There’s nothing classier than a cool look with a classic smokey black eye makeup. A perfect smokey eye that’s going to steal the show with the latest retro trend. It’s really simple to create a black Smokey with dark eyeshadow looks and it’s quick and easy to do.

Here’s 10 classic black eyeshadow tips to create beautiful looks for any occasion.
  1. The first thing to do is have an eyeshadow primer in hand. Use your finger to blend some onto the eye area to prep your lids for the eye shadow that are to come next.
  2. I normally prime my eyes before I use the application, so that helps, but if you really want two eye shadows to show up strongly, use a coated base. Let’s do brown and black shadows for a classic Smokey eye looks.
  3. Take a warm cream brown shadow and again using your finger to pat the product onto the lids. Use a brown and black base first, to intensify the eye shadows.
  4. Use a synthetic brush as it works really well with the cream shadow. Start applying the brown shadow along the lower lash line. Take a black cream shadow and once again use your finger to apply it to the lid.
  5. The warmth of your finger actually helps to blend out the shadow easily. Start blending the black down along the lower lash line with a pencil brush and ensure that you have a nice even color spread.
  6. Take a black shadow with a big C-shaped brush to pack the shadow on top of the base making sure to coat the lid area only and then taking the black down along the lower lash line to set the cream shadow in place in that area as well.
  7. Next, take the brown eyeshadow and layer over the brown cream shadow that’s sitting in the crease by layering your shadows over cream bases.
  8. You’re going to get a more intense color payoff and the shadows are actually going to last longer too. Totally cool for making your makeup last longer during warm weather. I like this look to be dark and Smokey.
  9. Line your waterline with some black eyeliner and try this trick by blending your own lashes in with a false ones. The combination will simply go down well with your black smokey eyeshadow looks.
  10. Lastly, add some mascara and apply with a heavy hand to your top and bottom lashes and that’s it.

Some celebrities are born with eyes that are naturally colored, making them special! Aishwarya has a routine on which colors and eye makeup styles that fit perfectly with her skin and looks.

Although her preference is matte for daytime, her cue for the night is glossy and glitter. To accentuate her eyes, mascara is always important.

And Aishwarya pretty much likes to really pile it on, curling her lashes well and then adding volumizing mascara on top and bottom.

“For the day, I am partial to lip colors in shades of nude, pink, peach, beige and earthy brown,” For events and outings, “light shimmery shades for the lips and smokey eye.”
