I’m going out to a nice dinner tonight and so I wanted to share my makeup look with you! I opted for a (surprise, surprise) bronze-gold smokey eye paired with a sheer glossy lip.
Here’s how I achieved the look:
First I curled my lashes, applied Urban Decay’s Primer Potion to my lids, and filled in my brows a bit using Anastasia’s Brow Wiz. This brow pencil is seriously amazing – the point is so fine, making it easy to achieve a naturally-full eyebrow look.
I then moved onto my eyes, and chose L’Oreal’s Infallible eyeshadow in Amber Rush, a shimmering gold-copper shade. The Infallible eyeshadows are so finely milled and apply so nicely on the lids. They also are extremely long lasting and never crease! Next I took my Victoria’s Secret Dark Chocolate eyeliner and applied a thicker line on my upper lash line, then blended it out with the little smudger on the other side of the pencil. I alsoo applied a thinner line to the outer half of my lower lash line and water line. To brighten up the inner corners of my eyes I used Rimmel’s Scandaleyes pencil in Bulletproof Beige (I have a serious love for these pencils). To finish off the eyes, I applied a few coats of my beloved Maybelline The Rocket mascara.
On my face I used Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk foundation, and blended it in with a Real Techniques Expert Face brush (note: if you do not own this brush, go out and get it!). I concealed underneath my eyes with my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer, and then set my base with Rimmel’s Stay Matte powder in 004 Sandstorm. To bronze up a bit I applied Jouer’s Mattifying Bronzer in Sunswept to my cheeks, nose and temples, and then added a pop of color to my cheeks with Le Metier de Beaute’s lip and cheek tint in Poppy.
I wanted to keep my lips natural and glossy, so I went with what is quickly becoming my new favorite gloss – Buxom’s Big and Healthy Lip Cream in Mudslide. This is such a perfect natural gloss, and one of the only glosses I own that I feel actually makes my lips appear fuller. I love the tingling sensation it imparts, as well as its vanilla-mint scent.
What makeup are you wearing out tonight?
