Materials
- Neutral matte eyeshadow in your choice of shades
- Deep brown eyeshadow
- Gold shimmer eyeshadow
- Black matte eyeshadow
- Red satin lipstick
- Fluffy blending brush
- Small, flat defining brush
- Lip brush
Directions
1. To create depth and dimension to your eye area, begin by applying a neutral matte eyeshadow to the crease or slightly higher if you have hooded eyes. Use a fluffy blending brush and sweep the shadow on in windshield-wiper motions. Be sure the shadow is diffused without any harsh edges.
2. Next, smoke out the lower lash line. Grab your small defining brush and apply deep brown shadow below the lower lashes. Gently diffuse the color to keep it looking soft.
3. Ready to add some glamour? Use your flat eyeshadow brush to apply gold shadow from the inner corner of the lid to the middle. Don't go all the way to the corner because you're going to add a darker color there for depth.
4. Add some more drama to the outer corners by drawing a "V" shape using your flat brush and black matte shadow. Blend carefully, drawing some additional shadow into the crease to bring the look together.
5. Finalize the look by applying red lipstick with a small lip brush. This look works best with a satin lipstick instead of matte.
You're all ready to dazzle and delight. Stay pretty!
