I started with eye primer, as usual. Then for my silver I used MAC's Electra as my lid color.
For my crease color, I used MAC's Meet the Fleet, a dark blueish gray.
Even though it looked dark in it's container, when I put it on it was much lighter than I expected, so I applied a few layers to build it to the darkness that I wanted.

Even with pencil liner, I still like to draw a line up and out from the edge of my eyes to give my eyes a visual lift. This next photo is a little darker than the others, but that's just the overall photo itself.
When I use pencil for lining my eyes, I often like to smudge it with either a Q tip or a smudge brush
And last is mascara for top and bottom lashes. Be sure to get the tiny little lashes in the corners and your bottom lashes.

I was pleased with this look - a nice metallic silver sparkle without looking like I was going to a New Year's Eve party. The key was using the dark blueish gray in the crease to balance the sparkle. I finished it off with a bright fuschia matte lipstick, Rebel from MAC, one of my all time favorites. If I wanted to tone down the look more, however, I'd use a nice pinky-beige or a light berry lipstick instead of fuschia.
I forgot to get some pictures of just the finished eye, so I'll add those a little later. For now, here's the look I got:
