Saturday, March 29, 2014

This look is something you could wearing during the day for a more dramatic look, or something you can wear on a night out! I love how bronze and copper looks together, and the copper makes my eyes look more brown!

So let's go ahead and BREAKDOWN how I achieved this look :)

First, I applied my foundation and primed my eyes with my NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer!

Once I had gotten that all over my eye area, I took my MAC Indian Wood Paint Pot and smooth that over my eyelid.

I took the bronze color below and place that right on top of the indian wood paint pot.

I took the yellow-y/gold color below and put that on the inner part of my eyelid and the inner part of my lower lashline.

I took the light, matte-brown color (lower left hand side) from this Tarte palette that came in the "Art of Giving" set. I blended that into my crease to soft the edges of the Indian wood and bronze color.

I, then, took this matte darker brown color (top right hand corner) and put it on my outer "v" area of my eyelid and ran it under the outer part of the lower lashline.

To help blend and soften everything, I took this matte, medium brown and blended into my crease on top of the light matte brown. It just makes the makeup look a little more blended and uniform :)

I use MAC's Blacktrack Fluid line (in the picture above with the Indianwood paint pot) and created a cat eye along my lashline. I then filled in the waterline with the eyeliner below. I believe it's from Covergirl, but the writing has smudged off of the packaging. haha.

I applied my Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara to finish the eye makeup!

 I contoured and bronzed my face with my Physician's Formula Glow Boosting Airbrushing Bronzing Veil (phew what a mouthful!).

And put MAC's blush in "blush baby" on my cheeks, slightly on top of the bronzer.

And on my lips, I wore Revlon's lipstick in the color "Demure" (*this is one of my favorite lipsticks of all time!)
