Subtle Gold Eye Tutorial

Hello my lovelies!




I hope you are all doing well today. I decided to create a softer everyday look that still incorporates some shimmer. While this may not look like anything super exciting, I was stopped by several people that night, asking how I achieved such a look. I think the biggest key factor to any shining eyelid is wetting your brush, which is exactly what I did here. As always, this look is very easy to recreate, and can be done using any colors of your choosing.

Let’s get started:



  1. As per usual, prime your eyelids and set with shadow number one using a flat shader brush.
  2. On a large fluffy brush, place shadow number two into your crease and transition area. Blend out this color thoroughly, and layer to your preference each time to create a slightly darker appearance. Be careful not to make this too darkened up, as we are not trying to create an intense look.
  3. Now for the best part. Wet a medium sized packing brush, and coat the brush in shade number three. Generously pack onto the entire eyelid, adding as many layers as you would like.
  4. Allow the shimmer shadow to completely dry, then go back with your fluffy brush and blend out any harsh edges.
  5. With the same packing brush (dry this time), apply shadow number four to the middle of the eyelid only, this will create a slightly 3D effect.
  6. For the lower lashline, you can either leave it bare and apply a nude liner, or run shade number two along the roots of the lashes for a small amount of definition.
  7. On a pencil brush, mix shades five and six and apply to the inner corner for your highlight.
  8. Apply nude eyeliner and coat your lashes in mascara. Add falsies if you’d like.


And there you have it. A subtle and angelic everyday eye look. Please remember to like, comment, and subscribe, it helps me out a lot. Also don’t forget to have a fantastic hump day.
