One Trend, Two Ways: Metallic Smoky Eyes

glo minerals metallic smoky eye kit

The Metallic Smoky Eye Kit embodies so much of what we love about makeup! With its sleek black compact and four gorgeous shades, we get excited every time we get to use this standout kit! Janeena uses the kit regularly and loves that it can create lovely day looks and smoldering evening looks.


Just because the kit is designed for smoky eyes doesn’t mean it can’t be used for daytime looks. First, apply Lid Primer then applied the lightest lid shade on her entire lid and up to her brow bone. Next, blend the lightest brown or base shade all the way across her crease in a windshield wiper motion. To enhance the outer corner of the crease we used a small amount of the deepest liner color and created a small V in the outer corner of her eye then blended the color inward. She lined her eyes with the Precise Micro Eyeliner in black and smudged the light brown base color into the lashline. She finished the look with a couple coats of Water Resistant Mascara!

Janeena showcased the Metallic Smoky Eye Kit’s glamourous side by creating a classic smoky eye. She started with Lid Primer then applied the medium brown shade (the crease shade) into her crease as well as her upper and lower lash line. Then, she spritz her Eyeliner Brush with Moist Hydration Mist and applied the deepest liner shade on her upper and lower lash line and on top of the medium color to add depth. She topped the whole look off  with a soft highlighting on her brow bone and on the inner corner of her eyes with the highlight color. This look is perfect for your upcoming holiday parties!
