The Golden Champ

The Golden Champ

I got inspired by our gold medal all around champ Gabby Douglas. First off I want to say congratulations Gabby! You were amazing and you made history!
I’m sure we all have noticed Gabby’s slight smokey eye which she does by just lining her lower and upper lashline with black eyeliner and loading up on mascara. So I decided to do my own rendition and of course I’m going to show you how I did it.

Step 1: Apply a eyeshadow primer. This will help grasp the eyeshadow and help it last longer.

Step 2: Apply a gold eyeshadow that has a satin or frost finish by dabbing the eyeshadow onto the lid from lash line to crease. I used MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters.

Step 3: Dab a matte black eyeshadow on the outter corner of the eyelid and the crease. Blending towards the inner corner of the eye. I used MAC eyeshadow in Carbon.

Step 4: Apply a liquid eyeliner along the upper lash line. I used Wet and Wild Mega liquid eyeliner in black.

Step 5: Apply a black eyeliner to bottom lash line and water line. Then take a small eyeshadow brush or a smudge brush, sweeping back and forth, smudging out the liner. I used MAC eyeliner in Smolder. Add black mascara to top and bottom lashes.

The finished look: a sexy smokey eye that can be worn on and off the mats. 🙂
