One Product Eyeshadow Tutorial

Today I have maybe the easiest smokey eye tutorial ever?! 

The tutorial only needs one product, a black eyeshadow (or any dark shadow of your choice.) Today I am using a Matte black shadow out of the Sleek Sparkle Palette and an angled eyeshadow brush.

First thing you will need to do is create a wing using your eyeshadow and brush. Once getting the shape blend your dark shadow through the crease and on the outer half of your lid, be sure to blend the line with the rest of your shadow. I found the best technique is to pack on the eyeshadow using your finger just by the line and to then blend it out using a brush. This technique will also create a gradient of the colour through your crease and lid.

And that really is it! I love this look, it certainly seems like you have put in a lot of effort when in reality it took about 2 minutes!

This is such a quick and easy way to create a smokey eye, prefect for transforming a look from day to night.
