Classic Black Smokey Eye

classic black smokey eye makeup tutorial

When I first started getting into makeup smokey eyes were nothing but intimidating, scary and oh so stunning! I envied anyone who could pull them off and accomplish them without looking like a panda bear. Then I slowly started to experiment more with makeup, learning new techniques and gaining confidence in my ability. Now I can hardly apply makeup without it turning into a smokey eye.

Today's video is an in-depth tutorial on how to create a black smokey eye. I hope you enjoy!
