Black is the new black!! Change an eye look using BLACK Eye-shadow


Can you tell I am completely addicted to Orange is the New Black?!!

Today's post is about changing up an eye-shadow by using black as an eyelid base.
No I haven't gone over to the dark side...bare with me .... it works!!


If you start an eye look with a black eye-shadow and then add the colour on the top. 
This makes the colour appear vivid and pop. Gives a whole new look instantly.

The Urban Decay's Naked 1 palette has a black shade called 'Creep'  use this as a base and use any of the other colours to add variety and essentially change up the whole palette!! 

Below is an example using 'Creep' from the Naked palette which is a dark black shade with 'Toasted on the top. This is a lovely warm bronzey brown shade. 
One of my favourites from this palette.


Left  eye: Just 'Toasted' all over the lid. So you can compare the difference.
 Right eye: 'Creep' with 'toasted' on the top



Fill in your eyelid as a base, the pat on the colour eye-shadow on the top. Et voila! 
A new look.
I have just used the naked palette as an example, any black eye-shadow of your choice will work!
Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
