Black Eyeshadow Makeup Look

I received the beautiful black eyeshadow in my last Glossybox, and it prompted me to try different looks using it. I’ve really only used black eyeshadow as a makeshift eyeliner (and sometimes for Halloween) and I wanted to use it for something more. Those that know me know that I tend to use simple, neutral makeup. I rarely wear bold looks (and when I do its usually a bold lip) but I haven’t done anything edgy before. I wanted to achieve that edgy/romantic eye look.
