Eyelook for formal dinner/event/prom (How-to)

Is there any of you that will having formal dinner or sorta-like prom coming up? I am.. hihi
So today, having lots of free time at home, i decided to create two natural glamorous eyelook that you can wear for your upcoming formal dinner/prom. If you don't have any, you can wear this look anywhere you want, festive day out, romantic dinner with love, anywhere :)

Look 1: Soft Brown Smokey 

 *As usual, I only show step-by-step for eye makeup. I have prepared my face and did my brows beforehead. 

1. For this look, you may need an eyeshadow base, preferably shimmery / frost finishes brown. I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in French Fries, a frost bronze color. Swipe it all over the lid. 

2. Using an eyeshadow brush and a shimmery bronze eyeshadow, apply it to all over the lid. I used shade chocolate from MUA Artiste Palette. 

3. For crease colour, I used a warm colour to make the eye look warmer. You can skip this if you want to. I used a bright matte tangerine colour from Coastal Scent 88 Original Palette and applied it to the crease using a crease brush. 

4. To enhance the outer corner of the eye, use a dark brown eyeshadow. I used the darkest brown colour from MUA Heaven and Earth Palette. Apply it creating V shape at the outer corner of the eye. 

5. Apply highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes and on the brow bone. I used the most pale colour from MUA heaven and Earth palette. It's shimmery so it's good to use for formal event as there will be lots of lighting there. 

6. For lower lash, used a dark brown pencil eyeliner and smudge it with a dab of dark brown eyeshadow. I used essence long lasting in Hot Chocolate. Smudge it using a smudge sponge applicator. Do the same method on the upper lash line. Use the dark brown eye pencil on the upper lash line close to the lash an smudge it. 

7. To finish this look use a black eyeliner. I suggest using gel eyeliner on tight line and water line as it will not smudge and it is seriously black. I mean it :3 

8. For more dramatic look, apply lashes. As usual, i used my Ardell Demi 120 lashes which I really love! i think the only lashes that I can wear easily is only from Ardell as the band is soft (I got rounded eyes so its quite hard to use hard band lashes) 

9. Applied mascara on both top and bottom lashes. 

Here the finish look. The shimmery eyeshadow will look prettier if its reflects with beautiful lightings so always go to shimmery eyeshadow if you are going to this kind of formal event :) 

Look 2: Gold Goddess 
Think that the smokey look doesn't suit you? Try this look, it's softer but glamourous at the same time. 

1. Use eyeshadow base. You can choose either gold colour or darker gold or bronze colour. 
2. Apply gold colour eyeshadow all over the lid. I used the one from Inglot. 

3. For crease colour, use a medium brown colour. I used shade Cookie from MUA Artiste Palette. 

4. I darken the crease colour using a matte dark brown. This one is from Inglot. 

5. For bottom lash, I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in French Fries and set it using the same gold eyeshadow i used on the lid. 

6. Highlight the brow bone and inner corner using shimmery creamy eyeshadow. 

6. To finish this look, I used a metallic off-white eyeliner on the waterline and gel eyeliner on the tight line. 

7. Apply false lashes and line the upper lash line using black gel eyeliner. 

And here the finish look! :) 

I really hope you like it and this tutorial help you for your upcoming event! This look used natural shades so it can suit any look you are going to wear whether its classy or simple.
