EYE MAKEUP LOOK : METALLIC CHAMPAGNE SMOKY EYE
STEP 1: PRIME YOUR LIDS
Whenever you want to create an eye shadow look that lasts, it’s important to start by priming your eyelids—especially when it comes to high-impact metallic shades. Simply blend a dot of primer onto each lid and then move on to the next step.
STEP 2: APPLY YOUR BASE COLOR
That means starting with you lighter color. In this case, use Diamond Dust. Use a fluffy eye shadow brush to apply product from your last line up just past your crease. By starting with your lighter color, you’ll give your smoky color something to blend into so that you won’t end up with a muddy metallic eye look.
STEP 3: SMOKE IT UP
Next, use a tapered crease brush to apply some of Bronzed Taupe into your crease. Once you’ve applied it, go back to your fluffy brush and use it to blend your colors together ever so slightly so that there’s a nice gradient on your lid.
STEP 4: PRIME YOUR LASHES
Yep, we’re skipping eyeliner with this one. That’s because a soft semi-neutral metallic smoky eye can prove to be a wonderful daytime lid look. So, you can move straight to enhancing your lashes, with the first step being a quick priming sesh with a lash primer. A few quick swipes will set your lashes up for success to look their longest and most curled.
STEP 5: FINISH WITH MASCARA
Top off your primer with a quick coat or two of mascara and having fun showing off your subtle metallic smoky eye.
