THE TIP-OFF: SEPHORA COLLECTION COLORFUL 5 EYESHADOW PALETTE IN MILK TO DARK CHOCOLATE

Sephora PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz shows us how to nail a smoky eye for night.

Forget what popular television is telling you: brown is actually the new black. In this tutorial, Sephora PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz demonstrates a warm smoky eye using the SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful 5 Eyeshadow Palette in No.10. BECKY PEDERSON

PREP BEFORE YOU STEP
Make sure your skin is clean and primed so your makeup stays put. Gilbert cleaned our model’s face with an Ole Henriksen Grease Relief Cleansing Wipe and primed with Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Age Defense Eye Cream. Also, make sure your brows are groomed—this will frame your face and help guide you on where to apply your eye shadow.

THE STEPS

1. Press Light Copper onto your lid and blend up to your brow for a wash of color using SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Small Shadow Brush #15.

2. Pull Amber Brown from your crease to the outer corner of your eye to create a V-like shape with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Shader Brush #18, concentrating the color on the outer corner of your eye. Apply the color with your eye open so it stays in your true crease. Once you’ve applied the color, blend with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic Crease Shadow Brush #73.

3. Layer Deep Chocolate along the lash line and then thicken it on the outer corner of the eye with SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Shader Brush #18. Then, define the lower lash line as well, keeping the color close to the lash and stopping mid-eye at the iris.

4. With the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Smoky Liner #24, apply Light Beige to the tear duct to add light and open up the eyes. Pull the color along the lower lash line and press a spot of shadow on the center of your eyelid.

5. Dot Glittery Brown, a sheer color, on the center of your lid to give your look a sheeny pop. Use SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Small Shadow Brush #15.

THE TIP-OFF: SEPHORA COLLECTION COLORFUL 5 EYESHADOW PALETTE IN MILK TO DARK CHOCOLATE

Sephora PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz shares his steps to achieve the perfect daytime smoky eye.

Even the most diehard beauty fans among us can admit that, sometimes, a heavily made up look is not the way to go during waking hours. In this tutorial, Sephora PRO Artist Gilbert Soliz makes it work by using the SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful 5 Eyeshadow Palette in No.10 to create a casual but striking smoky eye in soft brown hues. BECKY PEDERSON

PREP BEFORE YOU STEP
Make sure your skin is clean and primed so your makeup stays put. Gilbert cleaned our model’s face with an Ole Henriksen Grease Relief Cleansing Wipe and primed it with Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Age Defense Eye Cream. Also, make sure your brows are groomed—this will frame your face and help guide you on where to apply your eye shadow.

THE STEPS

1. Press Light Beige onto your lid, and blend it to your crease for a wash of color using SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Small Shadow Brush #15. Before applying any product to the eye, Gilbert flicked the excess shadow off his brush to prevent shadow fallout.

2. Apply Amber Brown in your crease using SEPHORA COLLECTION Classic Crease Shadow Brush #73 in a windshield-wiper motion. This neutral brown will give the eye more shape and dimension. Gilbert suggests applying the shadow with your eye open so you get it exactly in the crease. Though it feels unnatural, you’ll likely apply the shadow too high if you apply it with your eye closed.

3. Using the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Flat Liner Brush #25, press Deep Chocolate into the upper lash-line so the color goes into the roots of your lashes. “This gives the illusion of thicker, fuller lashes,” says Gilbert. For this daytime eye, draw dots instead of a line to get a softer look.

4. With the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Smoky Liner #24, apply Light Beige to the tear duct. Gilbert notes, “It instantly awakens tired eyes. It’s an easy way to freshen up.” Pull the color along the lower lash line, and press a spot of shadow on the center of your eyelid.

5. Dot Glittery Brown, a sheer color, on the center of your lid to give your look a sheeny pop. Use SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Small Shadow Brush #15.
