Treat your face this summer with a glam metallic eye look that is not only super stylish, but super easy, using the newest eyeshadows.
Prime your eyelids so that the shadows are vibrant and don't crease or oil up throughout the day. Try Models Prefer Eye Primer $12.99 from Priceline.
Apply a satiny brown shade over the entire lid using a flat shader brush, using patting motions to get the best colour payoff. We're using the Guerlain 'Two Spicy' Duo Eyeshadow $64, from David Jones. Then take a blending brush to soften out the edges.
Guerlain Two Spicy Duo
Apply brown shadow with a flat shader brush
Take the metallic eyeshadow from the Guerlain 'Two Spicy' palette on a firmer flat shader brush and pat it over the top of the brown shadow. The colour should allow for the brown to show through whilst creating a duo chrome metallic effect that looks very eye catching and unique!
Take some of the brown shadow and smudge it below the lower eyelash line.
Take a metallic eye pencil in a brown shade and carefully run it over the waterline, a great one is the Eye of Horus Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil, $30 from www.eyeofhorus.com.au. If you have small eyes I suggest swapping the brown eyeliner for a white one like Essence Kajal Eye Pencil in 04 White, which is just $1.75 from Priceline.
Now you can take your favourite mascara and give your lashes 2 coats, top and bottom, for a flirty finish to the eyes.
To finish of the makeup look, use your favourite pink lip colour that gives a glossy or metallic finish, like the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in number 5.
Finish off the look with a slick of lipstick
The perfect look for a night of glamour!
