Finally, we are in December and this year is almost saying goodbye to us all. This means, while the holiday season is on and you would be invited to many parties, there would be many getting their eye makeup done on the smokey lines. Don’t be boring, is what we would say! Smokey is sexy, but you can make it sexier and here are amazing looks of Glitter Smokey Eyes to share with you.
Glitter Smokey Eyes for NY Bash
1. Steel smokey eyes
Now this is a look that would steal the show, because that is exactly what steel Glitter Smokey Eyes do. To make this look come as glorious and elegant, you need to focus on a matte shade of steel to wash the eye lids with. The next step would be to contour the eyes with a dark shade of black on the outer corner of the eyes. Smudge the contouring inwards and then place a dark kohl line in any shape you desire, extending to the outer corner of the eyes. Between the crease and the brow bone, place a plum shade in matte tones and smoke up the area. The brow area should be highlighted with light peach. Heavy mascara is a must!
2. Shimmery pink smoked up eyes
Pink can be a good choice to add more glam to the smoked up look on the eyes, only if you know how to wear shimmer the right way. To achieve this Glitter Smokey Eyes look, we would first wash the eyes with neutral brown matte eye shadow, and then smear shimmery pink eye shadow all over the lids, but not the brow bone. The brow bone would have a touch of light peach or shiny pink for compliment sake. The outer corner of the eyes should be decked with dark pink matte tones and smudged inwards for a smokey glossy touch to come through. Complete the look with half lined eye lashes and optionally, false lashes and mascara.
3. Winged smoked up eyes
For the love of all things winged, not just the liner, we shall have winged smoked up eyes to flaunt at the new year bash. To achieve this look, you get to choose a metallic eye shadow color of your likings. Smear the pigment well onto the lids and then contour the outer portion of both eyelids with dark black shimmer eye shadow. Smudge the shadow inwards, all the way above the crease line and create a wing on the outer corner of the eyes. Once that is done, complete the look with a touch of shimmer on the socket and wear dark kohl liner with false lashes.
Gold Glitter Smokey Eyes Cut Crease
We have heard of smokey eyes, and the look can be emulated in many ways. But have you ever tried cut crease eyes, which seems to be the latest eye makeup trend doing the rounds. And more so, cut crease eyes with gold glitter? Let’s take a look at a couple of ways to wear cut crease gold glitter eyes. Grab hold of the right tools and cosmetics, and read on to practice these looks from now on!
1. Gold glitter smokey eyes
For the gold glitter smokey eyes, we shall follow the eyewash routine to begin with, using a brown matte shadow. Dab a touch of peach and blend into the lids for the areas under the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes. For the crease line, we shall take a dark pencil and draw an arch from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eyes, and smudge with a brush. Just above the crease line, we shall use a dark brown shadow and smudge into the crease line. For the final look, a dab of gold glitter shall be used to deck up the eyelids below the crease line, and a little space to add more dark shadow to smoke up th eyes below the crease. Heavy mascara and dark winged kohl completes the look!
2. The retro touch
Begin with washing the eyelids on each side with a shade of neutral brown. Then take a smudge brush and very gently on the crease line apply a darker shade of matte brown, all the way to the outer corner of the eyelid. With the help of a dark pencil, draw on the crease line an arch from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eyelid. Then use a brush to smudge the eyes. Now apply a lighter shimmer shade of brown which has warm red tones in it on the eyelids within the cut crease that has formed. For the final touch, dab a generous amount of gold glitter within this pigment and blend. Apply kohl and mascara, and wear false eyelashes if you want.
3. Matte toned cut crease gold
For the lovers of all things matte or for those that love the gold cut crease and would want a subtle touch for the day time look, here’s an idea. Draw a crease line with a brown pencil and smudge the arch inwards onto the lids. Under the crease line, wear your light shimmer gold with a dab of glitter in gold and smudge well. From the brow bone to the outer corner, wear a line of black shadow, and smudge it outwards. Contour the outer corner of the eyes with black pencil and smudge to perfection. Complete the look with heavy mascara!
4. Minimalism in gold cut crease fashion
Minimalism is what we love, and we can have that in golds too. To begin with, start with an eyewash in neutral brown shades, and then move on to draw a crease line arch with a brown pencil. Minimalism means to have a subtle touch and nothing short of the same. Once the crease line is drawn, wear your gold glitter below the crease and apply dark kohl liner to complete the look. To highlight the brow area, we shall use peach, and a dark line of kohl is more than enough.
5. Subtle plum gold glitter eyes
Keeping in lines with the winterish themes and colors, we shall use plum shades and golds together to make a sensual party look come through, or a wedding reception look. We shall begin with an eyewash using neutral brown matte tone shadows. A black pencil would be used to form an arch from the inner corner of the eyes to the outer corner, and on top of that a shade of plum shimmery eye shadow in one stroke. Smudge the lines well and form a crease. Below the crease, dab a generous amount of gold glitter. Highlight the brow area with white and peach shades. Dark mascara and kohl for the lashes and the lids are a must.
