doing a Smokey Silver eye makeup tutorial using L’oreal Paris makeup products. I have a lot of favorites from L’oreal’s eye makeup range and I’ve used those here to create this look. All you need is 2 Infallible eye shadows (from the new L’Or Electric range), a kohl pencil, liner and mascara to create this simple party look!
What you need to create this look :
(All products except 6 & 7are from L’oreal Paris)
- Infallible eye shadows : Flashback Silver, Eternal Black
- Gel liner : Black
- Pencil Perfect Self Advancing eye liner : Ebony
- Super Liner Instant Impact Felt Liner
- Volume Million Lashes Mascara (Extra-Black)
- An eye lash curler
- Makeup Brushes (not pictured)
How to create this look in 8 Easy Steps :
Step 1 : Using a flat stiff brush, apply black gel liner all over the lid and soften the edges before it sets using Q-tips. Alternatively, you can use the kohl pencil to apply the black base on the lid.
Step 2 : Apply eye shadow in Flashblack Silver from the inner corner + tear duct area to the end of the lid leaving just the outer corner of the lid.
Step 3 : Apply eye shadow in Eternal Black at the outer corner of the lid as shown.
Step 4 : Using a soft fluffy brush (Like MAC 217 or Faces blending brush) blend the eye shadows in the crease till the harsh lines are smoothed out.
Step 5 : Tightline the eyes with the Self Advancing Eye liner (black kohl) pencil. Tightlining simply means applying kohl to the upper as well as lower waterlines. Lining the upper waterline gives the eye lashes a denser look.
Step 6 : Using a pencil brush (like MAC 219), apply Eternal Black to the lower lash line leaving the tear duct area (where the silver is). Apply a light dusting of Flashblack silver under the brow bone, make sure to use very little product, we just want a hint of shine here when the light hits the browbone.
Step 7 : Using the Instant Impact Felt Liner, line the upper lash line as shown. You can add a flick in the outer corner for a winged/cat eye look.
Step 8 : Curl eye lashes (very important!) and finish off with the Volume Million Lashes Mascara!
Clean up any fall out from the eye shadows using a moist cotton pad and apply concealer under the eyes and foundation all over the face and neck. Set with Powder, apply a natural shade of blush and finish off the look with a nude lipstick/lipgloss!
Here’s how I wore this look :
