Amp up the shine on your lids with this glossy eye makeup look that works perfectly with slick hair and lightly bronzed skin...

Celebrity hair and makeup artist, Nicole Abela, tells us how to recreate this  simple but effective glossy eye she created for our exclusive editorial shoot with the gorgeous Monika Radulovic. Keep hair slick and the base fresh for a finish that is beautifully understated.

Step 1

Apply a paint pot over the eyelid to even out skin tone on the lid and help make the eyeshadow last. I used MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly.

Apply MAC Eye Shadow in Honey Lust over the eyelid. 

​Step 3

Apply MAC Eye Shadow in Mulch to the top lash line blending up and then to the lower lash line blending up towards the brow, joining the top and bottom lash line.
