Lisa Fogarty | Feb 19, 2014 Beauty & Style

The Kardashian sisters have eyes to die for. They've been blessed with naturally doe-like peepers, but that doesn't mean the girls don't know their way around an eye shadow brush, liner, and false lashes. When it comes to makeup tricks, they have them in spades. And one of the looks they rock so well is one you're going to see a lot more of this spring and next fall -- gorgeous, bronze/gold smoky eyes that are fit for an exotic queen.

This is not a look that is for the faint of heart -- it requires an absolute dedication to eye makeup. But the pay-off is immense: in just a few quick steps, you will have a sophisticated and sexy look that is perfect for a night out.

Check out the slideshow for 10 tips for achieving Kim K.'s amazing look.

Here's the full video tutorial:

  • Stock Up on Supplies

    1

    Velour Lashes ($34.99 at velourlashes.com) are more expensive than drugstore faux lashes, but you'll get 25 uses out of them and they're as soft as mink. Since the bronze makeup trend is everywhere these days, you won't lack options when it comes to eye shadows. The girl in this tutorial (who looks a lot like Kim K., doesn't she?!) is using Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Palette ($15 at Amazon.com). You'll also need a concealer, black eyeliner, and mascara.

  • Use Concealer to Prime Your Eyes

    2

    Using your fingertip, cover your entire eyelid with concealer and blend, blend, blend.

  • Apply Light Color Over Eyelid

    3

    Apply a light bronzy color, like Sun from the Galaxy collection, over your entire eyelid. Make sure you're using an eyeshadow brush, and not your finger, for a more even application.

  • Apply Darker Bronze Color to the Crease of Your Eye

    4

    Using a bigger brush, apply a shimmery darker brown color (like Mars) over the crease of the eye.

  • Apply Shimmery Black Shadow to Outer Corners of Eyes

    5

    Using a small brush, apply a shimmery black color to the outer corner of the eye. You can use eye drops to make the color even darker and more smudge-able. Be sure to extend the darker color to the outer crease of your eye, as well.

  • Highlight Your Brow Bone & Blend

    6

    Grab a small brush and apply a light beige shadow beneath your brow bone. Blend the color so that it meets both the crease of your eye and your eyelid.

  • Eyeliner Time!

    7

    Line your upper lashes with a black gel eyeliner. Don't forget to line your inner eye corner, as well.

  • Instead of Liner, Use Shadow for Bottom Lashes

    8

    Use a small angled brush to apply a bit of black eyeshadow beneath the lower lash. Then add dark brown bronze shadow over the black to soften the line so it isn't so harsh. Blend well.

  • Bring on Major Lashes

    9

    Apply faux lashes to both upper and lower lashes, then coat them with two applications of mascara.

  • Line Your Bottom Inner Eyelid

    10

    Apply black liner to the bottom inner rim of your eye so that it doesn't look like there's a gap between your eye and lush lashes.

  • That's All, Folks!

    11

    And, voila! Add a light lip color and blush that won't compete with your extreme, dramatic eyes and you're ready to hit the town!
