So, here in this section, we will learn how to create a grey smokey eye makeup look. Ditch the black for a smokey eye and embrace the grey for an effortlessly chic look.

Step 1: Prep your eyes

Before you do any eye makeup, the essential step is to prep your eyes. You should prep your eyes with primer, and add concealer for the smooth base.

Step 2: Add a base layer

The next step is to add the base layer. The base layer of smokey eyeshadow should always be a brown or nude shade. Apply brown shade all over your eyelid and blend well. Pick the right eye makeup brushes for ultimate finishing.

Step 3: Give depth to your crease with a dark grey shade

Now, it’s time to add depth and give definition to your crease. Use the dark grey shade to deepen your crease even further. Normally, people use black color, but as we are going for the grey eyeshadow look, we will stick to a dark grey shade for the crease.

Step 4: Add lighter grey eyeshadow

Then pick the lighter grey shade and apply it to the middle and inner part of the eyelid. This is the color that will make or break the grey eye makeup look. Also, do the blending well so there are no fine lines visible, and your eyes look mesmerizing.

Step 5: Apply eyeliner and Mascara

The last step is to add eyeliner and mascara. You can go with the silver glitter eyeliner from our glitter eyeliner range. Add volume to your lashes with mascara. And there you have, one of the best grey eyeshadow looks.
