Classic Michty! My Go-to Smoky Eye Makeup Tutorial ft Sugarpill & Inglot

This is my go-to eye look since way back and I thought I would do a tutorial showing you the ins and outs of Classic Michty, while going through helpful hints and steps that work for any smoky eye in any style.

I either use one of two creamy black bases for this eye, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Perversion or Inglot matte gel eyeliner in #77. This time I went for the gel eyeliner and showed how you can use the same product for your lid, waterlines and lower lashline and go through a good few techniques of blending and smudging cream and powder products.

The black eyeshadow I always use is Sugarpill Bulletproof and I swear and die by this blackest of blacks with a smooth formula that lets you blend to your hearts content. And as with any eyeshadow look I suggest a transition shade and layering to help your smoky eye look perfectly blended and airbrushed.

If you love an opaque, deep dark black as much as I do, check out Bulletproof, the blackest black ever, from Sugarpill here, along with many other gorgeous bright shadows!
