Duos Smokey Eye Tutorial

Some simple and easy things that you will need for this gold and grey eye makeup look are as follows:

  • A concealer and foundation
  • A face compact
  • Eye shadow (Colours needed matte gold , shimmer grey or burnt shimmer grey , Burnt shimmer brown, silver highlighter)
  • Kajal pencil/Black liner pencil
  • Liquid Eye Liner
  • Mascara
  • Lash Curler
  • Lash Comb

Step 1: On clean eye lids, apply concealer and foundation. Follow it up with a compact for a flawless texture. If your eye lids are not clean then the dirt and grime on them will not let you flaunt a perfect makeup look. It’s very important that your eye lids are clean and oil free.

Step 2: Apply the matte gold on to the crease part. Do not extend it to the lid or brow bones. Keep it just till the crease.

Step 4: Take another clean applicator, so that colours do not get mixed. Now use the Shimmer grey colour on to the remaining 1/3 of the eye lid. You can either extend or not extend the shadow upwards in a tail. I am not extending it. It’s totally a personal choice for this specific eye makeup. Swipe the applicator over the crease also to cover the golden tinge with a slight hue of grey.

Step 5: Use the silver highlighter shadow on to the whole of the brow bones and at the nose eye junction. Using silver highlighter on the brow bones makes them pop out and give a glowing look to the area of the eye. This is especially important if you have dull eyes.

Step 6: Use the liner pencil on to the lower rim. You can do this with a nice kajal too.

Step 7: Use your liquid liner on to the upper rim. There is no need for a tail extension if you have extended the shadow .If however you have not extended the shadow base like I have not, and then a simple tail is good to go. Do not over do a Smokey eye makeup. Smokey eye makeup is a range of dark eye makeup where the priority should be the shadow and not your liner.
