Smokey Silver and Black Makeup Look

Hi everyone!

The video is finally up after hours of re-converting and re-editing! I filmed this yesterday and I can honestly say that I am very happy with this look. Probably the best thing about this is that I taught it in Tagalog. I never saw the need for anyone to do Tagalog tutorials UNTIL I got awesome feedback from my subscribers. It melts my heart when I receive messages in YouTube/Twitter/Facebook saying my videos have helped them [viewers] so much better when it comes to makeup application. I never really considered the thought but when Benji, Judy of ItsJudyTime’s husband, told me it would be a good idea, I gave it a try. True enough, it worked! 

This makeup look is a classic and dramatic smoky eye look perfect for clubbing or even prom! Prom season is right around the corner isn’t it? Well, this look is achievable with even the most affordable products in the market.

Hope you enjoy! Video embedded at the end of this post.

Love, Say


  1. Do your usual brow, concealing, and foundation routine
  2. We will make use of the ‘tape trick’ to be able to achieve a crisp and precise eyeshadow line/shape
  3. Take two pieces of Scotch tape or Magic tape and tape this from the corner of the eye to the tip of the eye brow
  4. Take a silver shadow and apply this all over the lids; the tape will give a defined outer corner
  5. Take a black shadow and apply this on the outer V, the tape will be your guide and will automatically create the ‘V’ shape
  6. Using a flat brush, take the black shadow and line the outer HALF of your lower lashline
  7. Take a blending brush and blend the outer corners for a more subtle and smoky effect
  8. Take a white shadow and highlight the brow bone
  9. Use the white shadow to highlight the inner corners of the eyes down to the inner HALF of your lash line
  10. Tightline
  11. Line your lashes, use the tape as guide to where your tail should taper out
  12. Curl lashes and apply mascara
  13. Put on false lashes
  14. Apply blush
  15. Apply an electric pink lip color

And you’re done! The tape trick is definitely one of the best methods you can use to achieve a beautiful eye look. It never fails!
