about this video:

a smoky eye is a highly sought-after eye application for almost any special event. a majority of special events happen to occur in the evening, meaning the lighting is a little darker than during the day; also, many times there will be photographs taken at the event. it is important to take these things into consideration because lighting will play an important role both in how you (or your client) looks for the evening as well as how the photographs turn out.

in this video, robert will show you how to do a few special techniques to make your smoky eye application more subtle for an evening of darker lighting, as well as how to make those eyes photograph better.
