Smokey Eye with Minimal Colours

So, you're running late to an event, but you want to look stunning regardless. We've all been there, changing your mind cause you got over the tantrum you were throwing, friends making plans at the last minute, I know the feeling. Every girl should have a go to look that she would be able to do in the dark! 

Mine is a simple black smokey eye using one palette, one mascara, two eye liners, and 4 brushes. I have created a step by step guide on my go to eye look!  

I started off with doing my eyebrows using Wolf from the Illasmasqua Neutral. (using Gosh Eye Liner Brush)

Using H&M's eyeshadow brush, I patted Wolf all over my lids, upto my crease. 


Using a small taped brush, I added the black eye shadow from the Neutral palette in a v shape to the edges.


I applied a black pencil liner to my water line. This makes the look so much more dramatic. Using the same small tapered brush as before, I 
blended the eyeliner under my eyes.

I also applied eye liner to the upper water line as well. A TIP for not getting eye shadow on your fingers is to use a cotton bid to keep it up. 

I applied Maybelline Master Precise Liquid to my lashline, as well as 17's Va Va Voom Mascara .

Final look!
