BEAUTY HOW-TO: Get A Two-Tone Eye

Rachel Adler

Makeup artists sometimes have trouble choosing what colors to sweep on the lids of models on the runways, so recently, the decision du jour has been to try out two at a time. Since we’re admittedly not at all as talented as the makeup artists behind the catwalk, we had to call in an expert to show us how to get the look.

Celebrity makeup artist, Jackie Gomez, illustrates how to take this two-tone eye look to the streets, below. Follow the steps and try out the look for yourself!

Blend a shimmery pale color, such as a soft orange, pink or white in the inner corner of the eye going towards the outer corner. The two colors will meet in the middle and blend together.

Choose a darker, soft color to sweep along the outer corner of the eye (like a V shape). Jackie chose blue and specifically Bossy Bobbi The Balm Shadow.
