Tutorial: Easy Graphite/ grey smokey eye


Hey “BD beauties”!

I’m back with a tutorial today and this is going to be a graphite Smokey eye! I always wanted to try the shade of grey but the lighter shade of grey never worked well for in fact, i wore a grey Smokey eye for my batch graduation for olevels and it was definitely washing me off! This type of eye makeup suites great for any skin tones so it is a very universal shade to play with.
In this tutorial I tried the Maybelline eyestudio quad in makeover mocha which is a very versatile neutral palette from which you can make day time as well as night time looks! Let’s get started!

Step 1
Prime your lids with a reliable primer (I’m using elf eyelid primer) and apply black kohl all over the eye lid keeping it below the crease. I find that this makes the shadow pop and also makes the shimmers stay in place.

Step 2
Apply the graphite shade all over the areas the kohl was applied and not taking it anywhere close to the crease.



Step 3
Using a medium shade of brown, blend the crease giving it a soft transition colour as the graphite shade should be the only shade standing out.

Step 4
Tight line and line your waterline to give the eyes a Smokey look.

Step 5
Draw a winged liner that is thin in the inner part and that slightly gets thicker outwards. Finish off the look with falsies and try the look with a lash with a thin band.

Did you notice that you just needed two shades for this look? It’s optional if you want a browbone highlight. I love how this shade looks on me and how it doesn’t wash me out as a lighter grey shade would. Do try this out!!!
