As seen in my CNY outfit post, I decided to go for gold eyeshadows. They say gold is for wealth, so why not start the year right and go for golden eyes?! 😀 It’s actually one of my favorite eyeshadow colors. It makes my eyes brighter, at the same time, I feel it’s very glam. 😀
Here’s how I achieved my eye makeup:
For my eyeshadows, I only used Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio BR 209 (Voyage)
Instead of using the sponge and the brush that come with the palette, I used Charm Essentials Vegan Make Up Brushes for seamless eyeshadow application.
L-R: Angled Eyeliner Brush, Crease Blending Brush, Angled Eyeshadow Brush, Big Eyeshadow Brush, Pencil Point Brush
1. Apply eyeshadow primer.
2. Using the big eyeshadow brush, apply the gold eyeshadow (middle color on the Shiseido palette) all over the lids. Do a patting motion to pack the shadows and then, do a gentle swipe to even out.
3. Using the angled eyeshadow brush, apply the darkest color (leftmost color on the Shiseido palette) on the crease. Then, add more of this color on the outer-v to have a darker shade on this area.
4. Using the pencil point brush, apply the lightest color (rightmost color on the Shiseido palette) on the inner corner of the eyes. Use the same color to highlight the brow bone. Touch the crease for the colors to blend and remove the harsh lines. You can use the crease blending brush for this.
5. Tightline your upper and lower lash line with brown pencil eyeliner.
6. On your upper lash line, do a slightly winged effect using a black liquid eyeliner to add more drama.
7. Using the angled eyeliner brush, line your lower lash line with gold eyeshadow. Also, add the dark eyeshadow towards the outer corner for more definition.
8. Curl your lashes and put lots of mascara.
Note that you can freely use other brands of gold eyeshadow for this look. I just used this palette for demonstration.
