Here at TBD, we’re always trying to simplify things for you so you see how easy it is to re-create our favorite red carpet looks. Yes there are 8 steps above but they’re not hard and if you remember to blend blend blend, there’s really no way to mess it up! We love this look because it’s a strong statement for when you want to bring out your alter ego, but not in a “whoa she’s got a lot going on with her makeup” way.

By now you’re familiar with the traditional smoky eye (light shade on the lid, dark in the crease).  But equally as dramatic is its counterpart, the reverse smoky eye (dark shade on the lid, light in the crease).  Here’s how to do it with chocolate and copper shadows in six easy steps.

TOOLS:

Eye shadow colors: dark brown, copper

Brow pencil (same shade as your brows)

Black liner (Kajal if you have it)

Mascara

STEPS:

1.To frame your eyes, really shade in your brows with a pencil or shadow
2.Fill in your entire lid with a dark brown shadow
3.Sweep a copper color along the crease for a sunset effect
4.Smudge the dark brown shadow along your lower lash line
5.Rim your inner waterline with a black kajal liner or a black shadow
6.Finish with two coats of mascara
