3 Looks That Will Make You Give Black Eyeshadow A Chance

3 Looks That Will Make You Give Black Eyeshadow A Chance

Like black lipstick, black eyeshadow can be a little bit intimidating, especially if you’re a makeup beginner. Intense color, the insane amount of blending, the fallout?! It really is a commitment to do a black eyeshadow look, BUT, with a little practice, it can pave the path towards a smoky coolness that other color options lack.

Here are three Instagram looks that will inspire you to give the black eyeshadow in that palette a second look.

This light layer of black shadow and creative application of liquid gold pigment is a work of gorgeous art and shows that black eyeshadow doesn’t have to steal the show or make you look like a panda.  This subtle smokey look is modern and elegant, though admittedly not the most practical.

This look by Diana Saldana is gorgeous, elegant and surprisingly wearable. The importance of finding a versatile black eyeshadow that has the ability to blend out smoothly is key. If you’re a beginner, practice blending out the shadow on your arm first so you can get a good idea of the pressure and amount of blending needed to work with your black shadow.

This beautifully showcases the intensity potential of black eyeshadow. Pack on the pigment-filled goodness and warm things up a bit by blending in a nice brown shade on the outer edges of the eye.

See? I told you so.
