Prom/Grad Tutorial – Silver Smokey Eyes

For my second prom/grad/special event tutorial, I wanted to do something a bit different than what I’m used to. Something a bit darker, edgier, and cooler-toned. I went for a silver, sparkly, smokey halo eye, paired with a light nude-pink lip.

With a look like this, in order to keep it still looking soft and classy, I think it’s important to pick your main focus. For this look, the eyes are definitely the focus, so I wanted to keep the face and lips a bit more subdued.
