¡Hola Guapas y Guapos!
One of the classics in make up land, yes the black smokey eye. And maybe also the most feared. Why? Cause a smokey eye gone wrong can look like you just got beaten and have a black eye because of that. Blending is KEY for this look (blending is always key, but especially for this look). And please don’t blend it with a silver eyeshadow, we left that ugliness behind in 2005! Try to to blend it with brown eyeshadows in your crease so the black eyeshadow will not look too hard on your face.
The way you blend everything together is also very very important. I learned this trick from a video I watched from the best aka Desi Perkins (I will post the link down below).
Keep in mind practice makes perfect. This look can be quite difficult, so don’t be afraid if it’s not perfect the first time. Play around with different shades of crease colours and master the art of blending! Let me know what you think of this look and show me your smokey eye look!
