Tutorial: How to Create Bold Metallic Smoky Eyes

Tutorial: How to Create Bold Metallic Smoky Eyes

One of the most popular looks in makeup is the smoky eye.  But don’t you get tired of doing the same old look?  Typically a palette of gray and black shadows and black eyeliner are the tools we depend on to complete our smoky eye look.  However, for spring, I suggest that you try a bright bold smoky eye.

In this tutorial, my model, Tatiana is showing the bold metallic smoky eye look.  We are using Urban Decay eyeshadows and loose pigments to create this look.

1.  Even skin with foundation and concealer.

CoverGirl Nature Luxe foundation #370

Make Up For Ever 5 Camouflage Cream Palette – No. 4

2.  Define brows


Prep eyelid with eyeshadow primer

3.  Apply color to lid

Product used:

Urban Decay Loose Pigment in Graffiti–bright green

4.  Apply color to crease and lower lash line

Product used:

Urban Decay Black Palette — Libertine eyeshadow

5.  Blend lid and crease colors so that there is no line of demarcation.

Blend, blend, blend!

6.  Liner upper eyelid and insider lower rim

Apply a sheer wash of  color to brow bone

Products used:

Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liner in Zero–included in the Black Palette kit

7.  Apply mascara (model is wearing her own false eyelashes)

    I really love what you did here ! You have right, smokey eyes are the most popular look of eye make up, and another thing- brown & black smokey eyes, are really so old and cliche look. 

    Nice work – bold, urban and fabulous !
