Brown/Orange and Champagne Eyeshadow Tutorial

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing well! Today I have an eyeshadow tutorial for you guys. I’ve created this look with the Morphe 35o palette which I’ve had for a while, though I’ve never used it before now, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to see how creative I could be with it. Want to see how I created the look above then keep on reading.

Let’s jump right into it. As always I primed my eyes using my NYX eyeshadow base. Then I grabbed the palette and I used the first shade which I put into my crease. Here is how the palette looks and how my eye looks after that step.

My transition shade is into my crease, so what I did next was grab the fifth shade of the first row of colors, which I, once again, put over my transition shade in my crease.

Then I grabbed the sixth shade of the second row and the seventh shade of the third row, and I mixed them together in order to put them in my crease as well. I tried to put both of them a little lower in my crease than the shade I used before this in order to achieve a nice gradient effect.

As you can see the top of my crease is a little lighter than the middle of it, which was exactly what I was going for. Now it was time for some shimmery colors since those are my favorites. I grabbed the sixth shade of the sixth row with a flat synthetic eyeshadow brush, I put a little bit of that color on the inner part of my lid, and then I grabbed some more product to put on the outer part of my eyelid. This is what it looks like now:

It’s kind of difficult to see that it was quite a bright shimmery orange/brown color but trust me it was. I grabbed the sixth color of the third row, a bright shimmery kind of champagne color, and I put that on the middle of my lid where no product had been added so far.

Then I grabbed the fifth shade of the first row again and went in my crease to make sure everything got blended correctly. I just wanted to make sure the edges were blended the way I wanted. This is how it looks now:

I just grabbed some of both of the shimmery shades I used for the outer parts of my eyes and the bright champagne color I used for the middle of my eye, and put some more of them on my lid. Because of the blending I did, it faded a little bit.

After all this I went on with the rest of my face, as I always do, and then I went back to my eyes. For my lower lash line I just very easily put some of seventh shade of the third row on the outer part of my lower lash line and then grabbed some of the fifth shade of the first row and put that one over the rest of the lash line. I put some of the champagne color in my inner cornor to brighten my eyes and this is how it looks.

Now all I needed to do was put some mascara on and we would have an end result. Here we have a close up of the finished eye look and a picture of the overall look.
