Shimmery Brown and Matte Black Eye Makeup Tutorial

Hello Ladies,

This is my first eye makeup tutorial.

Products Used:

  • NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pearl.
  • NYX Long Eye Pencil (Black).
  • BH Cosmetics 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette First Edition.

So, let’s begin:

Step 1:

Shimmery Brown and Matte Black Eye Makeup Tutorial

Apply eyeshadow base/primer on the eyelid.  I have used NYX Eyeshadow Base in Pearl and blend it well on the upper eyelid. This eyeshadow base itself is shimmery and it helps in building the intensity of your eyeshadow and adds shimmer to matte eyeshadows too.

Step 2:


Apply matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner (outer V) of your eyelid and extend it further into the crease. Let it be darker at the outer corner, gradually fading into the crease.

Step 3:


Apply matte medium brown eyeshadow on the outer 2/3rd part of the eyelid, blending it into the black eyeshadow on the outer corner.

Step 4:


Apply shimmery golden yellow eyeshadow on the inner 1/3rd part of the lid blending it into the medium brown eyeshadow applied on the 2/3rd outer part.

Step 5:


Now, take a shimmery brown eyeshadow and apply it just above the crease and blend it into the black eyeshadow in the crease (smoothen the edges formed by the black eyeshadow).

Step 6:


Apply slight shimmery highlighter on the brow bone and extend the same towards the inner corner of the eye in a sweeping motion.

Step 7:


Apply black eyeliner on the upper lid, lower lid and waterline (starting right from the tear duct).  Connect the eyeliner applied on the upper and lower lid and smudge a little below the lower lid at the outer corner. Set the eyeliner with black eyeshadow to avoid further smudging and you are done!

I haven’t applied mascara here, but if you want, you can curl your lashes and apply mascara or for more dramatic effect, you can also apply fake lashes.

I hope you liked the tutorial.

Would love to hear your suggestions and tips on eyeshadow application and blending.
