Simple Bronze Smokey Eyes Tutorial (beginner friendly)

10:09 AM

Hey everyone!
Yes! You read that right! I finally made a tutorial! A tutorial on how to create easy, beginner friendly bronze smokey eyes using all shimmer shadows. For this look I used the City color spice me up palette/natural shadow palette and the black eyeshadow from the lacolors 16 color eyeshadow palette in Smokey but you can use any bronze and black eyeshadow you've got.

Lets get started!
1) Prime your eyelids, using either eyeshadow primer, foundation or concealer so the shadows appear more vibrant and also, last longer.

2) Apply the first bronze shimmery shade all over the mobile part of your eyelids up to your crease. 

3)  Blend some black or dark brown eyeshadow into your crease, the outer v of your eyes and halfway into your mobile eyelid.

4) Add some inner corner highlight with a white or champagne shade if you like how it looks!

5) Blend some of that bronze eyeshadow under your lower lashline.

6) Then do some eyeliner, curl those lashes and add some mascara to add extra definition to your eyes. I've done a winged liner here but you can do the eyeliner style you prefer and Voila!! That's it! You're done! Scroll down to see the pictorial of this look, product used list and extra tips!


Products used: 
  • @City Color cosmetics Spice me up palette/ Natural shadow palette (when I purchased the palette it was called Spice me up and I went to the website now to link it here and there is a completely different palette with the same name. And the palette I used for this look is now called Natural Shadow Palette. I thought it was some sort of crazy mandela effect like Shane Dawson talks about and ran to check my palette and nope. lol. It still says Spice me up! I guess City color decided that the name Spice Me Up suited their new palette better and changed it.) 
  • @lacolors 16 color eyeshadow palette in Smokey
  • @essence cosmetics waterproof liquid ink liner
  • @lagirl eyeshadow primer all over lid
  • @elf clear brow and lash mascara 
  • @maybelline colossal volume mascara 


You can see that the black eyeshadow I used in step 3 had quite a bit of fallout. You can get rid of eyeshadow fallout by
  • Wiping the fallen eyeshadow off with a tissue and applying a bit of concealer or foundation under your eyes
  • Using tape underneath your eyes which I will do a post on soon! Or something like a shadow shield
and this is the easiest one!
  • You can do your eye makeup first and then wipe away any fallout with a makeup wipe and continue doing the rest of your face makeup.

Hope this helped you!
