How To: Bronze Smoky Eyes with Napoleon Perdis

How To: Bronze Smoky Eyes With Napoleon Perdis

Of course, you know we aren’t going to show you a gorgeous look like this one without telling you how you can recreate it from home! Thankfully, all you’ll need is a few of the ultra-high quality eye products from Australia’s fave cosmetics brand, Napoleon Perdis. Keep on reading to see how you can make like Jacinta Cimini MUA and look smokin’ with this bronzy eye look.


First thing’s first–prep and prime your eyes with an eyeshadow base to help colours stand out and product to stay in its place. We love the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Concealer Primer ($35) for a quick way to get this job done. Simply pop a little on the eyelids and blend out using fingers or a small concealer brush.


Take a warm-toned brown or terracotta colour, such as the Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Snob Mob ($29), and start buffing this all along the crease and outer V with a fluffy brush. Take another fluffy brush and lightly dip in the Colour Disc in Scarlet Woman. Add a little of this into the crease and blend upward into the front section of the brow.

3. LID

Dip your brush in the Colour Disc in Espresso to Go and pack all over the lid. Then, using slightly less product, drag shadow to the outer V area and blend well. Then, take the Colour Disc shade Chocolate Ganache and place all over the lid.

Pro tip: Wet your brush slightly to amplify the pigment.


Now it’s time to get sparkling! Take the Napoleon Perdis Loose Eye Dust in Copper Element ($35) and dip your brush into the pigment. Apply onto the centre of the lid. Then, lightly taking a small concealer brush or tapered shadow brush, apply the Colour Disc in Days of Disco to the inner corner for a little sparkle.


Smoke everything out a little with some jet black liner, like the Napoleon Perdis Eye Pencil in Onyx Factor ($30). Then, pick up a thin-tipped brush and smudge out as close to the lash line as possible. You could also use shade Gold Standard if you want to go all-out with this bronzy look.


Coat your lashes with the Napoleon Perdis Long Black Mascara in Double Black ($39) for that Hollywood glam factor. We also love the Madame Mascara in Beyond ($42.90) from Napoleon Perdis for thickening and lengthening your lashes for that gorgeous, fluttery look.


Give brows a little definition with the Napoleon Perdis Eyebrow Pencil ($32)–Jacinta uses the shade Pale Rider. Make sure to use upward strokes to mimic hairs and give them that ultra-natural look. Then, set your brows in place to ensure they look stunning all day long, with the Napoleon Perdis Wand-er Brow in Clear to Go ($28.80).


Jacinta hasn’t used any lashes for this look, but if you want to really top off your creation, pop on a pair and watch as they widen your eyes and draw focus to the sparkly shadows. Napoleon Perdis offers a huge range of gorgeous lashes, but we love the Napoleon Perdis Chrysanthemum Lashes ($22) for a look like this one.



Of course, no look is complete without a touch more glitter–right?! Use the Napoleon Perdis Tone It! Total Bae Face and Body Reflective Contour ($39) in Goldseeker as a highlighter on the cheeks and under the brow bone. Paired with radiant skin, this is a perfect, goddess-like combo.

There you have it–your step by step guide to this absolutely stunning bronzed look using all Napoleon Perdis!
