How are you doing? Today I leave you with a make-up look that will be great for night time or for an event during the day. With Summer comes the tendency to warm up the face and give it a more bronzed/tanned look, which was my inspiration for this look. I had an eyeshadow in mind that I wanted to try for this look and I quite like how it all turned out 🙂
Let’s start with the face…
This is everything I used on my face:
– Foundation: L’Oréal True Match
– Concealer: MAC Pro Longwear
– Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
– Bronzer: Benefit’s Hoola
– Blush: Bourjois 41 Healthy Mix (Bonne Mine)
Moving on to the eyes…
This is everything I used on my eyes:
– Sephora’s eyeshadow palette (click here to see the swatches)
– MAC eyeshadow in Wedge
– Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara
– Benefit’s Gimme Brow on my eyebrows, as well as a bit of eyeshadow
I started by applying MAC’s Wedge all over the crease to “contour” the eye and give it a bit more depth and definition. I followed that with the star of the look, eyeshadow #2 (it had so much fallout, it was crazy!) on the lid. After that, I grabbed an angled liner brush and dipped it on eyeshadow #3 and created a winged line on my lid, which I smudged as I went. Afterwards, still with the angled brush, I wiped the excess off on the back of my hand, dipped it on eyeshadow #2 and smoked out my lower lash line. It gave it a cool look, since there was still a bit of that dark brown left on the brush.
To finish the eye look, I applied eyeshadow #1 to the inner corners of the eye and went in with a brown eye pencil (the one that came with this palette) on my water line. Applied a generous coat of my new favourite mascara, filled my eyebrows a bit and set them in place with Gimme Brow. Et voilá, it was done!
… I wanted something neutral, as the eyes were already quite strong. So I decided to go with a lipstick that I hadn’t used in ages: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in “03 My Cool Nude”. It wasn’t quite right so I applied Urban Decay’s Naked Lipgloss in “Liar” over it and there it was, the perfect nude!
Here’s the finished look!
What do you guys think of this look? Would you wear it?
