Fifty Shades of Shadow Grey Beauty Tutorial

Tutorials / August 12, 2014

If you’re a fan of “Fifty Shades of Grey,”  you’ve come to the right place. The most anticipated trailer of the year was finally released and already it has over 18  million views. We couldn’t help ourselves, but to give you this…

In honor of the craze over Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, we’ve came up with an easy, smoldering, grey eye look that will make you look as hot as the steamy trailer! Are you ready?

Start with a fresh canvas by prepping your lids with a thin layer of eye primer or concealer.

 Step 1:

Use a taupe liquid/cream shadow tint and apply some on your lids. Make sure to blend the product out evenly. This will make the eye-shadow pop even more.
