Glam Bronze Smokey Eye for Fall

Hey guys :)! this is the first look I am welcoming into the month of November. As I said in the previous blog post, I will be using LOTS of warm tones. Specifically in this look I was aiming for a dramatic “walk in the park” sort of look. It can easily be toned up or down with he change of a lip color, or the use of different lashes.

ALRIGHT. So, back to the changing of lip color! After applying Mac Paramount I decided to apply Marc Jacobs Lip Creme in JE T’AIME. This shade is a gorgeous muted strawberry color and like Mac Paramount pulled the look together.

Mystique in her Meowian language, says hello.

I wanted to form a look that seems like A LOT of work but in reality is thanks to lots of smudging and blending!

Before you do this look make sure to cleanse the face of any impurities! I happened to do a mask before so I skipped the cleansing part! I used Fresh Rose Mask and allowed it to soak in my skin for five minutes. After I saw the mask matted down, I washed it off with luke-warm water and proceeded to the next step. The next step being, moisturizing! I used my usual Fresh Seaberry Oil and allowed it to dry for a few minutes.

To ensure my skin has more moisture for a dewy effect, I went ahead and patted on my Hourglass N28 primer. This can VERY easily look oily make sure to use half a pump and apply to the forehead, nose outwards toward the ears, and chin. Allow to dry for a minute, during this minute you should apply a pump of the Too Faced Born This Way to the back of your hand.

I decided to use my Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush for nice and even coverage!

I began by stippling the product on my chin up towards the sides of my jaw. Then, I grabbed some more product and applied it from the sides of my nose outwards toward my ears. This creates a more natural affect. If more coverage is needed simply stipple (pat the brush up and down) in the foundation. Any excess product was used on my forehead and on my nose directly!

If you need extra coverage, like myself, I’d suggest using a powder foundation and creamy concealer!

In specific, Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able concealer and Bobbi Browns’ Skin Weightless.

I applied the concealer in numerous places such as under my eyes in downward triangles ( / / ) and over any blemishes! This has a SUPER creamy yet thick formula that also looks dewy so if you happen to have dry skin fear not, Marc saves the day! To blend the product in I used my fingers, using mostly patting motions. After doing so I took a
