Pro Tip: How to Wear Metallic Eye Makeup


Step 1: Sweep gunmetal metallic shadow on the lids and slightly above crease. Focus the color towards the outer eye as seen here. Line along the bottom lashes as well.

Step 2: Lightly line the upper and lower rims with an Onyx gel eyeliner or eye pencil, focusing on the outer corners. For a softer liner smudge with a Q-tip or sponge tip applicator.

Step 3: Dab a lighter metallic shadow on the inner corners and blend into the gunmetal. Highlight the brownbone with a base shade in a matte shadow or just leave as is. Finish with mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
