Today I am here with one more eye makeup tutorial to try out for a party look. For party makeup, we either prefer smoky eyes or any dramatic touch to it but the grungy look has taken the beauty world by storm with its simple touch. It is a kind of unkempt eye makeup which is neither smoky nor neutral. I will be doing the grungy gunmetal look with dark silver and brown. I have deliberately used the brown as I didn't want to use the universal black which would have been so common and appeared more of a smoky eye than a grungy look. The beauty of this eye makeup is you can pair it up with any lip color of your choice and keep all the face makeup minimal. Let's begin with the eye tutorial.

Products Used:
  • Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer
  • Miss Claire Highlighter
  • Miss Claire Eyeshadow Palette
  • Sleek Bad Girl Palette
  • Lotus Herbals Kajal
  • Wet n Wild Graphite
  • Maybelline Colossal Mascara

Tools Used:
  • Zoeva 223 and 231
  • Kent Eye Contour Brush
  • Colorbar Smudge and Angular Brush
  • Vega Eyelash Curler

Step By Step Procedure:

Moisturize your eyes and apply a thin layer of concealer to make the eye area bright. I have used Maybelline Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer.

Highlight the brow bone with a shimmery cream eyeshadow or any highlighter. I have used a shimmery champagne color from Miss Claire.

On the outer eyelid, draw 'V' with a soft matte brown eye shadow. Blend the color to create a soft gradient. I have used a brown shade from Miss Claire Eyeshadow Palette.

Apply the gunmetal or any dark silver eyeshadow on the eyelid completely. Take it up to the crease on the soft brown line drawn in the previous step. I used the gunmetal shade from Sleek Bad Girl Palette.

With the same soft brown eyeshadow, blend the gunmetal color in a wiper motion up to the crease diffusing any harsh lines.

Apply kohl on lower and upper waterline to define the eyes properly. I have used Lotus Herbals Kajal.

Take any dark silver eyeliner and apply on the lower lash line. Do not smudge the color and keep it as it is. I have used Wet n Wild Graphite here.

Curl your lashes and apply a thick coat of mascara. You can apply falsies for a night time party.

And here's the final look!
