Black Smokey Eyes

Black smokey eyes are a makeup classic over decades now and is definitely a look everyone wants to wear from time to time. And of course everyone of us wants to look just stunning wearing them! To achieve a beautiful smokey eye, you can follow my easy tips and tricks on doing a black smokey eye. What’s really important is first, blending, second, don’t be afraid of it and third, more blending! Yes, to make a smokey eye really seemless blending is key. I know I say this a lot, but I really mean it. If you send a little bit more time in the process black smokey eyes actually can look really awesome on almost anybody. Although I would recommend to use lighter colors, the older you get. Not only will it look softer on your face, it also will compliment your face even more. But that’s my way of achieving smokey eyes – did this tutorial help you? Would love to hear some feedback!
