Easy Insta-Glam Gold & Black Smokey Eye Look

Smokey eye 1a

Creating a dramatic glamorous smokey eye doesn’t have to be a difficult or an impossible task.  Watch my video for a really useful cheat tip on how to create this beautiful look easily! Watch full video here.

I find using a cream based eye pencil as a base really helps to intensify the glitter I apply on top and also keeps the eye shadow in place all day long – or evening! You can get hold of these cream based eye pencils easily. The one I have used is from LINK Urban Decay but other brands like Makeup Forever, Benefit, Barry M and Maybelline do them as well.

So I finished setting my makeup using the awesome YSL Souffle Éclat powder – which I am so in love with!

Then I went on to the eyes whilst my powder was setting. After applying the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil I went in with a glitter eye shadow from the Narsissist Palette all over my eye lid. This palette is gor-juss! I love the colours, they are all so wearable and can be used for both full on glam looks and more subtle glam looks.

Using the same Narsissist palette I took the matte black shade and blended it into my crease. You don’t want to take this colour right into the inner part of your eyes as this will make your eyes look a lot smaller and very dark.  Just focus on the outer third of your eye and blend the colour upwards. Again you can use any glitter eye shadow you have and this look will work. Barry M have some great glitters as well as Sleek and NYX of course.

All you need to do is keep blending until any harsh lines disappear and you’re done! If you are going for an evening look I would use a dark red lipstick, otherwise opt for a nude shade in the daytime for an elegant glam look.
