HOW TO : Eyeliner-like Eyeshadow Look

Hey! Last night (or the night before. Idk. Some nights ago!) I saw a pinterest post of an eyemakeup look and I decided to recreate it! 

This eyeshadow look has a pointed end and totally dark on the outer area of the eye. I think this look is really easy to recreate, and it's fun! It has an enlarging effect even without eyeliner :p 


First, apply a beige / skin colored shimmer shadow and apply it all over your lid.


Now, apply an warm tone brown / orange / or any mid tone shade you like, filling only the half of the lids. And also bring it to the lower lash, filling on the half side with the same shade.


Take a darker shade, here I'm using an espresso shade, run it over the shade before. Blend it, but don't over blend because you still want to have that contrast effect between the 2 shades.


Now, taking my angled brush, dipping it into a matte black shade, I outlined the sharp edge, just like I would do with my eyeliner! 


Fill in the outline with the matte black shadow, leave the end side darker and gradually blended to the inner corner. This step is really easier than how it looks! Just make sure that the end is darker!


Last step! Highlight the inner corner with a shimmery light beige color. Then curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara and you are done! 

I totally dig on how the look turned out! It's really easier than what I thought it will be! I think this look is dramatic, but subtle in the same time. I'll definitely gonna do this look again as I usually depend on my black eyeliner all the time. And that's not healthy! :p

What do you guys think? Will you recreate this look?
