  • Mascara

Applying a warm matte brown eyeshadow

1. Apply a matte color

So, I’m going for warmer, brown tones, but feel free to use grey and black if you wish to do a 5-minute smokey eye look. Start with a brown matte color and apply this to the crease of your eye. 


Tip: Use a denser brush for more saturation. 

Blending the eyeshadow out

Then, blend out the eyeshadow by holding the brush sideways. 

Building up color on the outer corners

With the same color and brush, add a little eyeshadow to the outer corners of the eye.

2. Add a shimmery brown

With the same brush, go ahead and apply a darker tone. In my case, It’s this lovely warm shimmery brown shade. 

Applying eyeshadow under the crease

Apply a little under your crease and on the outer corners of your eyes. Blend the edges.

3. Add gold eyeshadow

Add a sparkly gold eyeshadow to the center of the eyelid using a flat brush. 


Tip: With shimmery eyeshadows, always pat and drag with your brush. You can see this technique in the video from 3:30 minutes.

4. Line the outer eyelid

With the same shimmery brown, dark eyeshadow you used for the outer corners of your eyes, line the outer bottom lash line. 


Blend the lower lash line with the matte brown eyeshadow you used earlier.

5. Add the finishing touches

I’m taking a smokey matte brown and packing it on the outer corner of my eyes for a more intense color. Tap it on, rather than brush it on, to build up color. Then, blend everything out with your blending brush. 

Lining the lower lashes with black eyeshadow

Tightly line your lower lash line with black eyeshadow. I used a very small pointy brush and wet it a little. 

Lining the upper lashes with black eyeshadow

Then, do the same technique to your upper lash line. 

Applying gold to the inner corners

Add a little gold to the inner corners of your eyes and apply mascara.
