- Apply eyeshadow primer of you choice all over eyelid.
- Sweep gold eyeshadow all over eyelid up to the crease of the eye with large shadow brush.
- Next take a darker shade of silver eyeshadow and apply to the inner corner of the eyelid and blend out to the center using medium angled brush.
- Take the medium angled brush and apply black shadow to the crease of your eyelid and blend outward.
- Using the cream eyeshadow in a gold or bronze color, apply to the middle of eyelid with either your finger or small brush. This will help the glitter better adhere to your eyelid and help create less fallout.
- Finally, to get a dramatic gold glitter look apply a gold glitter cream on top of the cream shadow in middle of the eye and blend.
- With the small angled brush apply black shadow underneath outer corner of eye. If you want a more dramatic look you can use a black eyeliner pencil or liquid liner. My eyes are smaller so I use powder.
- Again, using the small angle brush apply gold shadow underneath on the inner corner of eye and blend towards black liner. Just like with the black you can use a pencil or liquid eyeliner if you’d like.
- Lastly, apply mascara and curl lashes. I used Too Faced Better Than False Lashes to get a more dramatic look. You can also apply false lashes or individual lashes to create an even more dramatic look.
Here’s the finished product!
This is a very simple and easy look to achieve. For a daytime look, don’t apply the glitter and you have a simple gold smokey eye. I also highly suggest that if you do use glitter on your eyes that you use eyeshadow primer to prevent fallout throughout the day! Wet ‘n Wild’s product was inexpensive at $.98 and seemed to stick to my eyelid well with the help of the primer and cream shadow.
