Ah, the smoky eye. It’s hard to remember when people started wearing this vampy eye makeup look. Could it have been during the 1920’s, the age of the flapper? Or could it have been during the times of ancient Egyptians? After all, they practically invented the feline flick. But whatever the date people started to sport dark eyeshadows, one thing’s certain: the smoky eye look has always been sultry, sexy, and perfect for nights, or even days, out.
It has become a staple in the world of eye makeup and has even gone through several changes since it first gained popularity. For example, black eyeshadow isn’t the only colour your can use anymore. You can substitute it with brown, green, purple, or blue!
