Jarrold loves...the metallic eye


Go behind the scenes of our beauty shoot with M.A.C at Jarrold and discover how you can get this autumn’s metallic eye look.

The metallic eye is a makeup trend for AW17 with coppers and browns set to warm up the colder months. Here’s how you can get the look:

Step 1: Prep. Cleanse and moisturise. Prep skin with M.A.C Strobe Cream Peachlite to add warmth to the skin for autumn.

Step 2: Eyes. Start with your eyes so that any residue that falls on your face can easily be removed before you apply your base

a. Apply concealer over your eye lid to even out colour

b. Take the M.A.C kohl eye pencil in Teddy to draw over your eyelid. Smudge with a brush over the lid.

c. Use the M.A.C bronzing powder in socket line and blend over your eyelid. This will help soften the look of the eyeshadow.

d. Use M.A.C eye shadow in Ruddy and buff onto your eyelid, gradually building up the colour. Blend to diffuse any edges.

e. Take the M.A.C kohl eye pencil in Teddy and apply to the lower lashline and waterline.

f. Take the M.A.C eye shadow in Ruddy and apply over the eye pencil along the lower lash line.

g. Finish with a coat of M.A.C Extreme Dimension mascara in black and tidy up brows with brow gel and the M.A.C eyebrow pencil in Fling.

Step 3: Base. Apply your foundation (Jemima used M.A.C Mineralize Moisture foundation), use concealer under your eyes and over blemishes, set with M.A.C Next To Nothing powder.  Add colour with the M.A.C bronzing powder over top of your forehead, down your nose, on cheekbones and on jawline to create a natural glow. For a natural blush, apply a pink blusher to your cheekbones using a brush.

Step 4: Finishing touches. Add luminosity to your skin using the M.A.C Cream Colour base in Shell to your browbone, cheekbone and cupid’s bow (Jemima used M.A.C Prep and Prine Oil stick underneath the cream colour base to hydrate the skin). Complete the look with a nude pink lip (Jemima used the M.A.C lip liner in Whirl and the M.A.C Viva Glam II lipstick in AA6).
