FOTD ... Dramatic Black Smokey Eyes

Sunday, 23 October 2011

Yesterday morning i was browsing through some YouTube tutorials while the bf was peacefully sound a sleep avoiding taking me shopping and i decided to recreate one of the looks that night for a friends gig.

As I've been feeling a bit miserable of late i was fully embracing my emo/'goffik' side with this dramatic smokey eye ...


I used:

17 Eyeshadow - Darkness
FashionistA Baked Eyeshadow - Double Take
Eylure Pre-Glued False Eyelashes - 116

I love using this FashionistA eyeshadow as a highlighter for my eyes - used it pretty much everyday since i was very kindly given it at the TOWIB event (will be featuring it in more detail in a post soon).

I also love 17 eyeshadows - I've got quite a collection now. The one thing i wasn't too keen on was the fallout from this product but that may have been more noticeable because of how dark the shadow is or because i was quite heavy handed when applying it on the brush.

In hindsight i think next time i wear this look I'll blend a bit more, add a liquid or gel eyeliner to my upper lashline and wear a more pale shade on my lips so as not to distract from the eyes.

Do any of you wear dramatic eyes on a night out? I'd love to see them - link me below :)




  1. you have done very beautiful makeup on this is what we could say a perfect smokey eyes :)

  2. This looks lovely - I really like it with the bright lips! I always wear smokey eyes when I go out, the darker the better lol. Must be from my emo days too lols.


  3. Your hair looks gorgeous. And love the colour of your lips.. it really suits you x

  4. You look gorgeous! It really suits you xx

  5. This looks awesome on you!! Really really like it. I try and attempt a smoky eye on a night out but it always ends up being a "lightly singed" eye as I'm not that daring!


  6. Your make-up looks gorgeous and you look soo pretty! x
