Makeup by Brittany - warm smokey eye

With this extra-long winter we have been having here in Canada, I decided to warm us up with a pop of golden orange and pink in this smokey eye look! Don’t be scared of these colours—if you have green, blue or hazel eyes these colours will complement your eye so nicely! Brown eyes feel free to follow along too as you can wear just about any colour you like to make your eyes pop.

I used one palette to create this eye look. The palette is by ShopGlow, an artistry brand that is sold at IMATS! The palette can be found here!

Step 1

Start with a clean, primed eye lid. Apply colors numbered 1 and 2 mixed together on the lid (a golden orange).

Step 2

Apply color number 3 along the crease (a peachy tan).

Step 3

Apply color number 4 in the outer corner blending along the crease (a deep brick red).

Step 4

Apply colour number 6 as a brow highlight (an opalescent white)

Step 5

Apply a touch of the color number 6 (a candy pink) and use it to blend the crease colors up into the brown highlight. Doing this will make the pink almost undetectable but add that super blended look to the eye.

Step 6

Apply color number 5 in the outer corner and blend along the crease (a dark reddish-brown). This is just going to deepen up the look a bit and create more drama.

Step 7

Apply a black shadow along the lower lash line extending up and out to create the beginning of our wing.

Step 8

To finish off apply mascara on the lower lashes and false lashes—there you have it!

Apply liquid liner along the top lashes extending out to finish the wing. Then use color number 4 (deep brick red), to soften the edge of the black. Doing so will warm up the look, still allowing the black to be dramatic but softening and blending it out with the warm brick hue. This really finishes the look!
