Good Evening. Tonight, I have a tutorial on this look I did with the Huda Beauty Smoky Palette that I just reviewed here.  I wanted to do a smoky glam look with the palette and do a softer everyday look which will be coming Monday to the blog. This look is actually inspired by a ring from Bloodmilk which I am in love with and will so be getting as a replacement for my lost wedding ring. You can check out the ring at bloodmilkjewels.com

I love the inspiration so much behind the ring and fits so perfectly as a wedding ring for our story.

Anyway, if you want to see how I got this super dramatic metal look just keep reading below.

The star of today’s look is the Huda Beauty Smoky Palette which just screams glam.

I started out with my eyes primed with Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define, then lightly set with translucent powder.

I first went in with the camel shade on a large fluffy brush.

The camel color went into the crease and the transition area. This will give the look some warmth and keep the look grounded and not too cool toned. A shade like this makes smoky eyes more wearable and less editorial. However, I wasn’t going for “wearable” I kind of wanted an almost glossy lid effect.

Next into the softer of the two matte browns.

The matte brown went lower in the crease/socket and blended into the transition shade.

Then the deepest matte brown went into the crease on a smaller brush.

As you see, I concentrated the deeper brown much more into the crease and on the outer portion of the lid. This alone is actually a really nice look for day-to-day, just throw on some mascara.

Now for this amazing black.

I took the black on a small fluffy brush onto the outer portion patting and softly diffusing the shade into an elongated cat-eye shape by pulling it toward the tail of my brow and ever so slightly into the crease to blend the shades. At this point, you may want to go back in with the camel and soft brown to really make sure the blend is seamless.

Next, I kind of messily carved out the inner part of the lid with concealer and blended the black so there were no harsh lines. This step isn’t actually necessary because I ended up using a glitter primer over the concealer anyway.

Now for some shimmer.

I took this metallic chocolate-brown on a packer brush and patted it all over where I had carved out the lid and blended it into the black.  I ended up adding in more of the black into the crease for more smokiness.

Next, I took this gorgeous silver as a pop of shine on the center of the lid.

First I patted some glitter primer from Nyx then on a detailer brush I patted the silver into the center of the lid and blended it softly around the edges with the metallic chocolate. You may have to go back and forth between the shades until you get the look you want.

I also took a bit of this champagne shade into the inner corner.

Then I sketched out a quick wing to use as a map because I am going back in with the black eyeshadow. I actually really liked the wing I did. I applied liner to the inner corner to give a more elongated and cat-like effect.

Next, with the black, I traced the wing with the black eyeshadow and blended it over into where I had already laid down the black on the outer corner. Then, I cleaned up the fallout and sharpened the edges with a little bit of makeup remover on a q-tip.

This is the part that takes the most patience and careful blending. I try to keep the black contained to where I want it while making sure it’s blended.

For the lower lash line I went smoky of course with the deep brown all along the lower lash line then the black more concentrated on the outer corner and blended across softly. I took some of the camel shade once again and used it to blend out the outer edges.

To really amp up the inner corner I went on with Star from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit which I also used as my face highlight.

And that finishes the look. For mascara, I used the Maybelline Total Temptation.

The Finished Look.

On the lips is Nyx Liquid Suede in Honeymoon which came in the Vault but if you like the formula on the Lip Lingerie they have it in the same shade. The highlighter is Star from ABH Moonchild and blush is Mood Exposure from Hourglass.

Be sure to keep a lookout for a softer more everyday friendly look with the Huda Beauty Smoky Obsessions palette coming up Monday. I hope ya’ll like this one. I really did. I have liked every look I have done with the Smoky Palette. It’s a very easy and effortless palette to work with.  I went to Popeye’s like this. The employees have to think every time I go in “here comes that vampire bitch with her crazy makeup” because every time I go, I am full vampiric glam for some reason or another. I go to Popeye’s a lot to be fair. I mean, the chicken breast and green beans is keto friendly, just don’t eat that delicious spicy flakey crispy crust…

      1. Ah, see I try to do the opposite. My eyes are already super huge, haha.

        I can’t do symmetrical sadly, I have a big scar right along my eyelid on the one side, and there is no making that play nice.

      2. Lol. It’s crazy how we all do such different things.

        Me either. I just try to use shade and light as an illusion like in art class. I have partial paralysis in my eye lids so i kind of look sleepy all the time and one is worse more droopy than the the other. I take pictures from the side that is worse because it hides it.
