With a little bit of gunmetal-shaded shadow and a lot of gold, you, too, can look smokin’ hot. Just follow these simple steps from celebrity makeup artist Kirstin Piggott, who dolls up the faces of Kate Moss, Georgia May Jagger, and more.
1. Apply a gold cream shadow over your eyelids. Your favorite golden crease-free formula will do, but model Charlotte Palermino used Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eye Shadow Paint in “Golden Bronze” here. Simply use the applicator to sweep the gold shadow over your eyelid area, and then use your finger to blend.
2. Trace the area underneath your lower lashes with a gunmetal-colored shadow. Blend it in using a domed eye shadow brush. Try Benefit Cosmetics Creaseleass Cream Eyeshadow in “Strut.”
3. Run black eyeliner along your waterline and over top of your lower lash line. Charlotte used MAC Eyeliner in “Smolder,” and then she smudged the liner with the same domed brush used in step two. Piggott also suggests skipping liner on your top lid to avoid making the look too Cleopatra-like.
4. Finish with mascara. Using a curved mascara wand, which helps shape the eye perfectly, lightly wiggle the bristles up and out from root to tip. “You want the lashes to be spiky and loaded up with mascara,” Piggott says. “It’s a worn-in, slept-in look.” Be sure to apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes. Charlotte used Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Rockin’ Curves in “Extreme,” which comes out in drugstores nationwide this July.
