Black and Gold Smoky Eye Effect

Black and Gold Smoky Eye Effect


The little black dress of makeup, or most commonly referred to the smoky eye effect, elevates your evening look to something truly dramatic.When it comes to a signature makeup look, smoky eyes is the go to. Of course, the right occasion and technique are quite important for the smoky eye. You can’t just wear a heavy black smoky eye to a wedding.

Step 1: Before putting on your eye makeup, prep the surface of the skin with an eye shadow base for stay-put power. As a general rule of thumb, it’s wise to apply your foundation and under eye concealer after your smoky eyes, since the colour so easily falls down around the eyes.Layer a matte shadow in a nude shade over it, which will help anchor the darker, smokier shadows you’re about to pile on.

Step 2: Pack on brownish eyeshadow to the outer corner and into the crease. If you feel that it needs more intensity you can pack on more colour.

Step 3: Apply black eye pencil to the inner and outer corners of the lid. Leave the centre bare for now.

Step 4: Smudge it out and blend it with the existing black eye shadow.

Step 5: Apply gold shadow to the centre of the lid, gently tapping the brush. One with a shimmery finish adds dimension. Smudge it out to create the smoky effect.

Step 6: Line the upper and lower lash lines with black eyeliner. Then, smudge a shadow brush along the top liner to blur the edges.

Step 7: It’s time for the finishing touches. Apply your favourite volumizing mascara, and you’re good to go!Since it’s a full-on look (and all eyes should be onyour eyes), keep the rest of your makeup on the neutral side.
