Evil Eye

plum and gray smokey eye shadow
Who doesn't love a sultry smoky eye? It's moody. It's sexy. It's perfect!

I created this dark and smokey eye shadow look on my daughter with the  MAC Evil Eye:Eye Shadow x4 years ago but it's a timeless look I love to create. 

This palette is no longer available plus, I no longer recommend MAC products due to the fact that MAC has been placed on the companies that test on animals lists. I do my best to use cruelty free brands.

This look can be recreated easily though with other eyeshadow palettes. I will give you a step by step guide to create this look along with the best eyeshadow palette Amazon Affiliate links with the perfect colors to get the look.

Recommended Eyeshadows to Create the Plumy Smoky Evil Eye

A deep berry, a blackened violet, black and light gray shadows were the colors used for this smoky eye.

There are two palettes I like that provide a nice selection of these colors. Neither one has a light gray but white and black gently blended will make the perfect light gray. 

A little pop of white on the brow bone adds contrast for more drama anyway.

One palette I recommend is the Urban Decay Ultra Violet Palette to get the evil eye look.

The Morphe x James Charles Artistry Palette is the other awesome palette I like to create the evil eye.

How to Create the Plumy Smoky Evil Eye

Prime
Primer your eyelids, crease and brow bone areas with Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's the best Primer around!

Light Gray or White
Apply a light gray or white shade of eyeshadow to under the brow bone.

Deep Berry
Apply a deep berry shade of eyeshadow to the inner half of the eyelids.

Blackened Violet
Apply a blackened violet shade of eyeshadow to the outer half of the eyelids. Blend the violet into the berry at the center of the eyelid.

Black
Add black eyeshadow to the crease. Blend it well up into the light gray or white shadow on the brow bone. Use the black shadow to line the upper and lower lash lines.

Mascara
Curl your lashes and add two coats of black mascara.

Remember to tap off your eyeshadow brush before you apply. These dark smoky colors can fall out onto your upper cheek and create a smoky mess!


I hope my tips help you create the smokiest, sexiest Evil Eye ever!
