Silver & Black Smokey Eye Tut (Requested)

Hi girls.. :-)

A few days ago my friend Aksima misra wanted someone to do a look which she saw on an actress in a TV searial called "pyar ki ye ek kahani".Here is the reference picture that she posted on facebook..

This is what i came up with:

So here is the step by step photo tutorial on how i did this look:

Step 1: Apply an eyeshadow primer or base allover the eyelid and on lower lashline.

Step 2: Now take a shimmery/metallic greyish silver eyeshadow to 3/4th of the lid.Then take a matte black eyeshadow and apply it to the outer V.Bring that black shadow inwards towards the grey and blend them both togrther where they meet.Blend the black shadow in to the crease(If your eyes are large you can go all the way up to the inner corner of the crease or else take it only up 3/4th of the crease.)

Step 3: Apply the same silver eyeshadow to the inner corner and 1/4th of lowelashline and black to the remaining 3/4th.Apply a black kohl/eyeliner to both upper and lower waterline.For browbone area apply a little compact/loose powder or a matte eyeshadow close to your skintone to make it look clean and it also helps to blend out any harsh edges of the eyshadow above the crease.Then apply a black liquid/gel liner and line your upper lashline.Finally apply 2-3 coats of mascara and you're done! :-)

Apply a soft pink blush and a bubblegum pink lipstick or a pink lipstick that suits you.

Here is the finished look:

For fun i tried to imitate the expression on the actress's face! Hehehe :P :D

Products used:

       1) Coastal scents undercover HD foundation (mixed 12 and 3 shades)
       2) Ben nye banana visage poudre(to set the foundation)
       3) Pink blush from 10 blush palette.
