Here at MDC, we’re all about taking new spins on an old favorite. Now, we all know that the usage of brown and black shades is pure perfection when it comes to the smoky eye, but how about kicking it up a notch and livening up the look with an electricpop of color. Everyone needs a little extra color in their lives, so why not rock it right on your pretty peepers? Take a gander at these two hot, hot, hot looks created by makeup pro Elyse Reneau, and get ready to let your true colors show!
(For this fierce and fiery look we’re using the Urban Decay Electric Palette, which comes with a double-sided brush tool for convenient and pristine application.)
Step 1. Use a flat shadow brush to sweep the palette’s orange “Slowburn” shade over the entire eyelid. (You can also use the larger brush tool included in the palette.)
Step 2. With a small, square shadow brush (or the one included in the palette), blend the pink “Savage” shade into the outer sockets of the eyes. Using a slanted liner brush, apply a small amount of the same color to the outer corners of the lash line, winging out the color just a bit. Smudge the liner slightly for the smoked-out effect.
Step 3. Use a slanted liner brush to apply the palette’s “Urban” shade to the outer corners of the lash line, winging out the color just a bit. Smudge the liner slightly for the smoked-out effect.
