I never new that the makeup to be used for black and white photography literally uses black or dark eyeshadow and lipstick.

“Duo-tone photos elevate headshots to elegant levels and if you like a photo with vintage appeal, matte black and white is the only way to go. The trick to looking great is wearing high contrast makeup.”, quoted from Taaz.

The smokey eye look is more of an eye makeup effect. Smokey eyes can range from dramatic black to bright smokey eyes down to neutral smokey eyes; it all depends on the person wearing it. There is no exact definition of a smokey eye look. Some people do smokey eyes using one, two or even three eyeshadow colors blended into one. The fourth color is just a highlight color for the brows or to brighten up the eyes a little. The only common thing about smokey eyes is the way the eyeliner is smudged that is the base and a must for all smokey eyes look.

For my model, I did bright smokey eyes using purple eyeshadow.
