All About Eyes - Pixiwoo Greyscale Inspired

Hello, lovelies!

Firstly, I've decided to change titles from EOTD to All About Eyes as I feel that EOTD is a bit misleading. I do these looks whenever I'm inspired or bored and I don't actually go out with that look on, so the "TD" part of "EOTD" doesn't necessarily apply.

Why don't I step out wearing these looks? Well:
a. I typically do 2 looks at a time.
b. I mostly only do the left eye because I'm too lazy to do both and the right eye is a downright pain to photograph (I seemed to have lucked out with one or two looks and was able to photograph the right eye properly; but after that, no such luck).
c. Not all the looks I do will be "wearable."

Now that we have that out of the way... I was inspired by one of my favourite YouTube makeup artists, Pixiwoo, after having seen Sam Chapman's Greyscale tutorial; so I reached for my eyeshadows and got to work. I opted for a more winged out look as opposed to the subtler winged out shape Sam created in her tutorial. Other than that, I tried to stay true to the eyeshadow colours chosen for this look.

Again, let me preface this with the usual disclaimer: i'm not a makeup artist, just a makeup enthusiast :).

But enough chat, off to the look!

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Palette (Original & Storm)
MAC Eyeshadow (Knight Divine & Deep Truth)

To start off, I applied the UDPP all over the lid. Then, I packed on some Knight Divine and a grey shade from the Sleek palette all over the lid up to the brow bone. This combination was also applied to the lower lash line. Then I used a champagne coloured eyeshadow to blend out the edges. As I blended out, I pushed the brush outwards and upwards to create a winged out look. Then I applied some green eye shadow from the Sleek palette to the inner corner of the lid and layered MAC Deep Truth eyeshadow to the outer corner. After that, I lightly brushed some metallic light blue to the lower lash line (on top of the grey eyeshadow combination). To finish, I lined the top and bottom lash lines with a matte black eyeshadow from the Sleek palette. Of course, you can choose to apply mascara or use falsies like Sam did. I simply forgot to use mascara and I don't have any falsies at hand. 

Anyway, hope you all liked this look! Big thanks again to everyone who's "following" my humble blog. Feel free to leave (polite) comments and I hope you guys stick around with me :).

Have a great day, everyone!
