How to master metallic eyes

Gold and copper shimmering shades will make your eyes sparkle this season

Step 1. Apply an eyelid primer or cream base to ensure that your eyeshadow stays in place all day.

Step 2. To intensify the colour in your shadow, spray water onto your makeup brush then use the shadow wet like an eyeliner all around your eye.

Step 3. Blend the eyeshadow with a dry brush over the rest of the eyelid.

Step 4. Finish the look with dark eyeliner and lashings of mascara.

Tip: When playing up your eyes with metallic tones, everything else should be kept minimal. Use sheer colours for your skin and lips.
