Bronze Bombshell

Hello Dolls!!! As some of you may know, I am EXTREMELY addicted to makeup! Not so much to the point that I wear it everyday, but I do take it more seriously than the average female. As such I would like to start posting pictures of makeup that I have done on myself and others. Which is the purpose of this post today.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional makeup artist. The things that I will discuss in postings of this nature are things that I have learned from watching tutorials, from asking professional makeup artists, and from experimenting with makeup on myself.

Here is the look that I wore last Saturday to a Bachelorette party I attended.

List of products and how I used them. (Also includes hyperlinks to where these items can be purchased):

  1. Wet n Wild Vanity Pallet: I used the darkest matte brown shade on the lower left corner of the pallet. I placed this brown on the outer and inner corner of my lids, leaving a space in the middle for the pigment. Then I connected the two places where I placed the brown shadow by sweeping my brush in an arch shape, being careful to leave the space in the middle of my lid open for the pigment.
  2. NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil Dark Brown: I used this as a base so that my colors would pop on my lid.
  3. L'oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense: Liquid liner I used to line my top lash line
  4. NYX Ultra Pearl Mania: Pigment I placed in the center of my lids to give a 3D effect to my eyes.
  5. Cover Girl Bronzer (Ebony Bronze): I use this to contour my face, specifically under my cheek bones. If you are a women of color this is an AMAZING contour product because it's matte and provides a gorgeous glow to the skin. Sam Fine uses this on his celebrity clientele. 
  6. Mary Kay eye primer: I used this to prime my lids
  7. MAC Cross-Cultural: Eyebrow powder (I'm not sure if this eye shadow is still available or not. I tried to search the website for it and was not able to find it.)
  8. DUO eyelash adhesive (dark tone)
  9. MAC NC45 Select cover-up: to clean up brows by outlining them and for covering blemishes
  10. MAC #7 lashes
  11. MAC MSF Natural (dark): All over face powder
  12. MAC Pro Longwear concealer NW35: Under eye concealer 
  13. MAC Freckletone Lipstick
  14. NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss (Tanned) 

Hope you enjoyed!
