FOTD: Smokey Grey Eyes

Here's my version of the smokey eye for gals/guys on a budget. All the products I used are under $10 (well, except the M.A.C eye liner). It's a very simple, quick look. I didn't contour or shade, nothing serious. You can achieve this look with just one brush! I made a video too but I STILL don't know how to edit on iMovie. How frustrating! I need to take a class or something...I'm a hands-on learner...

BTW I have a TON of pics for future posts...I just haven't had the time to edit anything. Sorry for the lack of posts...will explain why later. But for now, here's my Smokey Grey look :)

And here's what I used...
  • NYX e/s in Frosted Flakes (all over lid)
  • Milani e/s in Silver Bullet (from lash line to area above crease, half way on entire lid)
  • NYX e/s in Charcoal (from lash line to above crease)
  • Milani Runway Eyes in Blackout(from lash line to above crease)
  • NYX e/s in Geisha (as highlight under brows)
  • M.A.C Technakol Eye Liner in Graphblack
  • KATE Super Sharp Liner in Black
  • L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara in Carbon Black
  • Le Un blush in 05
  • Milani Sheer Color Lipstick in Amaretto
The ducky/penguin thingy from my last post is.....
...a wet wipe case!!! Isn't it super-kawaii?

Re: Edit - I added tutorial vids...I sort of figured out how to trim, add text and whatever.
A Question for MacBook users...how do you trim the MIDDLE of a clip? I could only shorten it at the beginning and the end of the video. Yeesh, editing is a pain! But I think the vids turned out okay. They'll get better though, promise ;)

Gosh.. can't say enough how much i love the blending here. never knew silver bullet could look this good. i love pretty fotds, especially when mostly drugstore items are used! what shades is frosted flakes like? lookes beige-y on the swatch there. oh, don't you think that kate liner is incredibly impossible to completely remove? any trick? I really really liked it but it's so darn impossible to remove.

This is such a pretty look. I always enjoy seeing great looks done with drugstore make-up. I was wondering when you were going to post about that duck thingy. It's so cute! I want one now. LoL

What a beautiful look! I love how it's different than the usual smokey black look. I'll have to try it out someday.
