However, before grabbing your makeup kit, you must remember that metallic eye makeup can be messy especially on high-shine shadows and overdoing this makeup can make you look the clown of the party instead of achieving the bombshell look. Do everything right and go for your metallic eye makeup that will flatter your Little Black Dress.Metallic-Eye-Makeup-2

Prepping up your eyes

Begin with bare lids and well groomed brows. Apply a primer on your lid to avoid the product from creasing. This will also make the glimmer of the shadows last longer.

Choosing the Eye Shadow

When choosing metallic shadows, opt for products that have creamy base. This will keep your look subtle. The consistency of the products counters the texture of the metallic result, making it more natural looking and edgier.

Pack It On

Gold eye makeup can be messy. You can have less fall out by using your finger to press the not sweep the pigment on your eyelid. Pack it on to have cleaner result.

Soften the look

To make the most of your metallic eye makeup, use a loose metallic pigment and flat synthetic brush. Tap the shadow on your lid. This will help hold the pigment sans the fall out. Pay attention to your eyelid and make sure it doesn’t go past your crease. Soften the edges using clean brush, blending the shadow slightly past your crease. Refrain from using too flimsy brushes since you might fling your eyes.


Defining your eyes

It’s important to give your eyes definition when wearing metallic. Apply pencil liner in your entire water line, top and bottom. Blend the liner in your upper lash line too. Rather than going for full black pencil, try using other dark colors to make the contrast look stunning.

Dampen a flat brush with water and press the pigment in your lower lash line. Blend it all the way to the inner corner and begin with light strokes. You don’t want to look like panda with too much color. Besides, you can always add more if you want. Clean the edges using cotton swab.

You are almost done if not for one thing. Add heaps of mascara on your lashes. Don’t forget your bottom lashes and you are ready for some rounds of vodka.  If you end up with little fallout, grab a fluffy brush and shake it off. You can use spoolie for stubborn specks that your brush cannot remove.
