Eye Shadows
The eye shadows I'll be using in this tutorial are Urban Decay in "Laced" and "Desperation". These go on super well and I like that they are really pigmented and have a matte finish, because a smoky eye can already be "a lot of look", so if you add shimmer into the mix it can go bad really quickly. These are great!
Buy them for $18.00 each from Urban Decay

Full disclosure: eye makeup is kind of not my thing. I mean…I like it, but usually end up looking like I got punched in the eye. Not cute. That said, I was sent some pretty new Urban Decay eye shadows and linersto try out, so I decided to get brave and try a smoky-ish eye for date night with my husband and I rather like the end result. It's not pro status or anything, but then again, that makes it pretty perfect for those of you who are just venturing out into the wonderful world of eye makeup like myself. This is date night eye makeup that is totally doable for even a novice! I should've titled this "Date Night Eyes For Dummies", because it's seriously that easy - basically like Pre-K finger painting on your face. You've got this ladies. - By Lauren Hartmann
