About the Expert
Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a Celebrity Makeup Artist and today, I'm going to show you how to make your eye shadows pop. So, one of my favorite ways to instantly add pop to your eye shadows is to use a metallic instead of your regular boring browns. Metallic eye shadows naturally reflect light and instantly brighten the eyes and it's a great way to instantly add sizzle to your eye shadow look. So, to get the look, I'm going to use L'oreal Paris Hip Studio Secrets Metallic Dous in Charged. So, for Chelsea I've chosen a really beautiful copper shade that's really metallic along with a nice rust color to contour. We're going to apply that metallic at the base of the lid and I chose this color because I want it to go with her beautiful red shirt; it's going to work really well with her skin tone and it's definitely going to be a color that's noticeable. This is a great look for an evening out. So, we've already prepped her eyelid with a little bit of foundation and a little powder just so whatever eye shadow we apply onto that lid stays all day long. It's a great way to really make your eye shadow last. Just kind of blending into the brow bone. As you can see, it really helps to brighten her eye. See the difference between the two eyes? Now, I'm going to use a little bit of a darker rust color into the contour. If you wanted to, you can actually just stop with that initial copper, but I just want to add a little bit more; just applying it in a V form on the outside corners of the eyes. What the contour color does is it adds depth to the outside corners of the eyes so it really brings them out. So, I love this color on Chelsea, if you have a little lighter skin tone, you could actually just use a little less pigment. With darker skin tones, you want to add a little bit more so there's more visible obviously. So, on Chelsea, this is a lighter color for her and that's going to highlight her lid and really bring that eyelid forward. And then the rust, again, on the outside corners of the eyes really is going to help elongate that eye. So, what I love about this color is actually it's pretty much colors that you already naturally have, has in her skin tones, except it's a metallic form. So, it's going to look a little more natural. So, if you're not use to doing metallics, you might want to stick with neutrals, neutral colors or something that's a little bit warmer or similar to your skin tone. It's just going to give you more of a natural effect. It's a great way to transition from your flat colors to metallic colors. So, I've completed Chelsea's bold eye shadow look and I paired it again with a pale cheek, a nice peach cheek, a nice peach mouth; nothing that competes with the bold eye shadow. And one final tip, if you do have a tendency to have falling eye shadow, just do your foundation afterwards. So, there you have it, that's how you make your eye shadows pop.
