Hi, I'm Erin Hendley, Professional Makeup Artist and today, I'm going to show you how to apply dark blue and black eye shadow. Now, depending on the style of makeup that you want, there are different techniques. But, one of the most standard one are to really do this. Go in with our dark blue, use sparingly; blues are kind of hard to deal with at first, so just go in and really go along the lash lines here. Just dabbing it in, it doesn't have to be neat because the black is going to smoke into it and it's just going to be gradiented. So, we have our black, or we have our blue and now we're going to go in with our black right over it. So, we 're just going to work it in, small little circle strokes on top of it, a little bit at a time, just being worked into the eyelid; really just buffing it out to the edges. This is a smoky eye and the point when you use two colors like these is to not see where one color starts and the other color stops. It's really to make it look like it's one color that has gradiented out, so it looks a little faded, but it's just smokes into something nice and seamless. That's the look we're looking for. Best use as a nighttime look since we're dealing with a dark blue and a black, both pretty nighttime colors. I'm Erin Hendley, and I just showed you how to use black eye shadow and dark blue eye shadow.
