This black Illamasqua shadow is great, probably the best black shadow I’ve used. Often I find dark shadow difficult to apply and blend smoothly, but this stuff is super velvety.
For this look I started by applying the black Illamasqua shadow to the lid from lashline to crease. When you are using dark shadows start light and then build on top of it until you reach your desired color saturation. Use the eye socket bone as a guide for the shadow, diffusing the shadow at the edges so there are no hard lines.
Next I brought the shadow down on the lower lid as a drop shadow. I chose to keep the shadow on the outer edge of the bottom lid only. Make sure the shadow on the top and bottom lid connects at the outer corner of your eyes.
Then I blended the dark blue MAC shadow onto the outer area of the top lid and into the crease. Make this blue shadow as subtle or bright as you wish.
Finish the look with plenty of mascara.
