My Ultimate Guide To Bronzey Eyes | The Tutorial

It's probably quite apparent now that I fancy a bronze smokey eye. The other night, I had the pleasure of doing a few of my friends' makeup for some special occasions and was 100% at the ready with a tool belt composed of the ultimate bronzey bits. These colours really make blue and green eyes pop, and can be pulled off in an endless list of ways. I'm going to share my top picks for a golden, glittering eye look that's sure to turn a few heads.

LOOK 1: Justine
Juz has appeared here on a few occasions now, and like me, she loves a good copper crease and some liner definition. For Justine's look, I began by applying a generous coat of the Urban Decay Primer Potion - looks like a genie's bottle and seriously grants the wish of long lasting eye looks - to prep. Next, I packed on my fave Urban Decay NAKED Palette shade: 'half baked'. To add some depth, I blended the Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Green Living (nope, not actually green) into the outer corners of her eyes. Finally, we agreed on some jet-black Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner all the way across the lash-line. Of course, I topped it off with a helping of mascara.

LOOK 2: Sophia
Sophia's eyes were all about smudgy liner and lots of blending to really smoke things up. I began by dusting 'smog' (another NAKED palette star) over the outer corner of the eye, and then applied my first line of the RIMMEL Scandaleyes Shadow Stick close to her lashes, but not worrying about being too neat. Post-liner, I patted 'sin', a light champagne in the inner corners and first third of the lid. After that, it was all about building up the RIMMEL shadow stick liner, finishing off with 'half baked' right in the centre of the lids, and a mandatory sweeping of mascara. Hey-presto, bronze goddess number 2 was complete.

LOOK 3: Melanie
It's great having all different eye shapes to play with, (the things I find thrilling) and I found that Mel's eyes really suited bringing the colours down under the lower lash-line. To start off, 'half baked' stole my heart once again, and was placed over the lids and smudged all the way under that lower lash-line. To blend things out really seamlessly, I decided to grab a fluffy brush and swipe the deep, matte brown; 'buck' in Mel's crease and outer corner. I summoned my RIMMEL Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Pencil this time, and drew a thin, neat line close to Mel's top lashes. For a bright-eyed effect, 'sin' was placed with a small brush in the inner corners of the eyes. This really finishes the look off, and all the colours blend continuously around the whole rim of the eyes. Can you guess what comes next? Mascara, duh.

Hope this served as some simple-bronze-eyes inspo and I wish you the best of luck in all your glamazon princess endeavours!
