This look was pitched to me as the ‘Anti-Valentines’ look! It had to have black eyes, no lashes (someone please request lashes… I love lashes) and no bold lip colours. Love how y’all are real specific on your looks (yay)! The request was also to make this a very simple look for a beginner as smokey eyes are difficult to do. So I did not use loads of colours and basically used a black eyeliner as a base and a black shadow with a gold toned highlight and brown to blend.
For anyone having trouble with a smokey eye look, the key is to blend out any harsh lines. Take your time blending with a fluffy brush. You want to gradually diffuse the colour as you blend.
So following the request above, here is the look. Hope this is what you were looking for my ‘I’m single and loving it‘ follower who wants to remain anonymous.
Beauty Holder, Beauty Tip: You can blend as high or low as you want with a smokey look. I blended quite high due to my hooded lids as I wanted to be sure you could see it.
