The Burgundy Smokey Eye looks great on just about anyone. Perfect for a night out, it makes blue eyes electric, green eyes pop and brown eyes smolder! We have photo tutorials, written instructions and a video tutorial. See it all below!
Step 1. Apply your favourite eye primer to your lids and right up to your brow bone. Using a medium sized flat eye shadow brush, press a burgundy eye shadow onto your lid, from your lashes up to your crease.
Step 2. Using a smaller, narrow brush, pull the same shadow underneath your lower lashes.
Step 3. Now with a slightly larger, fluffy eye shadow brush, use a matte warm brown or peach color (Urban Decay ‘Freelove’) to blend out and soften the edges of the burgundy shadow. Try using a windshield wiper motion in the crease.
Step 4. To really intensify the look, I took a red based brown eyeliner and rimmed the entire eye with it. Be sure to use a soft, smudgy pencil that transfers well onto the waterline. Don’t be afraid to be generous with your application and really work it into the base of your lashes.
Step 5. Finish of the look with 2 or 3 coats of black volumizing mascara.
