Bronze eye makeup is probably the safest choice of eye makeup for at least two reasons: it works on any eye color and it looks great for any occasion. Just like with a little black dress, you can’t go wrong when wearing a bronze eye look and today I will show you how to do it.
For my bronze eye shadows I used Colour Pop Cosmetics new pressed powder shadows. This was the first time I tried them and I was pretty impressed. They come as single pans in a sleeve for $5 each so you can customize your own palette. They are super soft, highly pigmented and buildable. The bronzy colors that I chose to build my palette are Bel Air, Note To Self and Top Notch and I added one metallic gold shade in color Save It For Later for a special pop of color.
After you prepped your eyes, take a fluffy blending brush and use a light matte bronze color (I used Colour Pop’s Bel Air shade) and blend it all over the crease and right above it.
Now use a smaller blending brush and apply a darker bronze color (Top Notch in my case), blending it right in the crease. Intensify the color in the outer corner of your eyes.
Add a metallic gold shadow across the lid to soften the look and add dimension. Go back with the blending brush to create a nice transition.
I always like to apply a winged eye liner with this look but if a winged eyeliner is not your thing, simply use a dark bronze eyeshadow or black pencil liner to trace your upper lashline and inner rim for added definition and make your natural lashes appear denser.
Highlight the inner corner of your eye to make them appear bigger and create contrast. I always use MAC Frost Eyeshadow in color “Phloof” for this step.
To finish off the look, apply 2 coats of mascara. My favorite is Loreal Voluminous Mascara in color Carbon Black. This step is optional but you can also apply false lashes for more drama. I used Lilly Lashes in style Miami.
