Brown Smokey Eyes With Gold

For this eye look you will need:

  • Eye makeup base
  • Nude/cream color matte shadow
  • Medium matte brown shadow
  • Dark matte brown shadow
  • Gold/bronze glitter (or glitter liner)
  • Black pencil eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • False eyelashes

Neutralize your eyelid and bottom lash line with eye makeup base. Set it with powder.

For eyeshadows to blend easier and to highlight the brow bone and inner corner, apply nude/cream color shade on the whole lid area and inner corner. For fast application use big eyeshadow brush.

Use a medium matte brown shadow to define the crease and blend it a bit above. Apply the dark brown shade on the eyelid. Use a packing brush for the best color pay-off. Blend the two brown shades together with the blending brush for gradual effect.

Use your glitter or glitter liner on your lower lash line. Drag it all the way.

Apply a pencil eyeliner to the waterline and tightline for a deeper finish. Add mascara on top and bottom lashes and apply falsies.

The eye look is complete!

To recreate this artistic look you will need:

  • Eye makeup primer
  • Cool-toned matte light bronze shadow
  • Very dark matte brown shadow
  • Brown pencil eyeliner
  • Silver/white glitter
  • Mascara
  • False eyelashes (or individual false lashes)

Start off with eye makeup primer. Apply it all over the lid and under the lash line. Set it with a bit of powder.

Define the crease with a matte bronze shade. Blend it above and out. Cover the moving lid with the very dark brown shade. Build the intensity little by little, to create a very deep look. Blend the colors together with a blending brush.

Add the same dark brown to the lower lash line with a smaller eyeshadow brush. Apply the brown pencil eyeliner to the waterline to complete the bottom lash line look. Add the chosen light glitter to the inner corner. Use it wet or with glitter adhesive.

Apply mascara on top and bottom lashes. Put on some false eyelashes or individual ones.

To complete the look, add three dots above the outer crease, like in the picture. The eyes are done!

To achieve this natural look you will need:

  • Eye makeup base
  • Champagne color shimmery shadow
  • Medium-tone matte brown shadow
  • Dark matte brown shadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner (can be gel or pen eyeliner)
  • Mascara
  • Individual false eyelashes

To begin with, prepare your eyes for long-lasting makeup with some eye makeup base. Use it on the top lid and underneath the lash line. Set with some powder.

For a natural look, take a medium-tone brown shade and apply it lightly above the crease with a fluffy blending brush. Use the dark brown shade on the moving lid. Apply with a sponge applicator or a packing brush. Blend the crease and lid colors together.

Highlight the inner corner of the eye and brow bone area with the champagne shade. Use your finger or a smaller eyeshadow brush.

Drag a bit of the medium brown shadow along the bottom lash line. Keep the shadow line seamless. Add a very thin line of liquid eyeliner (or any other chosen eyeliner) along the lashes.

Add just a bit of mascara and put on individual false eyelashes wherever you need more depth and thickness.

The eye look is ready!

For this captivating look you will need:

  • Champagne color shimmery shadow
  • Rose gold color shimmery shadow
  • Yellow-toned matte brown shadow
  • Dark matte brown shadow
  • Brown or grey pencil eyeliner (can be black)
  • Mascara
  • Fluffy false eyelashes

As usual, cover the eyelids with an eye makeup primer. Don’t forget the bottom lash line and set everything with powder.

Start off with the transition shade. Use a yellow-toned brown in your crease and above it. Blend it a bit out, for accentuated outer V shape. With a smaller brush, add the same shade to your lower lash line all the way along to the inner corner.

Deepen the outer V area with a dark brown shade. Blend it together with the crease shadow. With a smaller brush push the same shadow into the lower lash line and along the top lash line.

By using a packing brush or your finger, apply the rose gold shade onto the center of the eyelid all the way to the inner corner. Use it wet for a more intensive color pay-off.

Highlight the brow bone with the champagne shade and line your waterline and tightline with the brown eye pencil.

Finish off with mascara on top and bottom lashes and apply some dramatic and fluffy false eyelashes.

The eye look is completed!
