Shimmery Bronze Smokey Eye Tutorial

by - Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Hey ya'll!  I really loved doing the "Pop of Eye Color Tutorial" last week and I got a really great response, so I figured I would do another one. I really wanted to do a smokey eye but something that is wearable and not too harsh for summer.
This makeup look is perfect for summer because it's not your typical black and gray smokey eye. This look will brighten up the eyes and make them look bigger but still adding drama. I love this smokey eye because you really can play it up or down.

Products Used:
Shimmer Smokey Eye

How to:
1) Apply a generous amount of Mary Kay's Cream Eye Color in Iced Cocoa from lash line to crease with a concealer brush or your finger.
2) Apply a transition crease color like MAC's eye shadow in Soft Brown or a matte bronzer as a transition shade in your crease with a big fluffly crease brush.
3) With your finger, pat Mary Kay's mineral eye color in Chocalate Swiss on top of the cream eye color from lash line to crease   
4) With your finger, pat Mary Kay's mineral eye color in Rose Gold from lash line to crease on the inner half of your eye
5) Using Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Palette, apply the Semi Sweet (matte dark brown) shade to your crease using wind shield wiper motions with a stiffer crease brush 
6) Using the same palette, apply Triple Fudge (brownish black matte) on the outer crease of your eye creating a V
7) Take your transition color soft brown with the blending crease brush and go back and blend the darker colors*
8) With a shader or pencil brush, apply Chocolate Swiss, Semi Sweet, and then Triple Fudge right under the lower light line all the way. Since this is a smokey eye, you can bring any darker colors all the way to the inner lower lash liner. The purpose of this step is to tie the entire eye colors together and smoking it out more.
9) Pencil in your eye brows with Mary Kay's Mechanical Brow Liner, brush out, then apply brow gel. Penciling in your brows will frame the face*
10) Apply a highlighting eyeshadow like MAC Nylon in the inner rim of the eye and right under the brow bone to highlight
11) Apply Mary Kay's black eyeliner along the upper lash line
12) Coat the lashes with Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara in blackest black
13) Apply Ardell's Demi Wispies False Lashes*
14) Apply Maybelline Staletto liquid Liner over any areas where the false lash is still shown*
15) Apply Mary Kay's black eyeliner in the lower water line and mascara on the lower lash line
16) Apply Mary Kay Nourishine Lip Gloss in Gold Rush. They discontinued this shade, but any lipgloss that is neautral with gold tones will work.

Once again, I know these are a lot of steps but the makeup obsessed in me doesnt care how many steps I have to do to make it look good. Any steps with "*" indicates that the step is optional.

If you like this look but think it's a little too dramatic, use brown liner instead of black and skip the false lashes.
