Eid Look: Arabic inspired gold smokey eye with a pop of color!

goldeotd

Are you bored of neutrals but too scared to try colors? Fret no more! This look I tried today incorporates best of both color palettes! I created this look keeping in mind those who will be celebrating Eid this year (including me) but this look is great for any special occasion. A beautiful gold on the lid, with a subtle black cut crease blended with soft browns, and underneath, a vibrant purple-pink duo-chrome, setting it apart from just another boring gold smokey eye. This is a great way to incorporate color to your eyes. I find golds looks beautiful paired with blues, purples, and greens! The Arabic inspired wing on both sides adds an extra flair. You can totally skip it if you want!

Breakdown of the e/s I used

apply primer first, I used Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer

Crease:

– outline the cut crease with a black or brown pencil (Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl)

– smudge it with a pencil brush and darken in with a intense black eyeshadow (Storm Palette)

– blend overall with a soft brown color (Mac Soft Brown) to create a diffused effect on the outer crease

– darken the area closer to the black cut crease with a neutral mid-town brown (Mac Cork) and blend the brown with the black

Lid:

– apply a gold cream base (Maybeline Color Tattoo in Bold Gold)

– apply a shimmery gold eyeshadow over the base (Inglot AMC Shine 11)

– blend any harsh edges with a clean brush, you can go over with soft brown as well

 

*Line your eyes with a black liquid or gel liner

*Keep the middle part thicker and more rounded and create an intense wing on both the outer and inner corner (arabic inspired)

 

Underneath:

– line the waterline with a black pencil (Rimmel Scandaleyes)

– apply the duochrome purple (Mac Stars N Rockets) on the bottom line and drag it underneath both the wings

Browbone:

– highlight the brow bone with a soft white or cream color (Lorac Pro Cream)

 

*Darken the cut crease with the black again

*Apply mascara on both top and bottom lashes and add falsies if you like

And VOILA!
