Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Istanbul Spring/Summer 2015 has only just started, but we're already getting inspired by the backstage beauty going on! Our first favorite makeup look from the shows, is this one, which is centered around graphic grey eyeshadow!
We love a good graphic eye makeup look and this one is simultaneously striking and wearable. The dramatic eye makeup was paired with flawless skin and a nude lip to ensure that it remained the central focus of the look. Given how rare it is that a beauty look strikes this balance so perfectly, we just couldn't pass up on the chance to create a tutorial for it.
Get the look
Start with a flawless base. Camouflage blemishes with a concealer, then dot BB cream onto your nose, cheeks and forehead, before blending with a flat brush for a seamless finish.
Appy highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes to really open them up.
Take a dark grey eyeliner and use it to outline your upper lashline. Continue the line into a flick just below the outer side of the eyebrow. Then, lightly draw another line from here down to the outer corner of the eye, so that you have an empty triangle shape.
Take a grey eyeshadow, and apply it inside the triangle that you just created.
Apply a coat of lash lengthening mascara to your upper lashline. Leave the lower set as they are to avoid looking overdone.
Finish with a nude lip for a subtle, polished effect.
