Hi guys. This is Christina from realbeauty.com. And today I'm gonna show you how to do a quick and easy black and gold smoky eye. So the first thing that you need to do when you're starting off this look is use a primer and the primer that I'm using today is Urban Decay Primer Potion and this is great for-- so your cutlers don't crease and so that your shadows stay. So you're just gonna use this right up on the whole eyelid. And you just wanna blend it in very well up to your brow bone. The next thing that you wanna do is you wanna apply a black eyeshadow, any eyeshadow that you want. And today, I'm just gonna use Urban Decay Oil Flick that's black with flick of silver. So just add this up to your crease. And you really wanna pack on the color. And don't worry if it's a little bit messy because you're just gonna clean it up with blending. After that's done, I'm going to add zest to the eye with a dark color that's close to my skin tone which is like a bronze and at the right into the crease. Okay. After that, you're just going to blend them together. The next thing that you're going to do to really make it stand out is add a highlight color. We just use a lighter color right under the brow bone. And you just wanna blend all of those together and that's just it. All you wanna do now is just add some mascara. And there you have it, one smoky eye. So now I'm just gonna do the next one and your look should be complete. Again having my eye using oil flick which is a black. And the creases are dark, neutral that's close to your skin tone which is twice base from Urban Decay. Blend. And then add a highlight color. And that's it. You have your smoky eye that's black and gold. Thanks for watching. Bye guys.
