Simple Black Smokey Eye Makeup Look

Hello beauties!

Yesterday I had to attend a social event and I decided to wear a black smokey eye makeup look but I wanted something that can be done very easy since my right hand is still healing and I can’t afford to play with many colors. For this look I used only three colors: a black gel eyeliner pencil from Avon which I used as a black base and applied all over the lid and then blended into the crease with my MAC 217 brush. To set the color I applied a black eyeshadow with subtle shimmer from Essence but you can use any black eyeshadow you want with matte, glitter or satin finish. Into the crease for blending I used the darkest shade from Make Up Factory Eyeshadow Palette #12. Under the brow bone I used Jordana Eyeshadow in #05 Creamy Vanilla which is a matte shade matching my skin tone very similar with MAC Vanilla.

I usually don’t wear this type of eye makeup because I’m more attracted toward nude and pink shades but a change it’s good sometimes. I’m still wearing this makeup now when I’m writing this post and it still looks great, without any fading and creasing. πŸ™‚




  • Avon Super Shock Gel Eye Liner in Black (on the waterline and blended on the lid)
  • Essence Smokey Eye Set #01 So What (I used the black shimmer shade on the lid over the black gel liner)
  • Make Up Factory Eyeshadow Palette in #12 – Review & Swatches (I used the soft brown with pink undertones shade)
  • L’Oreal Voluminous Black Mascara

I hope you enjoyed this black smokey eye makeup look. I would love to know what do you think about this makeup so please share your thoughts in the comments bellow.


  1. Love! How is the Essence texture & performance? This color is so nice & I know they are super inexpensive. I don’t do too well with browns this would be great for everyday. πŸ˜€

    • I love the smokey eye sets from Essence. I have them in brown and blue and each set contains one gel eyeliner and one shimmery eyeshadow like the one I used here. I had no fall out, they have a good color payoff and they don’t crease…what else can you wish for at such a good price. πŸ™‚
