    Here is a really detailed step-by-step explanation of how to get a nice sweep, Friday in honor;)

    Black sweeping with a turquoise color click.
    Add one shimmery highlighter shadow innermost on the eyelid and innermost on the lower lash line,
    as well as in the corner of the eye and under the brow.
    This "opens up" the eyes a bit, so you do not get it there the skull feeling that the eyes are two black holes. It will be a little easier to carry up the sweeping then :)

    Black eyeliner on the inner lash line.

    Before I start applying the black eye shadow, I protect the basic make-up under the eyes with a thick layer loose powder.
    I only do this on make-up with dark shadows, if eye shadow falls under the eye then it does nothing - it is easily polished off with the loose powder when you are done!
    Lashliner - Mark the upper lash line with black eye shadow.
    This is to avoid the gap that can easily arise between the mascara and the make-up itself. The gap is especially visible on black soot!
    Lashliner can also be done with mascara, eyeliner, liquid eyeliner (preferably gel or cake). It's a matter of taste what you like to work with!
    This is what the lashliner looks like when it's done.
    A little can do so much!
    Black eye shadow at the bottom of the eyelid.
    Soot the shadow upwards!
    I start using a small and a little harder makeup brush.
    Then I wipe with a larger brush to get a little finer edges.
    Black eye shadow also on the lower lash line. Sota!

    For this I use the smaller makeup brush you see in the picture above.

    Now the sweeping itself is ready! There are thousands of ways to then "spice it up" more if you want, for example glitter!

    I chose eyeliner and a splash of color!
    Black cake eyeliner on the upper lash line.
    Turquoise eyeliner at the bottom of the lower lash line.
    Black mascara on all lashes.

    A black sweeper works at any party and fits all outfits!

    You can also easily vary a black sweep to what you feel best in, for example skip the dark eye shadow on the lower lash line for a less intense impression.


    I just love it!
