Today I’m doing a look and tutorial for the Smokey grey eye makeup Kristen Stewart wore to the screening of her upcoming movie On the Road. I had recently posted her look in the Celebrity Face of the day feature and some of how had requested a tutorial for the same.
The look is a classic smokey eye using grey and charcoal shades paired with a contoured cheek, natural warm blush and a nude lip. Now this isn’t my favorite kind of look but it is a versatile look and can be worn with many outfits, for many occasions. Hope you found this tutorial useful!
Products used for this look :
- Sleek Bad Girl eye shadow palette (marked shades)
- Lakme eyeconic kajal
- Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara
Step 1 : Start by lining the upper lash line and waterline with jet black kohl. Apply a piece of sello tape at the outer corner as shown. This will help in getting a clean wing and will prevent over blending on the eye shadows.
Step 2 : Using a brush or q-tip, smudge the kohl applied as shown.
Step 3 : Now apply more kohl on the outer half of the lid where we want the smokey black look.
Step 4 : Soften the edges of the kohl applied in the previous step using a brush.
Step 5 : Apply a frosty champagne shade in the inner corner of the eye. I have used the shade marked 1 in the Sleek palette.
Step 6 : Apply a grey tinged silver (shade no. 2 in the palette) to the inner 1/2 of the lid as shown.
Step 7 : Apply a darker shimmer grey (shade no. 3 in the palette) to the outer 1/4th of the lid leaving a small area at the outer corner.
Step 8 : Apply a matte black in the outer corner of the lid and along the outer 1/3rd of the lower lash line as shown. Using a fluffy blending brush, soften the colors in the socket line using wind-wiper motion along the crease.
Step 9 : Using the same kohl pencil (Lakme eyeconic), line the upper lash line as shown.
Step 10 : Apply the grey-tinged silver (shade no. 2 from the palette) along the inner half of the lower lash line. Apply shade no. 1 (highlighter) under the brows.
Step 11 : Remove the piece of sello tape.
Step 12 : Darken the outer most corner of the eye with more black eye shadow and finish the look with a coat of dark black volumizing mascara.
Clean up any fall out from the eye shadow from the under eyes, apply concealer and fill in your brows.
You’ll see that I’ve made the look a little more wearable but you’re welcome to intensify the black on the lower lash line all the way in to the tear duct as Kristen has done. Pair these eyes with your favorite nude lipstick and a natural blush. I’m wearing MAC Melba blush and Make Up For Ever Mat lipstick no. 4.
