Bronze Smokey Eye Tutorial


Even though it’s Spring, which usually means pastels and light washes of color for everyday makeup, I am always drawn to bold, smokey eyes. With that in mind I wanted to feature a look that would be wearable for day but transition easily for night. This light, bronze smokey eye makeup is easy to recreate and completely¬†wearable any day of the week.

Bronze Smokey Eye Supplies:

  • Step 1 / Using a light brown shade, dust this into the crease to work as a transition shade; I used MAC ‘soft brown’. This step is important because it helps blend the colors placed on the lid with the light shade that usually goes directly under the brow.
  • Step 2 / Pat a shimmery brown shade on the lids using a base shadow brush. I am using Unattainable from the Lorac Unzipped palette.
  • Step 3 / Next blend a medium brown shade onto the outer half of the lids directing the color in a triangle shape so the inner half stays light. This shade is Uncensored from the Lorac palette.
  • Step 4 / Now apply a deeper brown shade on along the lash line and in the outer ‘v’ to add a bit more dimensions. I am using Untamed from the same palette.
  • Step 5 / Next line the upper waterline with a brown eyeliner pencil.
  • Step 6 / Apply several coats of mascara and apply false lashes if so desired.
  • Step 7 / Then dust Unspoken along the lower lash line and Unbridled in the outer half, from the same palette, blending the colors together.
  • Step 8 / Apply a few coats of mascara to the bottom lashes to finish off the look.
