About this Look
A sultry, sunset look to welcome in the warm weather! Just thought I’d use a palette I rarely use for fun. Hope you enjoy!
I used a MAC 239S brush to apply all of the eyeshadows on the lid, cleaning the brush by wiping on a tissue between colors. Also, I tried to blend well between colors after each application, particularly where they overlap. I'd recommend using a clean brush for that, but this time I just tested doing a look with "one brush". ;) No primer, just very well dried corrector and foundation over it, as I have raccoon dark circles around my eyes, including the lid and crease areas.
I started by applying n°3, a taupe color eyeshadow all over my lid as a base color,then layering n°2, the yellow eyeshadow on my upper crease area just under the brow in an arc shape over the entire eye (meaning almost from above my inner eye to my outer point of the eye brow).
I layered a shimmer, n°6, a gold color in my inner eye corner to mid-lid and n°9, a reddish orange pigment shadow on the rest of the lid and in the lower crease area just above it.
I blended between the two colors on the lid then layered n°12, a copper pigment shadow over the blended area joining the two previously colors on the lid in order to make a better transition between them.
I used the n°5, a brown shimmer eyeshadow to make sort of a halo over the reddish orange area of the lid, layering it in the crease and upper crease under the yellow eyeshadow. I extended it (above) almost to where the inner corner gold shimmer meets the copper color.
I layered a small highlight of n° 1, a pale gold shimmer on my brow bone under my eyebrows and above the yellow eyeshadow. I like dramatic eyes and using all of my eye space. LOL! I lined my eyes with a dark, brown eye pencil, n° 301, KikoPrecision Eye Pencil.
I wore La Roche-Posay's Respectissime Volume Mascara in brown on lashes.Tada! Hope you like! This was an inexpensive palette from NYX that has nice pigmentation and can give very dramatic smoky eye looks.
