Get the look…

This years beauty looks we saw on the Fall 2015 runways were earthy and neutral. Dominating the catwalk were the bronze and metallic earthy tone eyeshadows, which is both universally flattering and appropriate for nearly any occasion. The metallic shade is also the perfect way to transition any fresh faced makeup into the richer hues that have become synonymous with glamorous wedding beauty.

Do the Eyes First…

  • Priming the eye is the first step, paint pots are an excellent choice as a base because they also act as an eye primer ensuring that the shadow does not crease or fade.  Otherwise you can use foundation and set with powder.
  • Using loose pigments gives you the best blending ability, which is necessary for creating a great smoky eye. You have the ability to use pressed powders and cream shadows as well, but for beginners the easiest application is to use loose eyeshadow.
  • The best makeup brush for a smoky eye is a domed eyeshadow brush, which is rounded at the top, also have on hand a large fluffy one.
  • Mascara is the one product no girl should leave home without.  It  finishes and gives the eye a three dimensional appearance.   Place your  wand right in at the roots  and wiggle the brush in an upward  outward motion.  You may find it easier if you close each eye when you apply as you can get the bottom lashes at the same time.  If you want to use an eyelash curler this needs to be done before the mascara is applied.
  • And lastly wipe away any fall out before you apply your foundation and concealer.


Use a Paint pot instead of concealer before eyeshadow.  It will make the metallic makeup pop with its ability to reflect light and create dimension.

Tom Ford created this highlighting and illuminating powder duo to capture the two most flattering types of natural light on the skin: a soft white shade is like the luminous glow of daylight, and a radiant golden shade is like the romantic illusion of candlelight.


A bronzed eye would also look killer paired with a brick red-brown lip for a dramatic night time look.   As seen in the next look created by Hollywood Brides Creative Director.
