I am glad to be back! I apologize for not posting for a while, but as Juna mentioned before, I was in China and unfortunately could not access WordPress from there. But I am back now, with a ton of new ideas, so keep posted!
The look I decided to recreate today is perfect for fall and winter and complements pretty much all eye colors. It is quite simple but unique in the same time, for those who want to add a bit of a twist to a classic smokey eye with a vibrant coppery eyeliner. I hope you enjoy!
P.S. I apologize in advance for some of the pictures that are slightly blurry, I hope you still get the idea!
Step 1: Apply a warm-toned brown all over the lid with a flat brush. Also apply a bit of the same color under the eye.
Using a brown kohl liner, apply it on your waterline, smudging it slightly under the eye. If you have a kohl liner with a sponge applicator for smudging such as the one I have, you can use that. Otherwise, you can use a small precision brush or small crease brush. Don’t be afraid to smudge it quite low under the eye, as it will help achieve the look we are aiming for.
Step 3: Using an angled crease brush, apply a matte black on your top eyelid, creating an elongated ‘V’ shape in the outer crease. Don’t worry too much if it is not blended perfectly, focus instead on creating the shape desired. Some of the next steps will help put this look together and it will look much better, I promise! 🙂
Step 4: Using the same brush, blend in some of the harsh lines. Add a lighter brown color above the black, and blend it slightly with the black.
Step 5: Add a copper glitter eyeliner on your top eyelid, winging it quite far in the outer corner of the eye, following the black outline you have already created in the previous steps. Add another layer for extra intensity.
Step 6: Add a good coat of mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
Step 7: Apply a dark red lip gloss( it looks more brown in the package, but for some reason a lot more dark red on the lips). I prefer lip glosses, lip balms and lip stains for the cold season, as my lips tend to get very dry and lipsticks tend to look awful 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this look!
