Imagine this: You're Olivia Wilde.
We'll give you a minute to let that fantasy sink in. OK, so you're not quite making your red carpet debut just yet, but for some reason you can see yourself test-driving the actress' copper eye from last night's Oscars.
Earth-tone eye shadows and red carpets don't usually jive; however, Olivia's glimmering copper take (by makeup artist Mélanie Inglessis) has us thinking otherwise. The rusted, shimmery color is thickly applied to both the upper lid and lower lash line and feels like a daring choice in a high-fashion sort of way.
As a part of our E! News Glamsnaps on Snapchat, celeb makeup artist Suzie Kim shared her signature tricks for jazzing up a neutral eye look.
Step 1: Dab a champagne-colored liquid eye shadow, like Le Metier De Beaute Indelible Eye Prism in Angora, across the entire lid.
Step 2: Using an eye shadow brush, blend the cream shadow upward. "The trick is to concentrate the cream shadow on the inner corner of the lid," advised the pro.
Step 3: Apply loose copper colored shimmer, like Mac Pigment in Copper Sparkle, onto the eye lid—this time concentrating the shadow on the outer corner of the lid. "The cream shadow really helps bind the loose shimmer so that it stays in place," noted Suzie.
Step 4: With a fluffy brush, blend the two shadows on the lid.
Step 5: Repeat lining the bottom lash line with the cream shadow and layer over with the copper pigment.
Step 6: Using a black liner, like Revlon ColorStay Liner in Black, line the top lash line, drawing it slightly thicker as you work your way out.
Step 7: Using a matte brown powder, like Tarte in Activist, smudge the liner upward. " This look isn't about crisp liner, smudging it creates depth along the lash line," noted Suzie.
Step 8: Add falsies and pack on mascara to make the eyes really pop!
