I rocked this eye look to the Common show in London in December, if you don’t know who Common is YouTube him now, GO! (No wait…read this post first haha!) Anyway I’m no make-up artist but I’m rather please with how this look turned out and it was quite easy to do.
I first primed my eyelids with MAC Prep + Prime Eye in Medium. I’m not sure whether this product is still available. It doesn’t really prime my eyelids in any way but it neutralises the discolouration, you could easily just use concealer if you have this same issue. I then used Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the eyelid
For the orange colour I blended “Rule” by MAC into the crease and blended out and above the crease line. This is really important if you, like me, have small eyes that are spaced quite close together.
Afterwards I used the Barry M Dazzle Dust in “Bronze” all over the eyelid. This is one of my all time favourite pigments to use as it is so flattering on all skin tones and it costs next to nothing.
Afterwards for the warm brown colour, I used “Embark” by MAC in the outer V of my eye and packed on the colour on in layers whilst blending into the Bronze pigment, I used a bit of Rule again afterwards to blend the three colours into each other.
As a final touch to the eyeshadows I took Rule and blended it lightly under my eyes and then used Embark on top. You want to focus this towards the outer corner and make sure it meets with the edge of the eyeshadow on the lid, blend in for a smouldering, winged look. I then took a bit of the bronze pigment and placed it on the inner third to open up the eye.
To finish the look I lined my waterline with Clinique Kohl Shaper (Black Kohl) and wing-lined the top with Urban Decays Liquid Liner in Perversion. For my eyebrows I used the MAC Eyebrow Pencil in “Spiked” and after two coats of Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara on the top and bottom lashes the look was done!
