The make up trend for 2018? Metallic eyeshadows! Manuele Mameli, Chiara Ferragni‘s make up artist and our #BBtips contributor, explains how to create a bold, shining and sexy look.
Even if metallic eyeshadows are usually used to create dramatic make up looks, Manuele shows us a perfect daywear look. Here’s how you recreate it step by step.
1) Apply eye primer
Thanks to the primer, we can create a bright base where we can apply the metallic eyeshadow. Primer also is required for long lasting looks.
2) Wet the brush
A wet brush avoid pigments fall outs all over the face. At the same time, the colour’s eyeshadow will be more brillant.
3) Apply the eyeshadow
Apply it all over the eyelid, just like we’re applying liquid metal on it.
4) Blend it
Choose an intermediate colour, to avoid a clear-cut contrast with the first eyeshadow.
5) Finish with mascara
Put some mascara on your eyelashes: what an amazing gaze!
