How to Wear Metallic Eye Accents

Eye makeup has certainly taken a bold turn this year. Cat eyes and smoky shadow are being elevated to include daring new accents and graphic designs. We are totally obsessed with this new art-deco beauty angle, so we asked a pro to show us how it’s done! Check out how makeup genius Alana Dawn created on-trend accented eye makeup!

Metallic Eye Accents
Step 1:
Prep the eye with primer. Dust the lid with an espresso brown shadow like the NYX Hot Singles Eye Shadow in Lust. Make sure you don’t layer on too much shadow, you want it to look subtle and natural.

Step 2: Using a glitter liquid liner (like Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy) paint small dots along the lower lid, going past the outer corner like a dotted cat eye.
