Steps For A Black Eye Makeup:

Cleanse your face with a Ph-balanced cleanser.

Next, use sunscreen or a moisturiser if it is nighttime. Let it sit on the skin for 1 minute. Use an eyelid primer is also available these days. Use that blending well with the skin of the eyelid.

Follow with a concealer to cover any spots, bluish veins, blemishes or dark circles. Blend well with the skin.

Next, use a foundation. This prepares the base for your makeup to sit.

Now take a gel eyeliner or liquid black eyeliner. Draw up a broad lining starting from the exterior of the upper eyelid.

Take kohl and use it on the lower rim. Line the inner rim and make a broad line along the lash line. If you have small eyes, do not use kohl on the waterline. Use a flesh-toned pencil instead. Use kohl after this just below the lash line.

Next, take a black eye shadow on a Q-tip applicator brush and use it on the whole of the upper lid. Without black eye shadow, use kohl to fill the entire upper lid. Leave the crease area. Using black on to crease area will overdo the makeup.

Now take a clean Q-tip and spread the black eye shadow or the kohl from the exterior side of the upper eyelid. Smudge the colour and enter the crease area.

Use the same Q-tip to smudge the lower eyelid line. Do not smudge too much on the interior portion. Only smudge at the exterior sides.

Your eye makeup is almost complete, but we will use the silver eye shadow to give this look a more fresh form. Take a clean, angled brush. Coat it well with silver eye shadow. Use this on the lower rim at the inner corner and extend following the lower rim line halfway across the eye. It should be such that the silver slowly blends into the dark.

Give a little silver to the brow bones just starting above the crease section.

Curl your eyelashes. Use mascara.

If using false lashes, use them right after mascara application with the glue that comes with the pack.

Fix and hold with tweezers for 1 minute. You have to be steadier if you are using single-clump lashes.

Using false lashes on both lids will make a bolder black eye makeup look.
