The look calls for radiant skin, so choose a luminous foundation and go easy on the face powder.
Step One: Amber Eye Shadow
2 / 7
Use a small flat brush to press an amber gold eye shadow into your lid. Apply it all over, and then carry the shadow down along your lower lash line. We’re using the copper shade from Kevyn Aucoin’s The Eyeshadow Duo ($42) in 204.
Step Two: Garnet Eye Shadow
3 / 7
Smoke out the eye shadow with a darker shade in the outer corners and along the lash line. We’re using Garnet from Lorac’s Pro Palette ($42).
Step Three: Eyeliner
4 / 7
Define your eyes by smudging brown eyeliner into your upper lash line, concentrating on the outer corners. To add a bit of drama, line your waterline with a rich brown eye pencil. To make sure it stays in place all night long, use a waterproof formula like this Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($20) in Whiskey.
The finishing touch? A statement lip. Choose a warm, deep red like oxblood to complement the golden look. Andersen recommends applying dark colors like this Avon Ultra Color Bold Lipstick ($8) in Bold Bordeaux with a lip brush for better control.

on type – if using charcoal, make sure you have a bed of hot coals,
