It will make your look deep and expressive, and the eyes will flicker with mysterious shine from under thick eyelashes.

You should be familiar with the preparatory stage by now, which includes cleansing, applying foundation, and eyebrow shaping. Once you've done this, you can proceed to the main part.
First, apply black eyeshadow on the entire eyelid, but be sure not to go beyond it; otherwise, you will look like a panda. Because of this, we can “pull” the color only a little in the direction of the temples from the outside corners of the eyes. Next, apply a lighter (gray) tone. The transitions between the different shades should be smooth, so carefully blend the shades with a flat and rounded eyeshadow brush.
Alternatively, for your second coat you can apply eyeshadows with a metallic shade. This is the trend of the season, which celebrities like the most.
The Final Step Is to Apply Your Eyeliner and Mascara
If you think black is too bold of a solution, you can try any other dark shades: dark purple, dark olive, dark brown, dark blue, etc. An important requirement, however, is that they have to be matte. Avoid tile-red shades as they can leave the eyes looking sore. Creating makeup in dark shades is quite difficult. The main thing here is to not overdo it and to comply with the measure. Do this and the results will exceed all your expectations!
