Black and Gold Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello everyone! As you know, I just got my new camera, so I'm really excited to use it. The thing is, though, I don't know how to use a manual camera. I'm still trying to understand how to use it., so please bear with me as sometimes I do not know how to take shots properly yet.

I told myself that when I get my new camera I'd try to do a tutorial. So here is the result: a black and gold smokey eye tutorial.



Before you start, please remember to put lots of loose powder under your eye. This is important especially for dark shadows to make sure that they don't fall to your undereye.

I started by using my Fanny Serrano Gel Liner as cream base in my lids, then I put black eyeshadow on top of it. I know it doesn't look like it, but this is actually MAC Carbon. It looks so light here! I told you I'm still learning how to use it. Anyway, it's supposed to be black :)


Okay, this shot is slightly better. I put a gold eyeshadow in the crease area using a blending brush. Blend it with the black to take out the harsh line.


Okay, at least my shots are getting better. Use a shimmery highlighter for your brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes.


I used my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack for my upper lash line. I lined my entire lower lash line with black eyeliner, then smudged it with black eyeshadow using a pencil brush. I also used black eyeliner to tightline and waterline.


Curl your lashes, apply mascara (and falsies too if you want) and do your brows.


You're finished!
