I did all of my normal makeup routine except for my eyeshadow before filming! Here is what I used:
- Young Living Savvy Minerals Hydrating Primer
- NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (applied with Real Techniques sponge)
- Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer
- Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder
- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
- MAC Blush- Margin
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz & Brow Gel
Before applying shadow, I brought my concealer onto my lids and set it using the Charlotte Tilbury Setting Powder. I decided to use some of my OG eyeshadows that were among my first investments in the makeup world: my MAC palette! These shadows are a little more pricey, but I still love the colors and the quality. Using a Morphe M452 Blending Fluff Brush, I put Soft Brown into the higher part of my crease as a transition shade. I blend this from outer to inner corner. Next, I use a Sigma E35 blending brush to apply Saddle (camel brown shade) into the lower crease, outer corner and outer portion of the eyelid. I go back and blend with the first brush to make sure there are no harsh lines.
For the lid color, I used the shade Amber Lights on a Sigma Firm Shader brush. I spray my brush with MAC Fix Plus after packing on the shadow to help give the shadow a bit more of a shine and also help with the staying power of the shadow. Then blend once again with the E35 to blend Saddle and Amber Lights together. You may also need to go back in and touch up the shimmer after blending.
Of course, go back in and blend once again in the crease. Then, use any light shade or powder to highlight the brow bones. Next, curl the lashes and apply mascara. I used the Arbonne It’s a Long Story Mascara. This mascara truly helps with growing your lashes and in comparison to similar products, is a fraction of the price. It makes your lashes look long, separated and voluminous.
For the bottom lash line, I apply the L’Oreal Voluminous Black liner in the water line, and used a Sigma Pencil brush with a bit of Saddle to help blend underneath the lash line. This helps to keep the liner in the waterline and to help from any mascara sticking under the eyes. Clean up anything under the eyes with a sponge or brush, and then apply mascara to the bottom lashes. I always go with waterproof (Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof).
On my lips, I applied the Bite Beauty Agave lip mask just to quickly hydrate my lips, but wiped off the excess so that the lipcolor doesn’t slide around. For the color, I used MAC Velvet Teddy (brownish nude) and topped it off with Young Living Savvy Minerals Lip Gloss in the shade Journey which is a shimmery bronze color!
So that completes this look! I hope you guys enjoyed some of my old MAC favorites and give this type of bronze eyeshadow look a try soon!
