Smokey eyes are a seductive makeup staple, and what better time amp up the vamp than Valentine’s Day? Follow these simple steps for our favourite evening look. It’s a seductive style that suits virtually everyone, especially with the bronze twist, and is easy enough for you to make use of over and over again.
1 – Prep your eyes with a good concealer, making sure it’s well blended on the lid and under eye area. Powder the concealer with a fine, translucent powder using a medium-sized powder brush.
We used Inika Certified Organic Natural Perfection Concealer in Light and W3LL PEOPLE Bio Brightener Powder
2 – With a brown eyeliner pencil, line your top and bottom lash eyelid area with the pencil. Using an Eyeshadow brush, soften the edges of the pencil lines and blend into the crease of the lid.
We used W3LL PEOPLE Hypnotist Pencil in Brown
3 – Next, using the same eyeshadow brush, set your brown pencil with a bronze or copper shadow. Then with a blending brush, use gentle circular motions to seamlessly blend the shadow into the crease. Press the same shadow over the pencil at the lower lash line and blend away any harsh lines.
The copper shadow we used here was W3LL PEOPLE Elitist Shadow in Camel
4 – Now to intensify and finish off the look; with a slightly damp angle brush, pick up some black eyeshadow and run it along the top and bottom lashline as close to the lash roots as possible. You might even want to apply to the top of the bottom lashes. Then with your dry eyeshadow brush, gently smudge and soften the line. Apply your mascara, and you’re good to go!
We used Inika Pressed Mineral Shadow in Black Sand and W3LL PEOPLE Bio Extreme Mascara
Pair with a nude glossy lip, we recommend one of these !
