I always love a good smoky eye and one of the trends this Fall is smoky eyes with a twist. The twist is using another colour instead of just black. You can use any shade you want and I love rich brwon colours for this fall so I opted for bronze. Star of the show today is the Mac eyshadow called ‘Bronze’. It’s highly pigmented and it has a red/orange undertone. Don’t worry though, we’re going to make it look good! You can use any bronze you want or even opt for a brown or whatever you want! I made a simple tutorial consisting of 5 simple steps. Hope you like it!
First step is super easy. Prime your eyelids if needed and use a gel liner or a black eye pencil and just make your eye lid black. Also use it on the lower eye part. It can be smudged, it doesn’t have to be neat. Try to soften the edges a bit, but other than that just it’s just putting black onto your eyelid.
Ok, now it’s time to apply the bronze eyeshadow. Just pat it on your eyelid and don’t be afraid to go a bit higher than your crease. Don’t forget the lower part of your eyes. After this you can blend the eyeshadow.
This part is a bit less obvious but now it’s time to slightly darken the outer edges of your eyelids. I just used a matte black. Also line your eyes with a powder for a softer look. After that it’s best to tightline your eyes, you don’t want any white skin peeking out!This is not a look about eyeliner, so use pencil or powder!
In this step I highlighted my inner corners and I used a little bit of a rich golden eyeshadow on the middle of my eye lid. Just to highlight that area, it gives a subtle extra!
Last step is mascara! I curled them and used something for some volume. I also used some natural corner lashes to add even more volume. Optional is using a golden pencil or eye shadow in your inner corners.
As for the rest of my face I used a subtle highlighter on my cheekbones, a coral blush with a bit of shimmer and sculpting powder for the face. On the lips I used a subtle lipgloss with little shimmers in it. This look is great for a lot of skintones and especially for people with green eyes. The slightly red tones will bring out the green even more! It’s important to use a bit of black eye shadow or pencil in this look, otherwise you might end up looking tired! Hope you enjoyed this! 🙂
