An Everyday Gray Smokey Eye Tutorial Under Five Minutes

Hey guys! I come to bring you a look I wear, believe it or not, to school everyday. The look actually works because the eyeliner is intense--but its only present on the upper lid.  Ready? Here we go!

First things first: prepare your tools! Here's everything I used:
(from left: Etude House Henna Fix Mascara in Black; Clio Waterproof Liner Kill Black; Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer; The Body Shop Eyeshadow in Slate; Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner, Smoky Collection; and a Shu Uemura eyelash curler.) 

Start with priming your eyes. Grab your 2 eyeshadows, using a light cream shade that's close to your skin tone and apply it from your inner lid and midway to the outer.
Next, get a charcoal gray shadow, I use this one from The Body Shop. It has a hint of blue shimmers and is actually a bit lighter than its color on its pot when applied.
 Apply both like this:
Remember to blend, blend, blend your dark gray to your cream shade. Make sure to emphasize your crease by applying more of the dark gray under your brow bone.

Using a liquid liner (you can also use a gel liner if you want; a pencil liner doesn't create the exact same result though), start lining your eyes. Start drawing a line from your outer upper lid downwards, creating a small wing. Bring back the end of the wing down then proceed to follow the arrows around your eye shape. Fill in the lines.
Curl your lashes and apply mascara. You're finally done!

The final look:
