Smokey Burgundy Eye Tutorial

I’m a sucker for burgundy eyeshadows, and am so glad that Fall is finally here and I can whip them out. Here’s a smokey, dramatic look using some of my favorites!

Burgundy Eye Both


1.) Prime with whatever primer you use. I used Lorac Behind the Scenes.

2.) With your finger, pat Coloupop Central Perk onto the lid as thick as you can get it. I found this helped intensify the other colors as well as add to the sticky base for the shadows to adhere to.

3.) Blend the crease with Makeup Geek Frappe

4.) Pack Makeup Geek Bitten all over Central Perk, avoiding the crease. Blendy blend it, ya know the drill.

5.) Pat Deep Purple from Lorac Pro Palette onto the outer and inner corners of the eye, creating a globe effect. With a clean, fluffy brush, blend it into Bitten to give it the effect that it’s a darker, cooler burgundy, not purple. (If you want to stay in one makeup brand, Makeup Geek Purple Rain looks like it would work… I just don’t own it :-p)

6.) With your finger, pat Makeup Geek Burlesque onto the center of the eyes. The shimmer will give the eye some more dynamic without lightening the color too much. Blendy blend.

7.) Line the bottom lash line with Bitten all the way across and Deep Purple in the outer corner. Smudge this out with Frappe.
