Black Shadow Alternative

I love a smokey eye but I often find that jet black shadow and eyeliner can be too harsh on me. Now don’t get me wrong, I am the first to use jet black liner to line my upper lid and waterline but the second I try to bring that shadow or liner down on my lower lash line it immediately makes my eyes look smaller and tired. Tired is never cute haha!

One alternative I am loving this season is this beautiful smokey grey/navy shadow. I absolutely love this color as a shimmer shadow. It is the perfect shade for everyones upcoming holiday parties!

I am also a big fan of using darker bronze and lighter plum shimmer shadows to create a smokey eye. They are not as intense as a black or chocolate brown but they are understated and just as beautiful!

Here are some of my favorite black alternatives…
