Dramatic Gray Eye Makeup Look with Gunmetal Lips

This look is from yesterday. I had a very specific idea in my head of how I wanted this to turn out...and it didn't work out. It's not horrible, just not what I wanted. I figured I'd share it with you anyway!

  1. Curious as to what you wanted?? This is very dark superhero, cool!

    1. Thank you! I wanted a very defined cut crease and I applied much more liner to the inner lower tear duct area than I wanted. So I ended up blending out the crease because I didn't like how it was looking, and tried covering up some of the liner with the white sparkly powder. I also wanted silver lips, but could not find my silver lipstick. It still looks fine as is, just wasn't what I was going for.

  2. well for what its worth I think it looks great. Gray can be a hard color to blend out!
