Today I’m doing an eye makeup tutorial with a dazzling gold on the lid center smoked out with brown and blackened green. The look is perfect for an ethnic outfit for a festive event, a pooja or a wedding ceremony. It can be also be worn by brides to bring their eyes into focus with the dazzle of gold. I had posted this look sometime back and had a few requests for the tutorial –
Products needed for this look :
- MAC Paint pot – Indianwood
- MAC eye shadow – Carbonized
- MAC pigment from Surf the Ocean pigment set (Surf Baby collection)
- Bobbi Brown long wear gel liner – Caviar Ink
- Bourjois Khol and Contour eye pencil – Vert Expressif
- Bourjois 1001 Cils mascara
- Maxfactor eye brown pencil – Ebony
Step 1 : Apply MAC paint pot in Indianwood all over lid as base
Step 2 : Apply a dark chocolate brown eye shadow in the crease using MAC 219 brush
Step 3 : Blend the eye shadow in the crease using a fluffy brush like MAC 217
Step 4 : Apply a true gold pigment with a wet brush on the lid.
You can also use a gold eye shadow but the look will be more subtle, use a damp brush to give a more intense effect.
Step 5 : Blend the gold using a blending brush (MAC 217)
Step 6 : Apply kohl on waterline. I have used a blackened green kohl pencil, you can use black or a blackened plum.
Step 7 : Smudge the kohl on lower lash line using a pencil brush
Step 8 : Apply gel liner on upper lash line.
I have applied Bobbi Brown gel liner in Caviar Ink.
Step 9 : Finish off with mascara!
I have skipped highlighter as the gold itself is pretty strong, you can see compact powder on the brow bone for a clean look.
Finished look :
