We love admiring the picture-perfect makeup looks of our favorite celebrities sauntering on the red carpet and posing gracefully for the camera lens, yet we never think of emulating their style thinking our makeup skills won’t let us reach flawless outcomes. This is where our makeup tutorials come in handy, not only teaching you the right order of eyeshadow application, but also inspiring and providing you with new ideas for coming up with fresh and drop-dead gorgeous looks every time you get ready for a special event or just on a daily basis. Makeup has become an inseparable component of our lifestyle, as we – women, always strive to look more fabulous and self-confident highlighting our best facial features with the correctly chosen colors and makeup products. With the metallic makeup style having a big moment recently, we decided to present this super-easy metallic eggplant eye makeup tutorial, perfect both for daytime and party looks.
The rich eggplant color mixed with purple and brown shades and flawlessly applied on your peepers is already a great way of making a statement, but when you inject a metallic vibe to the look, the result is twice as charming and irresistible as without it. So if you share our viewpoint and want to give this look a try, make sure you have all the necessary makeup colors and tools at hand, which are:
• Makeup base, foundation, concealer
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer
• Eyeshadows in rose, aubergine, purple, brown and black
• Multi reflex purple glitter powder
• Brown gel eyeliner
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Nude lip-gloss
• Makeup brushes
Step 1: As a rule, start from the base, which means cleansing the skin, applying a makeup base and then using a makeup brush to coat your face with a good foundation, not forgetting to use concealer on any problem areas. You may also set your makeup with a loose powder for a nice matte finish. Then contour your face using your favorite bronzer and blush or just the blush for a more natural look.
Step 2: Powerful eyebrows don’t cease to be in the spotlight in the beauty industry nowadays, therefore an important step is giving definition to them. Just use the most matching eyebrow kit depending on your brow tone and try to keep things as natural as possible, as this is the key to successful looks (ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony).
Step 3: It’s time for the eyeshadow game, but prior to applying any colors, make sure to prime your lids to ensure the long-lasting and crease-free look of your eye makeup (Too Faced Shadow Insurance). Blend a dusty rose/brown eyeshadow on the crease (Dusty Rose from ABH Artist Palette), while using an aubergine color on the mobile lid, making sure to leave the middle part of the lid clean (Aubergine from the same palette).
Step 4: Apply a purple eyeshadow on the middle part of the lid that you have kept clean (Punch Fuchsia from the same palette). Next, on top of the purple color apply a bluish brown dup chrome pigment (MAC Blue Brown Pigment). For extra shine, also use a multi reflex purple glitter powder (Parisax Star Powder in Ipanema).
Step 5: As for your lower lid, emphasize it with black and brown colors flawlessly blending them together.
Step 6: Apply brown gel eyeliner on your waterline and then coat your lashes with black mascara. You can also use false eyelashes to get that iconic Kim Kardashian look. Last but not least, apply a nude lip-gloss (Vintage from ABH) that will be in a perfect harmony with your intense eye makeup.
