Intense winged black smokey eye

Ok, so heres a suprise.. One of the most famous looks worn by celebrities such as Kim.K and on runways and I have never tried this look on myself. Because its black and is all over my lid, I felt if I wore it, it would make my eyes appear small and be too dark. So i thought why not try it out, if it looks wrong I can wipe it off. I have to say it didnt look too bad. I did the shape winged so it elongated my eyes, will definately be wearing this look at a party or occasion!

For you lovely people who want to try this out, my number one tip to have it looking perfect is blend blend blend. Work in circular motions with your brush to make that black eyeshadow dissolve out. To get the perfect wing apply tape from your lower lashline following it up, when you remove the tape after your done you will have a clean crisp edge! If you have sensitive eyes and tape is a bit too much then use a wipe following your lower lashline going up this will give you a crisp edge too. Because we are using black eyeshadow I suggest doing foundation after because you may get fallout but to prevent this press the eyeshadow on with a densley packed brush on to your lid rather than sweeping the brush along your lid.
