FOTD: Metals On Metals + Tip When Combining Metal Shades
For the past few months, I've been an eyeshadow creature because of work; I always gotta look my best both for meeting Clients, old and new, and when handling events (#IWorkInPR). Lately, I've been keen on metals and this is one of the looks I came up with. I used to avoid combining metals with metals for fear of looking like I have metal shrapnels on my eyes, but I found out the key is to wear metals in complementing colors and as much as possible, from one shade family only to combat the all too shiny look. Eureka! Sharing a quick tutorial of this eye makeup look with you today!
For my eyes, I chose the shade family of Neutrals; it's always the easiest to work with and at the same time, the most flattering for my skin tone.
STEP 1: Choose a metallic shade for your lower lids; it could be gold, champagne, or silver, depending on what you feel like wearing.
STEP 2: Choose a midtone color for your above crease such as beige, taupe, tan, or gray.
STEP 3: Choose a darker shade for your outer crease such as chocolate brown, charcoal, or black.
STEP 4: Apply mascara and eyeliner as usual. For my lower lids, I used a Dark Brown eye pencil to line my eyes and then followed with a chocolate brown eyeshadow on the outer to middle portion of the lower lash line and then a pale gold eyeshadow on the middle to inner portion of the same area.
STEP 5: Use a highlighting color (other than the one you used on your lower lids for distinction, but still complements your color choices) on your tear duct folds to lift the eyes.
