Black smokey eye with a twist

So this is my black smokey eye, inspired by Jessica Harlow on YouTube BUT my interpretation of it.

Basically, I liked how she kept the smokey eye very close to the crease and I did the same. I also used a similar technique as she did in the video but I did change the shape and the inner lid colour. I also used a piece of cello tape to give me sharp outer V!

I used:

  • Benefit Boing Concealer
  • Urban Decay 24/7 one in Zero
  • Black e/s from NYX Jazz Nights palette
  • Unbranded orange-gold colour from a no name palette
  • Maybelline great lash mascara
So the eye shadow is supposed to look like a little wing at the outer corner of the eye. I added some of the gold colour on the lower lashline to brighten the look!


The look, with eyebrow raised.

This is what it looks like on my normal eye.

Hope you like! Leave me a comment!
