Tutorial: Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal Diamonds'

So in my last post I reviewed the Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal Diamonds', and here is the tutorial as promised! The look created is a very sparkly smoky eye that transitions from silver to black. This palette is really fun to use because the glitter will make the eye look glamourous no matter which combination of colours you use! Read below to find out the steps :)

The products that I've used are:
- Maybelline Eye Studio Hyper Diamonds Eyeshadow in 'Charcoal Diamonds'
- Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara
- Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
-  Mac 266 small angle brush
- Covergirl Liquiline Blast eye pencil
- Eyelash/brow brush
- Eyelash curler
- Any general eyeshadow application brush 

1. Prime the eyelids with Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
2. Use a general eyeshadow brush, or the sponge applicator included, to apply number four in the palette to the main part of the eyelid.
3. Create a V shape in the outer corner of the eye using number 3, and blend it in to the middle of the eye.

4. Add number 1 to the outer half of the crease, this will help to create a depth to the eyelid.
5. Sweep number 5 across the crease and down into the inner corner to add an extra element of sparkle.

6. Apply number 2 to the brow bone and to the inner corner.
7. To line under the eye, use a small angle brush and apply number 3 to the outer half, and number 4 to the inner half.

8. Comb and curl your eyelashes.
9. Apply three coats of mascara, for this kind of smoky eye it's nice to have bold lashes.


  1. I use that primer. I LOVE it. This is so pretty! I love how you lined the bottom of the eye slightly. I've never really done that before but I've been wanting to try it.
