Simple Smokey Eye - Gothic Glam


Hello :)

So one of my favorite looks of all time to wear is a black smokey eye. It's one of my staple looks that I always go back to time after time again. Not only does it last literally all day, but it also is very universal for every eye shape and color. You can also change the undertones from a neutral (what I have here) to a more cool tone or even warm tone by just changing up the transitional colors. 
One thing I recommend with dark eyeshadow is wearing a base ontop of the eyeshadow primer and all over the area you want the black eyeshadow to be rich and pigmented.  I suggest keeping the base out of the crease, but bringing it rather close. This is what allows it to stay all day. I typically use Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner in Black as my base for this look since it has an excellent wear time. 

If you want to do a super fall cool-toned smokey eye like this, I recommend trying Sigma - Elysses and MAC - Sketch eyeshadows. They're very cool toned wine shades, and are very handy with a lot of other looks as well :)

Hope you enjoy!
