Glamorous And Sexy

This look is sultry, sexy and effortless looking. Perfect for a night out, special event or a friend’s wedding. To achieve it you will need:

  • Warm-toned brown shadow (can be a matte bronzer or dark rusty orange eyeshadow)
  • Matte grey and black shadow
  • Dark metallic bronze color shadow
  • Golden color shadow
  • Matte cream color shadow
  • Black pencil eyeliner
  • Mascara
  • False lashes (optional)
  • Nude lipstick
  • Nude lip gloss

Start with applying Eye Primer on the eyelids and underneath the eye. Set everything with powder or nude tone eyeshadow. Take a Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush and apply the warm-toned shadow into the crease, blending it upwards and out.

Grab a denser eyeshadow brush and by creating a V shape apply matte grey shadow into the outer corner. Take a Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush that was used before and blend the grey together with the warm brown.

Use a packing brush to apply the metallic bronze shade on the outer part of the eye, slightly blending it with the grey. You can wet the bronze shadow a bit before applying it with some water or Setting Spray. That helps to intensify the shine.

Take the gold eyeshadow of your choice and with a small packing brush (can also use the other side of the brush you applied bronze shadow with) apply it on the inner corner of the eye as well as the center of the lid. Continue it on the bottom lash line until you reach the pupil of the eye. Gold shadow can also be used wet to intensify the shine.

For more dimension, add a matte black shadow to the outer V area and outer corner of the lash line. Blend the black on the lashline with some bronze shadow. Keep it only in the outer corner. With the cream color shadow highlight the browbone.

Take a black pencil Eyeliner and line with it your waterline and tightline. This will make the look deeper and create an illusion of thicker lashes. Talking about them, use your mascara on top and bottom lashes. Then apply false eyelashes of your choice to finish the eye look.

Complete your eyebrows and foundation routine, add some contouring, blush, and highlight to your face. Finish with the nude lipstick and apply nude lip gloss over the top. Use lip liner before, if necessary. You are done!

Ready For Hollywood

This look will turn all eyes on you. Perfect for occasions, special events, girls nights. To achieve it you will need:

  • Medium cool-toned brown shadow
  • Dark cool-toned brown shadow
  • Golden color shadow
  • Shiny white champagne color shadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner (can be gel or pen eyeliner also)
  • False eyelashes
  • Mascara
  • Matte red lipstick of your choice
  • Highlighter
  • Cool-toned contour shade

Prime your eyes with some Eye Primer and set it with powder. Use a medium cool-toned brown shade on a Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush and apply it in the crease and outer corner of the eye. Blend it upwards.

Take the dark cool-toned brown shadow and pack it in the outer corner with a packing brush. Blend it with previously used Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush together with the medium brown shade.

Use gold color eyeshadow on a packing brush and apply it on the center of the lid all the way to the inner corner. Leave some space there for shiny champagne color shade. Use your finger or a small eyeshadow brush to apply it directly into the inner corner. Both eyeshadows can be used wet to make the color more intense and shiny.

Grab a Liquid Eyeliner and draw a thick line along the lashes. Use a lot of mascara on top and bottom lashes, and put on some false eyelashes. It is better if they are fluffy and a bit messy looking.

To complete the eye look, add some medium brown shadow to your lower lashes and blend it very well. The eyes should be done by now. Continue with your foundation and eyebrows routine. Apply some cool-toned contouring shade in the hollows of your cheeks and blend it up. Contour also where it is needed depending on your face shape.

In this look, use a highlighter with no mercy. Apply it on the top of the cheekbones, along the center of your nose, on the chin and etc. But remember, if your skin is oily, leave the oiliest areas untouched.

Finish off the whole look with red lips! Apply some lip liner if needed and go in with a matte red lipstick. It can also be a Liquid Lipstick with the flawless matte finish.

Vampy And Sultry

This dramatic and bold look is definitely not for everyone. Be a star when going out, clubbing or visiting any special event. You will need:

  • Cool-toned matte medium brown shadow
  • Matte grey shadow
  • Golden color shadow
  • Matte white or cream color shadow
  • Black liquid eyeliner (can be a gel or pen eyeliner)
  • Golden glitter or glitter liner
  • Mascara
  • False eyelashes
  • Dark matte wine color lipstick of your choice

Start with priming your eyelids and underneath the lash line. Set with powder or nude eyeshadow. Take a cool-toned medium brown shade and apply it with Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush into your crease and blend upwards.

Use a matte grey shadow on a packing brush and apply it in the outer corner following the V shape. Blend inwards. Take previously used Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush and blend the two colors together slightly.

Use a wet packing brush and apply the gold shade on the center of the lid, moving inwards. Take a fluffy brush and a matte cream/white shade. Use it in the inner corner of the eye and underneath the browbone.

Use a sharp-tip Liquid Eyeliner to draw an intense cat-eye. Extend it in the inner corner to elongate the eyes even more. Use the same liner on the bottom lash line. Apply a thin strip and extend it in the inner corner as well as the outer. Take a small eyeshadow brush and with matte grey shade smoke out the bottom liner a little bit.

Grab golden glitter or glitter liner and fill in with it the gap between the outer bottom and top cat-eyes. Finish the eyes with some mascara and falsies.

Do your foundation and eyebrows routine, apply contour shade, a bit of blush and highlight if needed. Use the dark matte vampy lipstick on your lips. Line them prior to the application if necessary. By now you should be done!

Intense And Mysterious

Probably the best for clubbing but still wearable in many occasions – black smokey eye with a golden twist to it. To achieve this look you will need:

  • Satin finish warm brown shadow
  • Matte black shadow
  • Satin champagne color shadow
  • Golden glitter or glitter liner
  • Black pencil eyeliner
  • Mascara (You can also add some individual lashes)

Neutralize and prime the eyelids and underneath the bottom lash line with an Eye Primer. Set everything with powder or nude eyeshadow. Take a Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush and satin warm brown shadow. Apply it in the crease, blending up and out.

Take a packing brush and matte black shadow. Pack it on the lid and with previously used Fluffy Eyeshadow Brush blend together with the brown slightly. To apply the same black on the outer corner of the bottom lash line, use a small eyeshadow brush.

With blending brush of your choice, apply satin champagne eyeshadow on the browbone. And now it is time to move onto the glitter. Take your golden glitter or glitter liner and apply it on the bottom of the inner corner of the eye. Extend until it meets the middle of the pupil.

Continue with some black pencil Eyeliner on the waterline and tightline to intensify the look. Apply mascara and add some individual lashes if needed. The eyes are done!

Finish with the rest of the face. Do your foundation and eyebrows routine, add contouring products, blush, highlight if you feel like you want it. I recommend to keep the lips nude and use some skin-toned lip products on them. Set everything in place with some makeup Setting Spray and you’re done!
