In India, we generally tend to wear makeup depending on the occasion and the mood. And sometimes, we tend to not use or mix the metallic touch in any of our accessories. But when it comes to colouring the eyes, mashing and mixing it up should be the norm, especially with metallic shades that oppose one another. The look not only flatters the ensemble worn for the occasion, but would also break rules of going minimal sans over-the-top effect to flaunt.

Gold and silver with a touch of bronze, the perfect amalgamation that comes through with the matrimonial big fat Indian wedding saga for the brides or the attendees to flaunt, is sure a hot trend doing the rounds. Let the metal shine on the eyes, which would match the number you wear for the event. A perfect blend is what you need.
10 Tips To The Shimmery Look
1. Never blend one colour into another, or else it would form a mess which would be of the muddy kinds. Remember, metals reflect light, and blending the two would make a dull appearance to the eyes. If you want to be a shining Goddess at the event, focus on one metallic shade as the main, and balance it with the other on the side-line!

2. For the upper eyelid, start with a washing of the lids with bronze-copperish touches, right into the crease line.
3. Use a solid gold colour for the lids now and form a reverse-cat-eye look for the lower lash lines on both eyes.

4. They say a silver lining at the end of a stormy night is what we need, so let the same work for your eyes too. Bat your eyelashes for the lightening touch, with a touch of silver stencil or shadow to the upper and lower lash line. With the help of an angled liner brush, use the silver eyeshadow or stencil, swirling it on the areas around.
5. Now apply two strokes of kohl or Kajal in black for the upper eyelids only. With the help of a Kajal blender brush, blend from the middle to the left of the eyes, and then the reverse. Start again from the middle to the right of the eyes, and then reverse the act again. This would bring about a smokey touch to the upper lids. You may do the same if you please, for the lower lids too.

6. Get to the inner corner of the eyes and rub a shade of silver with your pinky finger there.
7. With the help of an angular but small brush, dapple a little more than what you would to blend the look here.
8. One shade of bronzer for the upper lids would be enough to subdue the flamboyant shine, should you want to tone it down a little.
9. Wash your cheekbones with peach and pink blush touches. Start from the cheek to the temple and back, and in one stroke only. This is because the eyes have to steal the show.
10. For the lips, pinks and reds or dark plums would be best to use. Fill the lips with shimmering bronze powder first and then apply two coats of lipstick. And blend the look for the pout effect.
Mascara optional, and you are ready to rock the sangeets, weddings, Diwali parties and more! Hope this article on eye makeup tips is helpful.
