How-to: desert gold and shimmering smoky eyes


1. Flawless Base:

Start by prepping your skin with a hydrating primer and applying your favorite foundation to create a smooth canvas. Conceal any blemishes or dark circles and set your base with a translucent powder for a long-lasting finish.

2. Warm, Desert Gold Eyeshadow:

Apply a warm, golden eyeshadow all over your eyelids, focusing on the mobile lid area. Opt for shades like soft gold, bronze, or amber to capture the desert sun’s radiance. Blend the color softly into the crease to create a seamless transition.

3. Define with Shimmering Smoky Eyes:

Choose a shimmering eyeshadow in a deep, smoky hue, such as dark brown, copper, or plum. Apply this shade to the outer corner of your eyelid, creating a “V” shape, and gently blend it into the crease. The key is to achieve a gradual gradient, with the color intensity increasing as you move toward the outer edge.

4. Add Depth and Drama:

To intensify the smoky effect, apply a matte black eyeshadow to the outer corner of your eyelid, focusing on the crease. Use a small, tapered brush to blend the black shade, creating depth and dimension. Be sure to blend the colors seamlessly for a sultry, diffused effect.

5. Highlight the Inner Corners:

To make your eyes pop, dab a shimmery, champagne-colored eyeshadow onto the inner corners of your eyes. This will add a touch of brightness and awaken your gaze, perfectly complementing the desert gold and smoky tones.
