Step 1:Apply an eye primer onto your eyelid. If you don’t have one, try a creamy concealer instead. This ensures that your eye makeup will stay on all day and more importantly, creates a smooth, even surface for your eyeliner and eyeshadow to stick to.
Step 2:Take your favourite black eyeliner (be it liquid, gel or pencil) and line your top lash line from the inner corner to the outer corner. If you like the winged eyeliner look (like us!), continue drawing a diagonal line upward from the outer corner of your lash line. Then draw a line connecting the wing to the middle of your eyelid and fill inside the lines.
Step 3:With a black eye pencil, line your lower lashes. Smudge the line with a brush, your finger or a cotton bud to balance the smokiness of your upper eyelid.
Step 4:Using a blending brush or your trusty finger, sweep a charcoal eyeshadow into the outer corner of your eye and the crease. Continue to blend inwards across your eyelid. Always start with little eyeshadow as you can gradually build up the intensity of the colour.
Step 5:Finish off the look with your favourite mascara for long, thick eyelashes!
