Smokey Eye Tutorial

So I just posted a video on YouTube on how to do a
really simple & subtle smokey eye. Only one eyeshadow was used to create the smokey eye and of course another shadow for the highlight and lower lash line.
It's really really easy, & is completely fail proof.
This is a really good look for beginners who really want to try doing a smokey eye.
Don't limit yourself to just a black shadow also, you can have a more everyday smokey eye by just using a brown instead of a black, or you could even try using two shadows instead of one (using black on lid and using a light brown in crease to smoke it out).
I hope you guys try this look out, and have fun with it :]

Products Used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Elf Shadow Brush
Elf Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Blending Brush
Coastal Scents Pencil Brush
Urban Decay Shadow in Perversion
Stila Trio in Bronze Glow

So this is what the finished look is going to look like

1. Prime lid
2. Apply black shadow on lid (how high up you want to go depends on how dramatic you want your look to be)
3. Get your blending brush and just blend the oute
r edge up (this is going to create the smokey look)
4. Get a light shadow and highlight under your brow
5. Get a soft brown shadow and apply it on your lower lid
6. Apply mascara!
