Makeup How-To: Bronze Smoky Eye

Bronzes, coppers, and light browns make for a sultry date-night look and work on any eye color.

Step 1 and 2. Bronze shadow works for every eye color. Press a medium bronze shadow from lash line to crease and softly blend the edges. Then, apply the same color underneath the lash line in a thick swipe.

Step 3 and 4. Eyeshadows stay longer when applied with a damp brush. Dampen an eyeliner brush to apply a brown shadow liner and blend upward. Then, use the same brown shadow underneath the lash line in a thin swipe.

Step 5 and 6. Make your eyes pop. Darken the lash line more with a black shadow liner and blend upward using the same damp brush. Be sure to do the same on the underneath lash line.

Step 7. Lightly add a shimmery shadow. Dab a copper shadow, a few shades lighter than the bronze one, across the lid to soften the look and add dimension.

Step 8. Very lightly trace your eye and blend in matte shadow. Outline the existing shadow with a matte brown one starting from the inner corner going all the way around the entire eye. This creates more depth and really plays up the smokiness of the look.

Step 9. Highlight the inner corner of your eye. Apply Make Up For Ever 7K Metal Gold Kohl Pencil ($17; makeupforever.com) just inside the matte brown shadow on the inner corner of the eye for contrast.

Step 10. Apply two coats of your favorite black mascara.
