Tutorial: Soft Smoky Eye using Indelible Cream Eyeshadow in Carbon

.

I've heard many people who do a smoky look use MAC's "Blacktrack" as the base (think paint pot), then "Carbon" eyeshadow over it to really give a sultry smoky look, I figure i'd use Mad Minerals's Indelible Cream Eyeshadow in Carbon a try for this sole purpose. I am not really a smoky-eyed kind of a girl, since I am very light-skinned I think it can be too overpowering for me sometimes, so I usually do something soft rather than bold, especially since it's wearable anywhere....



















Add eyeliner and mascara...
