You can always count on smokey eyes to make a bold statement for fall. But instead of classic blacks and grays, try embracing warm metallic shades for an unexpectedly fierce (and fiery) look. A gradient of copper and terracotta shadows on the lids, paired with gold highlighter and luscious, glazed lips is a simple way to spice things up this autumn.
When wearing warm shades like these, you need to ensure you cancel out any redness in your complexion. Apply a light layer of M.A.C. Studio Fix Powder Plus for a matte, airbrushed finish.
A bold highlighter is the best way to illuminate your skin. Place M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit along the ridge of each cheekbone for a radiant, but natural glow.
Shimmery eyeshadows have a tendency to crease, so don’t forget to prep your lids. Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer is perfect for preventing oily lids and creasing throughout the day, so it’s a must for dark or shimmer-y shadows.
Each and every fiery shade in the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is perfect for trying the hot metallic trend. Play up your lids by mixing together Scorched, Lumbre, and Dirty Talk to create a spicy, coppery hue. Dab Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eyeshadow in Gilded Gold in the center of the lid and inner corners for a sparkly hit of gold. Then draw a crisp wing along your top lashes using Butter London Glazen Liner in Disco, and trace NYX Cosmetics Pigment in Venetian along the lower lash line for extra definition. Lastly, add two coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara for dramatic lashes.
Glide on Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip in Girl, Please, a shiny terracotta brown to balance out the intensity of the smokey eye.
