Smokey chocolate and dazzling gold eye makeup Tutorial and FOTD

 

Hey everyone!

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 –

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 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.

    Thank u so much Heena! You could use Gold pigment from Colorbar (not sure if its still available) or Gold eye shadow from Inglot 430 Pearl, brown eye shadow like Colorbar Spicy Brown or Inglot 423 Pearl will also work. You can buy Inglot online if its not available in your city.
