Metallic shadows add depth without looking dull, making them perfect for those who don’t like their eye makeup looking boring. On top of being a cool way to upgrade your go-to black smoky eye, this look is also incredibly flattering, and feels both edgy and sexy all at once. Mastering the complicated art of metallic eyeshadow layering can be intimidating, so you need to know the basics.
Step 1: Using a rich black pencil, line the top inner rim and outer corner of the lid. Add lots of the product on top of your lid as this is a very intense makeup tutorial.
Step 2: Buff out the liner so that it’s smudged out and starts fading up.
Step 3: Next, take brown eyeshadow and softly apply it into the outer corner of the lid and crease, blending throughout for a slightly messier, less defined look.
Step 4: Try using the silver metallic shadow as a wash on the lids and then press the gold into the corners of the eyes for a stunning, warm evening look. Be sure to use a brush here to gently blend all of the eyeshadows together to create a sultry, rock n’ roll-inspired vibe.
Step 5: Now it is time to compliment the metallic smoky eye look with flawless eyeliner. Start from the inner corner of your lid, carefully following your upper lash line. Invest in eyeliner with a foam-tip applicator that is specifically designed to resemble a makeup brush handle for the quickest, easiest, and most accurate application. Following the end of your brow as guidance, trace its edge to make the flick.
Step 6: The last thing you need to do is to finish your look with fake eyelashes. To apply them correctly, place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. Apply 2 to 3 coats of black mascara on both your top and bottom lashes. This will help achieve more natural, glamorous look by blending your natural lashes with the false ones.
