Matte Smokey Eye

Hi guys :) I recently got  request to do a matte smokey eye and i thought to myself what a fabulous idea! I really haven't done alot of  typical smokey eye looks so i really enjoyed this! I used the Coastal Scents 88 "Warm Palette" to make things a bit easier but you can use whatever you like.
I hope you all like this and try it out and if you have any looks you would like me to do please dont hesitate to ask!

Products used: Coastal Scents 88 "Warm Palette"

-First i started by applying eye primer over my whole eye lid.Then using the Black in the palette on a pencil brush i traced around my crease and winged it out a little.I find if its too rounded it can look a bit "Panda-ish"

-Next i used a medium grey on a blending brush and blended around the black.I used the grey to help blend the black out,dont worry though if the blending isn't perfect we are going to go over that colour later. 

-After that i used a dark pewter colour on a flat eye shadow brush and i patted that colour down on most of my eye lids (top and bottom) except the very inner and outer corners.

-I then used a warm-light-chocolate colour to blend around where i did they grey,this softens the look alot.I also used a nude colour a little bit lighter than my skin and applied that around the inner corners of my eyes.

-Next i lined my lower lashline with black eye liner (i used the Urban Decay eye pencil in "Perversion"),lined my top lashline with black liquid liner (L'Oreal carbon black lineur intense),applied mascara (Covergirl "Lashblast") and false lashes.

What do you think of the finished result?Thanks for stopping by my little makeup space and dont forget to comment :)
