Black Out Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

Happy FRI-YAY!!! I have been beyond stoked to share this tutorial. I don’t often do super dark smokey eyes – I tend to stay on the light inner corner, dark outer corner look and switch up the colors generally.  However, I saw an image of a deep black smokey eye on Pinterest yesterday afternoon and immediately knew I needed to recreate it. It’s SO STUNNING and is the perfect way to start branching out when it comes to your makeup looks. This look is amazing on all eye colors because it’s so bold. Watch the video below to recreate this Black Out Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial!

Black Out Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

I hope this smokey eye inspires you to go outside your comfort zone, step out of the box and create something unique on your eyes this week. It’s the perfect look for winter and you are BOUND to turn heads. It only requires 3 or 4 colors (depending on how blended you want the look to be), and they are very neutral colors, so there is a good chance you already have these colors in your arsenal!

  4. Ritika | 12th Jan 18

    So pretty! I’m always so scared to try new things with my eye makeup – so I stick to the regular routine- just black eyeliner and mascara! Tutorials like this make me adventurous on my days off at home!

  5. Erin | 12th Jan 18

    That’s such a pretty look! I’m definitely not afraid to try a dark smokey eye…it’s one of my favorite nighttime looks. I’m off to watch the video to see if you list your brow pencil, because I like that it doesn’t have any orangey tones in it.

    • Taylor Mobley | 12th Jan 18
