Golden Smoky Eye
“This is for my edgy girls. This is for my girls who love to follow fashion.”—Lori Taylor, Pro Lead Artist
It’s the most stunning twist we’ve seen on the smoky eye in ages. Think dramatic, fierce smolder spiked with beautiful gold accents. Let Lori show you how to get it.
Step 1: Create a flawless complexion by smoothing our Photo Finish Foundation Primer all over skin, followed by our High Definition Healthy FX Foundation SPF 15 and Photo Set Finishing Powder SPF 15.
Step 2: Using Tapered Shadow Brush #7, apply the Intense Black shade from Eyelights in Smokebox all over lid from lashline to natural crease. Then diffuse the color out beyond the outer corner of eyes, winging it out slightly to create a modern, less-rounded shape than the traditional smoky eye.
Step 3: Using Definer Brush #15, mix the Intense Black and Soft Pewter shades from Eyelights in Smokebox, and smudge along the lower lashline to create a slight drop shadow.
Step 4: Using the handle end of Definer Brush #15, crush up a bit of Eye Shadow in 24K (breaking up a metallic shadow will often make it appear more shimmery and vibrant). Then use the same brush to dab the loose shadow into the inner corner of eyes. Also apply to the outer corner of eyes and smudge along lower lashline over the black shadow.
Step 5: Finish the eyes with a couple coats of Bionic Mascara on upper and lower lashes.
Step 6: Mix Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss SPF 15 in Forever and Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss. Generously apply this mixture to lips, creating a super glossy, glass-like pout.
