Get The Look: Metallic Smokey Eye
From Julianne Moore to Lady Gaga, who sported a metallic smokey eye on the red carpet, this is one of our favorite looks, because it’s versatile and fun and can be worn for many different occasions. Check out Kirsten’s makeup and how to do it yourself…
To get the perfect color match for Kirsten’s skin, two pumps of Skin Esteem Liquid Foundation in the color Tan and one pump of Skin Esteem Liquid Foundation in the color Nude were mixed. Using the Antonym Foundation Brush #4, the foundation was applied to the center of the face and blended outwards gently gliding over the skin for a flawless application. Antonym Baked Foundation in the color Dark was then lightly applied with the Powder Brush #1 to finish.
To add a pop of color to the cheeks, Antonym Baked Blush in Peach was used first. For added dimension and a highlighting effect, Highlighting Blush in Cheek Crush was used on top of Peach. This was applied mostly on the cheek bones and faded out into the blush for an ombre effect. Cheek Crush was also added down the center of the nose and the cupids bow to sculpt her face and accentuate her beautiful features.
The smokey eye look is all about building up the makeup until you achieve the desired effect. To begin building this metallic smokey eye, we started with Antonym Eye Pencil Noir. The pencil was gently smudged in the upper and lower lash line and worked into the outer crease of the eye. Using Quattro Eyeshadow in To The Moon & Black, the color Blue Moon was used with Medium Angled Eye Shading Brush #8 and worked into the crease of the eye. The color was pressed into the crease and then blended for a seamless edge. The color Slate was then smudged under the lower lash line for a pop of metallic shimmer using the Large Pencil Brush #9. Lastly, Obsidian was applied on the outer crease using the same brush for added depth and intensity to the look. Two coats of Lola Lash Too was applied to the upper and lower lashes.
To create a fuller brow, we used Eye Pencil in Dark Brown. The tip of the pencil was used to apply thin, hair like strokes to accentuate the overall shape of the brow.
Using the Antonym Lipstick Pencil in Koral, Kirsten’s lips were lined and then filled in with the gorgeous long wearing lipstick. Once again, Cheek Highlighting Blush in Cheek Crush was applied directly onto the cupids bow to accentuate her lips and really pull this look together.
And voila! Gorgeous smokey eye look that you can do at home. This Smokey Metallic Eye Look is one that can transfer from day to night and will look great on anyone. Please share your Antonym metallic smokey eye on social media, tag us and let us know how you did it.
