Haven’t posted an eye make-up look trial for quite sometime now; but I managed to get this one out and wanted to share how it went.
My aim was to create a dark silver smokey look, with black, as I had just bought a black silver-studded crop top! I wanted it to be dramatic so I added extra big lashes!
I started with the primer (e.l.f, not shown), and brushed the silver pigment all over the lid. I then lined my upper lash line with the gel liner, extending the flick at the end, and my lower water and lash lines with the eye kohl, also extending the flick parallel to the top one. Then, I generously applied the matte black eyeshadow and smoked it, with the pencil brush for definition, just in the corner and around the crease shape, blending just a little bit towards the centre.
I applied the supracolour cream on to the inner corner of the eye and between the upper and lower flicks, as well as to 2/3 of the way of the lower lash line. I brushed the sparkles all over the lid and the highlighter on the brow bone. Finally, I applied the lashes.
Happy with the look, definitely wearable on a night out! I would however, tone down the lashes, and wear a slightly smaller pair!

this is such a gorgeous look, love those lashes! Will have to check them out 😀
I am quite pleased with this one, quite wearable! Those lashes are huuuge! Friend of mine gave them to me to wear on a fancy dress party in Brazil; I managed to track them down on eBay! They are quite good to apply, an together with waterproof Duo glue, I even cried that night and they didn’t come off, hahahahaha
Sometimes I think I should wear smaller lashes for the challenges as they hide the eye make up a bit… but I cannot help it!
I dont think so, I can so see the look and I loved the lashes!!
Thanks for that! When I go out I pretty much do it in the same magnitude… but all black!!! 🙂
Will keep the big lashes for challenges!
