Metallic means anything resembling metal or metals. I never thought of a brassy color being part of the “metallic” category. I tweeted her a picture of the makeup I was wearing that day. I was wearing Color Tattoo from Maybeline in “Pomegranate Punk”, she tweeted me back and said “Yes, that’s the look, can you please do a how-to?”

So, voila, here I am ready to bring you a metallic eyes pictorial. Thank you @Roefie33 for requesting!!

Here is what I used:

I used my Stila “In the Know” palette for the crease and outer eye lid color.

Please remember before you start a look, to make it last all day (or night), prime your eyelid with a primer.

  1. Apply the “pomegranate punk” color to your eye lid
  2. Using the crease brush apply a darker color to your crease. It doesn’t have to be the exact brown color I used.

3. Blend the crease color into your crease and the eyelid color

4. Add the darkest color to the outer part of your eye lid

5. Blend the outer eye color into the eye lid color and also about half way into the crease color
