How to Get a Silvery Smoky Eye

See How to Get This Silvery Smoky Eye

Recently, OnSugar blogger Andrea Claire of Beauty & the Blog posted a beauty look she created for her daughter. Check out an excerpt below on how to get this silvery smoky eye:


  • Lids: Using a sponge-tip applicator, base with MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Blackground.
  • Crease: Staring straight into the mirror using the tip of a tapered contour brush for eyes, sweep a black shadow onto the crease. I used Face Atelier's Carbon eye shadow. Tip: Don't add a lot of pigment to your brush and keep the sweeping action going with a gentle hand, as it will blend nicely!
  • Liner: I lined on top of the shadow with Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. Apply with a bent liner brush. It's best not to close your eyes so you can get right at your lash line as well as to see the angle for a little winging action on your line.
  • Inner corner: On the tear duct area, apply a reflective white/silver shadow using a pencil-tip brush which gives a precise application with easy blendability. I used Yaby Cosmetics' PP080. Little known makeup brush tip: If you hold your brush close to the tip, your application will be more heavy-handed than if you hold closer to the middle of the brush. Holding even further to the end of your brush, you get a light-handed application; great for blush and bronzers!
  • Finish your eye with your favorite mascara.
