Gold Smoky Eye with a Pop of Colour

Everyone needs to go all out on make up colours every now an then.

Since i like my golds, nudes and blues i thought that i would add them all together. I have become rather fond of this look and wear it with jeans and a white T – it just gives that extra something.



Here is how to get this look:

1. Start off by priming your eye lids

2. Apply a gold eyeshadow to the entire lid

3. Take a neutral shadow and blend it into the crease (this just helps with blending other colours)

4. Take a dark brown shimmery shadow and apply it to the outer corner and blend halfway through the crease

5. Take a matt dark brown shadow and go over the shimmery shadow just to help blend

6. Apply the shimmery dark brown again and blend it further into the crease to create definition

7. Create a winged eyeliner

8. Take a blue shadow or pigment pot and apply it to the lower lash line – make sure to blend it up into the winged eyeliner

9. Add a bit of mascara and your look is complete
