Classic Black Smoky Eyes

Hi Everyone!

For this week's post I wanted to do a CLASSIC and sultry makeup look that is always a stunner! I went with a matte black smoky eye with some blended warm tones.  It's super easy to do, and can also be super easy to mess up, so it's best to start out light and build as you apply. I selected shadows from my J Cat Beauty 24 eyeshadow palette in Downtown LA.  The matte shadows in this collection are incredibly pigmented and rich, so a little goes a long way!

I completed the look with a dramatic pair of lashes and a glossy nude lip to give it a little Brigitte Bardot-Claudia Schiffer-Pamela Anderson feel to it.  😊

I hope you like it!
