How to Style a Smokey Eye Worthy of Your Dark Raven Hoard

It can be a lot of pressure to command a hoard of ravens, and a girl’s gotta look the part. So if you’re looking for the right smokey eye technique for inspiring your personal droves of large, demonic birds, let us help you out!


Step 1: Prime your eyes.

When you’re busy commanding your flock in the chill of an eternal winter, you don’t want your makeup to smear. Priming the eye in advance will help your look stay tight, as you conduct your angry ravens long into the dark night.


Step 2: Apply black eyeshadow to the outer corner and into the crease.

For the purposes of herding ravens, the shade must be black. The ravens won’t recognize you as their mistress, if your eyes aren’t as dark as the Long Night. Getting into the crease and outer corners will ensure that your eyes really “pop” and that your loathsome hoard will remain devoted to their haunting mistress.


Step 3: Blend the eyeshadow to avoid harsh lines.

To blend your look and earn the solemn respect of the wizards, use a Q-tip or smudger brush to smudge the edges of your shadow. Your eyes should look like they are ready to slowly swallow someone, perhaps the great wizard. This will also ensure your ravens will feel hypnotized by your commands.



Step 4: Use an eye pencil or liquid liner at the lashline.

Don’t let skin peek through – you are not a fair maiden, you are a dark lady who makes evil take flight. You may also want to line your bottom lashline.


Step 5: Curl your lashes and apply mascara.

For the final fierce flair, add mascara. These ocular wings are a symbol of the wings of all. Together we unite, to spread evil ore the land! Go, beauties! Go!


There you have it! The perfect smokey eye, to earn the respect of your feathered frenzied friends. Caw caw!
