One of the most popular looks in makeup is the smoky eye. But don’t you get tired of doing the same old look? Typically a palette of gray and black shadows and black eyeliner are the tools we depend on to complete our smoky eye look. However, for spring, I suggest that you try a bright bold smoky eye.
In this tutorial, my model, Tatiana is showing the bold metallic smoky eye look. We are using Urban Decay eyeshadows and loose pigments to create this look.
