Eye Makeup Tutorial: Shimmering Bronze

I find black eye makeup to be too harsh for my colouring so the colours I turn to most often are browns and purples. Today I am going to show you my go-to bronze brown eye makeup look for a night out. This is quick and simple but looks impressive.

I’m using mostly MAC shadows and brushes, but you may find similar products from any brands that you have in your stash.


(Tempting, Mulch, Embark)

To start I always prime my lids with MAC paint pot in painterly. Then I blend MAC Mulch in to the crease with a MAC 217 brush.

Then I work some MAC Embark into the outer corner with a MAC 219 brush and blend it in with the 217.

Next I apply MAC Tempting on the lid, I use a Gosh shader brush to pat the colour on.

I line the inside and outside of the upper and lower lashes with Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze. Then I dip my 219 into the MAC Mulch and go over my liner with the shadow to soften the lines and give the liner more longevity.

A quick dab of MAC Phloof in the inner corner of the eye and also sweep it under the other corner of the brow for a highlight. Lash on loads of Loreal 4D mascara on the lashes to finish things off perfectly.




Tempting is one of my favourite eyeshadows, I love the shimmer and the bronze tone, eventhough the MAC website describes as a satin rich coco brown. Tempting really makes the green of my eyes pop. What is your favourite eyeshadow?


The blush is MAC fluerpower and the the Lipstick is MAC Peach Passion.
