  1. Elizabeth

    shadows: Kat Von D’s Beethoven palette or Korres Dark Grey eyeshadow

    cheeks and lip: light, subtle pink

  2. ledonatella

    Pinks and greys are my favorite together so when I wear this I use it on the lid with MAC Vex as a highlight and BB Cyber Grey in the crease for a pretty grey smokey eye. I use MAC Uniform Grey Powerpoint Liner witch I go over with UD Oil Slick shadow and Clinique High Definition mascara. Stila Bronzer 1 all over and Sue Devitt Belize cheeks. MAC Dervish lip liner, MAC Fabby lipstick and Clinique Airkiss gloss.

  3. Anna

    a smokey eye of course!

  4. love pairing it with pink. All that glitters on highlight and lid, maybe a plum or fuchsia in the outer corner, and BRIGHT Show Orchid or Girl About town lips.

  5. Christy

    *listens* I’ve had this eyeshadow forever but have yet to use it :( I’d love to see you do a face of the day with this Christina 😀

  6. Kharina

    Gunmetal is my favorite shade from the grey family that I own, so I would pair it with Carbon from MAC to smoke out the eye for an evening out and about :)

  7. Nora

    I love grey and green, surprisingly. I’d do a sheer bit of Juxt in the inner corner, an olive color like Golden Olive on the lid and Gunmetal in the crease and on the lower lashline. Gunmetal 24/7 liner on the upper lashline and black mascara. Bronzer on cheeks just as a contour and a peachy blush, then a sheer pink gloss, or maybe Angel lipstick.

  8. vivian

    i use gunmetal to create a blue/steel (lol) smoky eye.

    eyes: i put gunmetal all over the lid, with mac deep truth in the center for a pop of color. then i use mac electra as a highlighter for the inner tear duct, and i use mac carbon to smoke it out at the corner. then l’oreal hip gel eyeliner in black for both the top lashline and waterline.

    cheeks: something light pink with blue undertones, like thebalm’s down boy or mac well dressed

    lips: simple, any light pink gloss or lipstick.

    christine, do you have any suggestions for a brow highlight with the look i mentioned above? all my highlight colors have warmer/gold reflects. Also, I feel some of the silver eyeshadows I own look a bit dirty placed under my brow. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

  9. Charlene

    Definitely Uzi from Urban Decay

  10. Jenna

    I would use a shimmery charcoal grey cream shadow base to intensify the colour, and MAC Smolder Eye Kohl.

    On cheeks, something light such as MAC Well Dressed blush, and a light pink lipgloss on the lips such as NARS Turkish Delight.

  11. G

    As a simple smoky eyeliner on the top lashline slightly winged out with a babydoll blush (Dior 829), highlighter on the cheekbones (Nars Albatross) and a neutral soft pink glossy lip (Nars Chihuahua or Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle)

  12. Here is a look I did recently inspired by Temptalia’s smoky eye with the Urban Decay Naked Palette :)
    NARS Mont Blanc Sheer Glow + Revlon Shell Photoready
    BB Light Bisque Corrector
    MAC Prep + Prime Powder
    Anastasia Medium Ash Brow Powder Duo

    UD Naked Palette
    -Creep along upper lashline and in outer V
    -Gunmetal on lid and in crease
    -Virgin on tear duct
    MAC Blacktrack on upper and lower lash line
    UD Deviant on lower lash line
    L’Oreal Lash Out WP Black

    MAC Blooming

    MAC Plink!
    Lancome Autumn Jasmine

  13. Marina

    Since I got this in the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I automatically paired it with Creep. They’re perfect together! I wear Gunmetal all over, with Creep in the outer third of the eye.
    Then for the cheeks, I’d wear a very neutral/peach blush.
    On the lips, I’d wear a simple sheer or light pink gloss, no lipstick.
    Since the eye would be so heavy, I would go lighter and more natural on the rest of the face.

  14. Lauren

    UD’s Sphynx all over (lash line to brow line) UD’s Ecstasy on lid, UD’s AC/DC on the outer corner and Gunmetal in the crease :)

  15. Jen

    I love gunmetal shades! Usually I smudge Stila’s Kajal liner in Onyx to my upper lash line with a pencil brush and set it with Gunmetal e/s to brighten that area and keep it smoky. I would then tightline, waterline with the stila kajal liner in onyx and lots of voluminous mascara. I probably would just keep my face simple with bronzer, a champagne highlight to brow bone and cheek bones. For the lips I would go for MAC’s girl about town lipstick with magenta lip liner from MAC as well for that fiery pink lip.

  16. Sarah

    Im loving that one shadow on lid than a completely different color on the lower lashline look so i think this would work with that. This being all over the lid blended out and a soft gold on the lower lashes

  17. Kourtni

    Eyes: Gunmetal lightly on lid then pretty heavy underneath with smudged liner.
    Cheeks: Harmony to contour
    Lips: C-Thru Lipglass

  18. Lo

    I use it all over the lid and blend it out with MAC Pincurl or Vex or Silverthorn eyeshadows in the crease. I use a soft black eyeshadow (something with less pigmentation than Carbon, I usually use MAC’s Mont Black) to very softly smoke out the outer corner, and smudge along the upper lash line.
    I then use MAC Shroom e/s mixed with Vanilla e/s as the highlight and in the tear duct area, line my waterline with a silvery grey e/l and smudge some more of the Gunmetal along the lower lash line. I then tightline with black eyeliner and apply mascara.

    I love soft, irridescent pink lips and cheeks with grey eyeshadow looks so I on the cheeks I use Pretty Baby beauty powder and brush on a little Porcelain Pink or Petticoat (the pale pink bit) MSF over the top and on the lips I use Icescape lip gloss.

  19. Jazz

    that charcoal is pretty , I think I need it.

    shadows : i think that it would be cool with UD’s woodstock
    cheeks: NARS multiple in palm beach
    clear lip

  20. Kim

    I’ve used UD’s Mayem (purple) and I’ve also have used dark blues with it. Its a great smokey eye color. :)
