You can really make any matte shadow shimmer by following the straightforward tutorial below. Try this look out and let me know how you like it!
Step 1: Complete your morning skincare routine and be sure to apply SPF! Then, put on your foundation, concealer, and brow filler.
Step 2: Next, cover your eyelid in a super shimmery gold eyeshadow. I like using a gold eyeshadow stick for this step, eyeshadow sticks tend to be creamier.
Step 3: Press a muted brown (or whatever matte color you’d like) on top of the shimmery base you’ve created. In this look, I used Divine from the Lime Crime Venus palette. To complete your eyeshadow application, brush a highlighting eyeshadow over your brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes.
Step 4: Add a black pencil eyeliner to the outer corners of your lower lash line.
Step 5: Apply black liquid eyeliner to your upper lash line and create a wing if you’d like. I think wings enhance every makeup look!
Step 6: Brush on a lengthening and curling mascara and that’s it, you’ve successfully added shimmer to your eyeshadow and completed this easy eye makeup tutorial!
To complete my face makeup, I put on a highlighter, a blush, and a brown shade of lipstick. I locked in my look with a setting spray.
