Spring Makeup Trend: Gilded Lids-Tutorial


Today I have a look for you that's pretty dramatic but still neutral. I've been incorporating dramatic winged eyeliner or an eyeshadow-wing pretty much in all my makeup looks, lately, so this look is no exception.

Some of the Spring makeup trends include dramatic winged liner and gilded lids with a sparkly metallic effect. Today I'm going to show you how to incorporate both into this look!

This is what the finished look looks like:


Step 1: Start with a primer and draw a line where you'd like to cut your crease. I used Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden and Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in Blonde to draw the line. Any cream product, eyeshadow or eye pen will work fine.

Step 2: Apply the eyeshadows you're going to use above the line, I used Makeup Geek Creme Brulee, Peach Smoothie and Vanilla Bean on the brow bone.

Step 3: Define the line with white, I used MUFE white flash color, but you can use a concealer or an eye pen if you don't have the flash palette.

Step 4: Draw another line under the white one like in the pic above, this will be the eyeshadow wing. I used Anastasia Dipbrow, again.

Step 5: Start filling the wing from the outer corner with black (or what ever colors you'd like) follow the line you made before as a guideline. I used Makeup Geek Corrupt.

Step 6: Fill in the middle part with a glittery gold eyeshadow, you can go a little over the black so the shades blend together nicely. I used Makeup Geek Utopia pigment.

Step 7: Continue the wing on your lower lashline with black eyeshadow, I used MUG Corrupt again. I also added some lighter eyeshadow on the tear-duct and some glitter on top of it. I used MUG New Year's Eve pigment and Make Up Store Orion glitter.

Also, I cleaned up the lines of the black wing with that MUFE flash paint again so the wing is sharp and not smudged.

Step 8: Add some blackish glitter on the black parts and golden glitter to the center. I used Violet Voss Meiko glitter on the black parts; it's actually dark blue but I don't have any black glitter so that'll do. The golden glitter is Masquerade Cosmetics glitter.

Step 9: Then just add lashes, mascara and black liner to the waterline and you're done! I used House of Lashes Pixie Luxe upper lashes, Precious bottom lashes and Urban Decay Zero Eye Pen.


Here you can see the bottom lashes and that eye pen better.

I hope you guys liked this look, thanks for reading <3!
