Metallic Eyes - Holiday Tutorial

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Hey there gorgeous! Looking for a playful look to rock this holiday season?  I have a fun little situation for you! I teamed up with Ulta Beauty and People Style Watch to create a fun metallic eye look.  When i first began thinking of what i'd do for this look, i immediately gravitated towards the typical metallic gold eye and red lips.  Then i thought... nahhhh too obvious! I wanna rock a bold, fun metallic eye this holiday season and who rocks this look better than anyone?  Why Gwen Stefani of course!  So i quickly reached for my Gwen Stefani for Urban Decay palette to help me achieve a festive look.

Here's what you'll need...


Step 1:  Using a wet brush (this is the key to intensifying any eye shadow... i like to wet my brush with this spray), swipe the deep blue shade in the Gwen Stefani  palette across your lids.
Step 2: Dab the gold shade over the center of the lid.
Step 3:  Using the deep gray matte shade, contour the eye focusing on the outer V.
Step 4: Using one of the light shimmery shades, dab a little in the inner corner of your eye.  
Step 5: Urban Decay's Diamon Dog (seriously one of my favorite shadows and quite possibly the most beautiful shadow in the word... trust)  across your entire lid for major shimmer!
Step 6: Highlight the brow bone using the lightest shade in the palette.

Step 7: Line the lower lash line with the same deep gray shadow used for contouring.
Step 8: Create a fierce cat eye by lining your eyes with a liquid liner pen.
Step 9:  Apply mascara and faux lashes for added drama (faux lashes optional).
Step 10: Apply the nude lippie.  Then using the gold shade from the palette, dab a little in the center of your lips for a little bit of interest!

Go from blah to hello gorge with just a few simple steps!  Seriously, this is such a fun look for the holidays.  So go ahead and enjoy all the festivities knowing that you look good girlfriend!
