How To Apply Gold Eyeshadow
Application of eye shadow is an art which needs to be mastered. Everyone cannot apply it in an expert manner. This video gives us a very easy technique of applying gold eye shadow and some simple tips you have to apply to get a perfect blend of eye makeup.
Hi, I am Myriam. I am a makeup artist, and today, I am going to show you loads of different looks on how to apply different eye shadows, different colored eye shadows creating classic looks but also some wild looks to go out. Hi, I am now going to show you how to apply gold eye shadows.
First of all, you use a makeup eye primer. We are going to use it pretty much on the half of the eyelid so not all the way up but above the crease. You can find a lot of different eye primers in the market.
I find them a lot better to use than using just compacted powder so now they do eye primer. If you like to use eye shadow, that is the best thing you can do, is use the primer before. To apply my gold, I have chosen three different golds and the first one is a dark gold that I am going to apply on the crease of the eye and slightly more down just a little bit like a C shape.
So, I am applying like this. First of all, I will do the same on the other side. So, you can use a large brush to do that or a structuring brush but here, I don't want you to be too precise because all the gold is going to blend all together, so on the corner of the eye, that's my dark gold.
Then I am going to use a lighter gold with a slimmer brush and with the lighter gold, I am going to go inside the eye area. Put quite a lot on your brush and make sure you blend it nicely with your dark cloud. I am starting to blend really nicely and you can start going slightly above it so you can blend your dark gold here with your light gold.
Okay, again, I have taken more. I always say the secret of good make up is layering and blending. So, layer and the more you layer longer, the makeup will last as well and it will be more intense.
So, we now have a difference between the light here and the dark here but it is nicely blended and it is really soft, then it looks really lovely. I will do the same on the other eye. At least three coats of the light color and blend it nicely with the rest so go above again, above the crease, and blend it with the dark gold.
Extend it slightly outwards and back inwards so they blend really well together. Okay, I want to finish the look on the top by using a nice glittering soft powder. So, a loose powder, if you use the loose powder on their own, they won't hold but if you use them on top of another eye shadow, they look fantastic so it gives it a really nice shimmer glittery look, really beautiful to finish here.
Then what I am going to do is with this powder, I am going to go slightly inside the eye. It will give a nice glitter look to finish off the look, so just there in the corner of the eye. And for that look, I am going to use a brown pencil.
Close your eyes for me. I am going to use a brown pencil on the top just in between the root of the lashes, not too much, just to define the eyes, okay, on the other side. It doesn't have to be a precise line, and I am going to do the same underneath, so look up so again, doesn't have to be a precise line, it is just feathery light, feathery strokes, and I am doing the same here.
Okay, I am going to use a little angle brush. Angle brush is great because it follows the shape of the eye, and with that, I am going to use my light gold. Look up for me and I am just going under the brown line that I have done with my pencil and I am just going to blend them together.
So, you are going to need quite a lot of gold here. You reach the lovely little sparkle in the middle in that corner. So again, you are going to go, you are going to do that about three times with your brush, not wide because you won't have enough eye shadow, okay.
I am going to go one more time on the other side and I am going to touch up with a little bit of mascara. Look up for me. You normally do the mascara last but my model was prepared before so I will just add a little touch, okay, and then clean up under the eye.
Okay, so now, we have the finished look so you can see it's really lovely
