Valentines day look: Silver Smokey eye

Valentines day is just around the corner, and its a perfect time to whip out a dramatic, sultry look!

1. Start with applying eye primer. This will keep the eyeshadows from creasing and the colors vibrant.

2. Apply a light gray shadow all over the lid and blend it thoroughly.  

3. Add a dark gray shadow into the crease and blend. I know, it looks like a hot mess, but just keep going, it gets better!

4. Add a black shadow into the crease, but keep it concentrated just in the outer "V". Use a matte skin toned shadow to blend the edges of the crease.

  5. Pack on a bright silver shadow on the inner corner of the eye, and blend it softly on the lid- avoiding the crease area. Then add black winged liner!

 6. Use the dark gray shadow under the lower lashes, and the bright silver on the inner 1/3 of the lower lash line. 

 7. Apply a black liner into the lower waterline.

8. Apply several coats of mascara on the top and bottom lashes!

9. Finish off the face with a light contour on the hollows of the cheeks, a soft blush, and a natural glossy mouth!

The final look!
