Warm brown eyeshadow look

by Bionic Beauty on 10.Feb.2009 · 2 comments

I created this look for a dinner out with my family and friends who were in town. Since I really liked how the colors worked together, I took some quick photos to share with my Bionic Beauties!

My tools…

  • Purely Cosmetics cream to powder eyeshadows in Frost and Bronzed Brown.
  • Shiny Mama Precious Gems liner (gold end). (I *adore* this pencil! It’s my favorite for highlighting, using in the inner eye corners, adding glitter over a matte lipstick or gloss. Highly recommended for your makeup stash!)
  • Physician’s Formula Eye Definer in black (or any other black eyeliner)
  • Me by Mezhgan’s Look at {me} volumizing mascara (this is one of the new ‘tubing’ mascaras. Love it!!)
  • Short smudger shadow brush, normal eyeshadow brush (mine are by Smashbox)

The steps…
First, line upper and lower lashline with the black eyeliner. Don’t worry about being too neat since we are going to cover all this up in a few seconds.

Line lashline with black eyeliner

Apply the Frost eyeshadow (the lighter of the two) with a large eyeshadow brush, across your entire eyelid and up past the crease. Blend out the upper edge until the shadow disappears into your brow bone.

Next use the deeper brown (Bronzed Brown) on the outer half of your eyelid. Basically from your pupil to the outside corner. I used the larger shadow brush for this. Now blend that same application of shadow out past your outer eye corner a bit (don’t overdo it, tee hee) and also towards the inner corner of your eye. Blend up into your crease. (Think of creating a concentration of color on the outer half of your eyelid, but blending the edges of that color out and about…)

Grab your smudger brush and some more of the Bronzed Brown and dab some extra color to that outer half of your eyelid again. Use the remaining color on the smudger brush and “smoosh” it under your lower lash line. This will create a smokey effect over that liner that we applied back in step 1.

Almost done (whew!)
Using the gold end of the Shiny Mama glitter liner (the other end is silver and perfect for cooler looks)- place a gold dab at the inner corner of your eye, by your nose. Blend it a little by dabbing your finger on it.

I also used the same gold liner to lightly draw under my lower lashline. I basically “bounced” the liner under my lashes to give some hints of sparkle.

One coat of a fab tubing mascara for extra long, defined lashes and ta-da. You’re done!

Thanks Jessica! I am really loving the Purely Cosmetics cream shadows. I wore a dark plum one today and paired it with a frosty pink. Lots of fun! :)
