How to Wear Metallic Eye Makeup This Fall: Tutorial
The flaming sun is day by day becoming miserly, skimping its warm rays and holding them inside, while the trees on the contrary are in no way greedy in providing us with the most vibrant and zesty colors ever. Iridescent fall is on, which means that it is high time for the Mother Nature to show off the whole beauty of buttery yellow, burgundy red and amber orange foliage in the background of metallic blue sky morphing into grayish at times with expressive pieces of clouds floating so serenely across the sky. However, you can do more than just admire the miracles worked by our Mother Nature. Dare to become just another vibrant color of chameleon or rainbow by following our step-by-step metallic eye makeup tutorial with a hint of blue that will not only add fresh new shades in the nature but will also provide it with shimmering metallic light.
The earthy shades mixed with dodger blue look really stunning and autumn-worthy but the addition of dark mauve shade may double the sultry look and create an amalgam never to be sponged of the memory. Here is what beauty products you should have at your disposal and what steps you should take to become one of the shades of the autumnal chameleon:
• Makeup primer, foundation
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer (We recommend Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
• Gel eyeliner in brown and blue
• Eyeshadows in black, neutral brown, light caramel brown, dark brown, light gold, metallic rose champagne
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Nude dark mauve lipstick
• Makeup brushes

Step 1: Fall is when your skin needs a particular care and a slightly lighter foundation to cover your face camouflaging any skin flaws. Apply it over your favorite makeup primer and add a golden glow to your cheeks using a lovely blush color.
Step 2: Bold, bushy eyebrows are all the rage now. Cara Delevingne and Lilly Collins are a case in point and the spring 2016 RTW runway shows came to once more prove us that bold eyebrows may become one of your powerful weapons for a gorgeous look. So keep pace with the time and contour your eyebrows using brown pomade (ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony), thickening them naturally and making them softly polished. Then apply an eye primer on your lids to make them super-smooth for your further perfect metallic eye makeup.
Step 3: Now that you have created an ideal basis, continue the process by applying brown gel eyeliner (Atelier Paris Eyeliner in Brown) as close to your lash line as you can, creating a tiny faded wing. To make it more eloquent apply a black eyeshadow (Noir from ABH) on top of the gel liner and blend it with a neutral brown (Fawn from ABH).
Step 4: Start bringing a real flirting game of brown shades on your eyelid. In the high crease apply a light caramel brown eyeshadow (Salted Caramel from Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette), and then complement it with a darker brown shade (Semi Sweet from the same palette) applied a little bit lower in the crease. To add some glow to your naturally brown eyelid apply a light gold eyeshadow (Surface of the Sun from ABH) to the inner corner of your eye and right under the brow.
Step 5: The time for metallic eyes has finally approached to give your whole look some electrified strokes. Pass to your mobile eyelid coating it with metallic rose champagne eyeshadow (Pink Champagne from ABH) applying with a wet brush for extra shine. Keep on showing off your artistic skills by creating a wing on your upper lash line with blue eyeliner (Ocean Waterproof Cream Colour from ABH) gently uniting it with the faded wing of the lower lash line. The effect is just scene-stealing – high-wattage electricity fiercely running across the lid.
Step 6: Apply black mascara for pushing up your lashes and magnifying your penetrating and cutting look, afterwards using false lashes (Red Cherry #43 lashes) for extra volume and density.
Step 7: Finally finish off your autumnal metallic makeup by coating your lips with a nude dark mauve lipstick (Veronica liquid lipstick from ABH) to make them full and fruity and hotfoot it out of your home to saunter among crunching multicolored leaves.
