makeup tutorial: simple smoky eye

Hey everyone! Since another holiday has rolled around, I thought I would do a look that would be appropriate for parties or family gatherings or anything else you may be doing!

Products used:
Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool
wet n wild Don't Steal My Thunder Trio
Covergirl Liquiline Blast Liner in Black Fire
Milani Color Brilliance Eyeliner in green
Covergirl Professional all-in-one mascara

step 1: prime your lids

step 2: set the primer with a shimmery white shadow

step 3: line your top lashline with black and go crazy with the smudging ;)

step 4: sweep a silver shadow over the smudged liner and blend upwards to give it that "gradient" effect

step 5: with a black shadow, re-intensify the black liner by going over it. Also, smudge a little black shadow on the outer third of your lower lashline

step 6: line your upper lid with liquid liner and if you wanna get all fancy-shmancy like I did, give it a little flick and wing it!

step 7: This step is optional, but if you want to you can line your waterline with a fun color. I did green (the below photo does this liner no justice) and it kinda brightened the look up a bit.

step 8: make your lashes "dramatized!" With slow strokes, wiggle your mascara wand from the "root" of your lashes to the end. This method allows your lashes to get maximum volume :)

you are done!
^^^you can see the green liner a little better in this photo^^^
Simple, quick, and totally wearable. This look is pretty universal and will look great on pretty much everyone!
Hope you enjoyed!
