Like a pair of stilettos or a little black dress, the smokey eye look is a classic sexy look that suits almost anyone and is quite easy to accomplish. Unfortunately, a lot of women think it is hard to do, so they don’t attempt to use eyeshadow. Dark eye shadows are scary to a lot of women because they think they might end up looking like they went a round with Mike Tyson or going to a costume party as a panda.
To start off, you need the right tool for the job. A good quality eye liner pencil is a must!
