1. Shimmery Smokey Eyes



To get a smokey eye look is referring to a style that requires a black base. This usually is by applying a black eyeshadow to your top and bottom eyelids, and blend it well with a brush. This dramatic look is often combined with a white eyeshadow on the inner corner, as well as glitter shadows to complete the final look. Follow the link step by step to get inspired for this type of makeup. Tips: use this makeup style mainly at evening outings as during the day can be a bit too much.

2. Rose Red Cat Eyes



A great makeup style that suits almost all kinds of eyes is the rose-red cat look. Start off by prepping your eyelids for shadow. Starting off with the lightest shades, like rose and cocoa. Blending them well is a crucial part of this process. Followed by darker shadows on the outer-v. Once you blend it all it’s time for the shimmer eyeshadow used on the middle of your eyelid. To finalize the look you can use reddish eyeliner and black mascara. You are now set to go!

3. Holiday Shimmer Eye Tutorial



For this summer look, you will need our favorite tones in the color pallet, beige, or neutral shades! You won’t be mistaken if you go for this shimmery makeup. So, after you prepped your eyelids, it’s time to choose at least 3 shadows of your neutral pallet and start by applying the lightest. Careful, don’t go for the bright or bold once, as they will achieve rather a pale look. Also, use shimmer shadow instead of sparkling as we are going for a summery, sunny glow with bronzing tones.

4. Shimmery Mermaid Makeup



We are being inspired by mermaids, their shimmery tails splashing in the crystal waters… Thus is this green and blue eye makeup that will glow in the sun! Perfect for summer parties, bbq gatherings, and also evening events. Suitable for any occasion. To begin with is by using brown matte eyeshadows all over your eyelid. The next step is the shimmery bronze eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eyelid; a shimmery olive green shadow on the center of the eyelid; and a shimmery blue on the outer corner of the eyelid. Use black eyeliner on the top and bottom waterlines, blue pencil for bottom eyelids, and finish with black mascara!

5. Simply Shimmer Makeup



Simple yet super beautiful makeup which can be used every day. On the inner corner of your eyelids apply highlight shimmery shadow, then begin with applying a shimmery gold shadow on the entire lid. For the outer corner, you will need a copper shimmery color, which you will also need to apply on the bottom inner of your lash line. You want these colors to pop, so don’t shy when applying. Expose your lashes with black mascara or use false. This makeup suits best brown-colored eyes!

6. Gold And Purple Shimmer Look



Another extremely beautiful shimmery makeup look is this gold and purple combination. Here is all about bringing warmth into it. Blending rose and brown eyeshadows as a base, and adding light shimmery color on top focusing on the center of your eyelid. The purple shadow is blended on the upper and bottom corner of the lid only. It is all about blending the colors correctly! Create a winged liner on top and use a black pencil for the water lines. The lashes will finalize this look!

7. Shimmery Gold And Blue Makeup Look



This makeup look you can achieve by using a beige eyeshadow as a base and to prep the eye for the gold shimmery finish. The golden shadow is added to the entire upper eyelid blending it well into your inner corner. For your lower lids use cobalt blue eye pencil which blended well will act as an eyeshadow too; don’t forget to apply it on your water lines! The blue pencil is also used as an eyeliner. This makeup look is finished with very light shimmery eyeshadow for the inner corner of the eye and of course black mascara.

8. New Year Smoky Eyes Tutorial

9. Shimmery Turquoise and Gold Holiday Makeup Tutorial



The colors in this look are super dramatic and best to be used during the winter festive days. This tutorial starts by creating a V line with an eye pencil on the upper corner lid; blending it with a black and brown shadow.

IF you have any harsh lines, blend them well with a clean brush and if you desire apply eyeliner, however, do not forget the mascara.

10. Dusty Rose Smokey Eyes



The pallet used for this makeup is a perfect combination of neutral and rich shades in both shimmery and matte finishes. Brushes are playing an important role when applying and blending the shadows.
