Metallic Smoky Eye

_MG_8910-7
I rarely, if ever, wear gray (or grey-depending on who you are) on my eyes. I’ve long been team anti-gray, feeling that it made my dull green eye color even duller and the whites of my eyes look yellow. Well hey girl, hey! Today’s a new day!

I created this metallic smoky eye with the help of the Borghese Color Eclipse Eclissare 5-Shade Eyeshadow Palette. I think a few factors make this look a win for me finally:

  • Using a warm transition color first. I used the bronzer from the FLOWER Beauty Blush/Bronze Duo in Shimmering Goddess
  • Layering! I used multiple shades of charcoal and silver to create dimension, thus avoiding a flat, lifeless look.
  • Metallic! The reflective quality of these shadows gives the eye are much more life than if I were to have used all matte shadows.
  • Blue undertone in the shadows. The blue tone prevents the whites of my eyes from turning yellow!

color-pans

1. Smolder to smudge the kohl liner out and upwards.
2. Vapor all over lid to create dimension.
3. Lit at inner corner and center of lid for a pop of brightness.
4. Scorch along lower lash line for some sparkle!
