Hi, my name is Brandy Allen, Celebrity Makeup Artist here in Los Angeles at ByBy Studio. Today, I'm going to teach you a tutorial on how to do makeup for dark hair and dark skin. This makeup is Kardashian-inspired. I want to do a smoky eye with sultry brow, sexy lashes and a soft lip. I've already done one eye, I'm going to teach you step by step on how to do the other eye at home. I'm going to start with the eye shadow base in black. We're going to smudge the color all over the lid. I like to keep my eye shadow bases underneath the crease. Next, I'm going to take a blending eye shadow brush and blend the color all over the eyelid. This helps me control where the eye shadow is going to be placed. The next step is adding my soft brown into the crease. I like to use a mixture of these two colors directly into the crease. So, now that I see where I want the placement of my eye shadow, I'm going to go ahead and fill in here eyebrow. Here's a trick with a look like this. For a perfect brow, I want to use an eyeliner gel in brown. Start at the bottom of the brow, making sure that that's where the strongest amount of color is going to go. Now, that I've created her brow, I'm going to use a concealer and conceal her under eye and underneath the brow. The concealer is in a light shade to brighten up her under eye and cancel out any discoloration that she might have. And once this happens, I can go in and even it out with the foundation. Underneath the brow I'm using a concealer as a natural highlight. Taking a black gel eyeliner, I'm going to line the top of the lash line because the shadow is already black, the line can be smudged in, not perfect it. With that same brush and the leftover product, I'm going to create some eyeliner on the bottom. Okay. So, I've finished the eyeliner and I've added the other lash, so now, I'm going to go ahead and correct under the eye and finish the look with a little blush and a pretty lip. So, the color I'm putting under the eye is her regular foundation color. I'm going to next add a neutral brown blush. I'm going to use this other contour. This look is inspired by a lot of contouring complementary to the smoky eye. To finish this look, I'm going to use a peachy lip color with a complementary peachy gloss. And there you have it, a Kardashian inspired look for dark hair and dark skin. I'm Brandy Allen. For more tips and tricks on makeup tutorials, visit or the
