Black Jade: Dramatic Cat Eye Makeup

Black and jade shadow dramatic eye using I Nuovi Fog and Wet n Wild Greed palette (matte black), with  Jordana Pink Passion Matte Lipstick

Smoky shadow can be sexy and strong, and a matte black smoky eye is often the most dramatic of all. For this look, I wanted to add a touch of pale surrealism to the dark drama and minimize the "grunginess" without diluting too much of the strength. 

Step 1: First pack a layer of black shadow onto the outer 2/3 of the lid and gently along the socket line, pulling the color almost to the inner corner, but leaving a gap on the inner 1/3 of lids. This is where the pale color is going to go. The black should be most intense in the outer corners.
Line along the lower lash line with a smudge brush as well. The thicker the color along the bottom lashes, the more grungy the look will be. 

Step 2: With a soft blending brush and gentle windshield wiper motions, blend the black out into a tapered wing, and remove any harsh lines.

Step 3: Apply pale jade shadow to the uncolored gap on the inner 1/3 of lids and run along the inside corners of the bottom lash line as well. Finish by applying black pencil to the water line, and black liquid liner along the top lash line.

Step 4: Curl lashes and apply 2 generous coats of black mascara. False lashes would obscure the color on the inner corners, so if you want to wear them, wear half strips along the outer corners.

The color along the inner corners does not need to be packed on too strongly or blended up and out too far. The primary component of this look when the eyes are open should still be black.

  • I Nuovi Undercover Concealer in 3Y
  • Everyday Minerals Matte Foundation in Golden Medium
  • NYX Pinky Blush (applied very lightly)
