This is my favorite eyeshadow look for summertime because it’s super easy and the golden tones look great with a tan.
What you need:
2. Gold, golden bronze, shimmery dark brown and matte brown eyeshadows. I used the shades Half baked, Smog, Darkhorse and Buck from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Some similar shadows include Maybelline Expertwear Eyeshadow in Sunbaked Neutrals and bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Soundtrack.
3. Black or brown mascara. I used Revlon Double Twist which has been discontinued but any mascara will work fine.
4. An eyeshadow shading brush and a blending brush. My shading brush is from Rite Aid and my blending brush is the fluffy end of the brush that came with the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. Ecotools makes good quality, affordable brushes and Sigma makes great brushes too.
Step 1: Prime your eyelids using a dab of eyeshadow primer, rubbing it in with your finger. This step is important because it prevents your eyeshadow from creasing or sliding off in the heat.
Step 2: Using your shader brush, apply gold eyeshadow on the inner 2/3 of your eyelid, including the inner corner.
Step 3: Using the same brush, apply the golden bronze shade on the outer half of the eyelid, blending it into the gold shadow.
Step 4: Next, using your fluffy blending brush, apply the matte brown shade to your crease, blending it into the bronze and gold colors.
Step 5: Add some of the shimmery dark brown shade to the outer corner and crease using the same fluffy brush. Make sure to blend it into the other colors. You can skip this step if you want the look to be a bit more subtle.
Step 6: Apply mascara to top and bottom lashes. Now you’re done!
