Black Smokey Eye Tutorial (Video)

Rocking a black smokey eye has intimidated for me for a long time. I’d always thought that it would overpower my pale hazel eyes and that as a blonde, I would be walking a thin line dividing classy and edgy with trashy. So for a long time I’ve avoided this daring eye look assuming it was one to be worn by those far braver and courageous than I. Overtime, as I became more and more inspired by darker and dramatic smokey eyes I decided to test the waters and give it a try. My goal was to create a timeless, yet edgy look that can bring a simplistic outfit and makeup look up to another level and add an unexpected twist on something subtly familiar. After many attempts and many do-overs here’s the look I’ve created. It has the drama of the black smokiness, but incorporates a subtle femininity. To learn how I achieved this look, check out my video above! Click on the images below to see what products I used in this look!
