Gold, bronze & metallic shimmers with a warm palette will be very hot this coming summer season, wear it by applying a wash of colour to the lids, gently blending upwards into the brow bone, taking it lighter as you blend, finish by taking a little of the gold into the inner corners of the eye & use brown liner for a softer finish to the lash lines. Match this with a little bronzer on the cheeks & luscious red lips - set to be huge this summer!
To get this look try Urban Decay's Cream Shadow in 'Beautifully Bronzed', they are easy to blend into a soft 'washed over' colour effect & unlike a lot of other cream shadows stay put all day & won't crease. Apply with the finger tips (a little goes a long way!) & gently blend over the lid, then with a blending brush gently sweep back & forth to blend the colour out taking your brush upwards to the brow bone, after this take a cotton bud & add a tiny amount of the gold into the inner corners & blend. If you would like to intensify the look take a dark brown eyeshadow powder into the socket line & outer corners of the eye with the blending brush (best to use a shimmer/frost shadow as they will blend better into the cream). For the lash lines either use the same dark brown shadow as you did for the sockets & with slanted eye brush take it along both the top & bottom lashes, or for the ultimate metallic finish why not try Urban Decay's Liquid Liner Vintage in 'Dark Metallic Brown'.
