Monochromatic Eyes

The very thing that makes this look stunning also makes it easy to create: You’re sticking to variations of the same color. Any hue will do, but to avoid a clownish effect, apply more sparingly if the color contrasts sharply with your skin tone.

How-to: For the golden eyes shown here, Sarah Lucero, a celebrity makeup artist with Stila Cosmetics, used an eyeliner brush to trace just above and below the lashes several times with a light shade of loose gold shadow. Next, she brushed on a darker shade of gold on the upper lids only, starting from the edge of the lighter shadow and sweeping up to the brow bone. The light shade has a brightening effect, while the darker one adds depth. Last, she used a matching sparkly liquid liner to trace along the inner corners of the eyes only for “extra pop.” Complement this look with warm brown mascara, and ensure that the focus stays on the eyes by finishing with a barely-there nude lip gloss.
