Creating a Sultry Look Using Navy and Gold

Start by priming your lids. I'm using Lorac Behind the Scenes eye primer. Let dry. 

 

Use a palette that has shades of cream, taupe, navy, gold and black. I'm using the Lorac Pro Palette

Dip a medium sized fluffy crease brush in to your taupe shade. This will add depth to your eyes and act as a transition shade for the rest of your look. 

Apply to your crease. 

Use a smaller brush for your shimmery navy shade. I'm using a medium sized smudge brush. 

Apply to the inner and outer corners of the lid and connect with a thin line in the middle. Leave the center of your lid untouched. 

Smudge about 1/2 across your lower lash line. 

Use a clean angled brush to blend upwards. 

Dip a large fluffy brush into a cream shade. 

Apply to browbone. 

I used a flat lip brush and loaded it with gold. 

Pack the gold onto the center of your lid. 

Smudge gold onto the other 1/2 of your lower lash line. 

Use a clean blending brush and gently blend the gold with the navy shade. 

Dip a flat angled liner brush into the blackest color on your palette. 

Use the black to create a wing. 

Smudge the black onto the top lash line. 

Switch to a flat liner brush and press along upper lash line filling any gaps in your lashes. 

Use a black liner along your waterline. 

Use the same along the top inner lash line. 

Apply mascara and fill in brows. 

Your look is complete.
