Hi guys, today’s blogpost is this super simple yet effect eyeshadow look! It features a gradient from khaki to copper and looks like you’ve put a lot of effort into your makeup when in fact it was pretty simple. The khaki is very subtle and is almost an underlying colour which I personally thinks adds depth to the look.
1) Using a Pur Mineral utility makeup brush I take Charlotte Tilbury eyes to mesmerise in veruschka all over the lid. I blend gently on the lid but focus the blending on the edges to make it look seamless.
2) Next I take Stila eye shadow in copper on the centre of my lid with a Bobbi Brown eye shadow brush and pack it on. I find this brush to work very well at applying the eyeshadow as it is slightly denser than my average eyeshadow brush so minimises fall out.
3) On my Real Techniques Bold Metals pointed crease brush I take Mac coppering eye shadow in the outer v.
4) Using my Mac 217 blending brush I firstly blend the darkest shade in the outer v into the crease. Then I gradually blend inwards so all the colours link together and don’t look like blocks of colour.
5) If any of the sections don’t look right to me I go back over and apply some more product before blending again until I’m happy with how it looks.
6) Using the Real Techniques detailer brush I apply all the colours I have used along my lower lash line to tie the look together before highlighting my inner corner using virgin from the Naked palette
7) I finish this look off by adding a small wing using Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner and two coats of the Too Faced better than sex mascara on my top lashes and Mac extended play on the bottom.
I hope you like this eye look, it’s one of my favourites, I don’t usually recreate the same eyeshadow look over and over again but I particularly like this one. I would love to know your favourite eyeshadow looks as I’m always interested in experimenting!
See you soon 🙂
