The "Smokey Eye"... and NO, it's not black! lol.


Ahh yes... the most desired eye makeup look in the biz!

A lot of ladies want to try the smokey eye but never have because of their fear of "looking like a raccoon"!... and I can't say that I blame them. 

But at the same time, I must admit being surprised by this fact because it lead me to realize just how many ladies still think that a smokey eye has to be black. Well, it doesn't!

Thus, the remedy for the dreaded "raccoon eye" is... (wait for it...) try a different color! 

In this picture, a simple gray was used. I know... I know... it's not a major departation from using the classic black eye shadow but in reality, choosing to use a medium or even a dark shade of gray versus using black, is noticeably different and... you won't look like a raccoon!

But don't just take my word on this... try it and see.

The key is to test out different shades of your desired color (ex: light gray, steel gray or charcoal gray) and see which one best compliments your individual skintone. From there, all you have to do is practice your application technique and in no time at all,  you'll be wearing the "smokey eye" with sexy confidence!
