FOTD: Bronze Satin Eyes

20 Apr

Hey everyone! Just another quick face of the day post today. Today I just did an easy bronze eye using satin shadows mainly in the Naked palette, and also one from Maybelline. Because I did a simple smokey eye, I paired it with a slight pink blush and a bright hot pink lip. Hope you like it!! πŸ™‚

Purple Smokey Eyes

Here is a look I created yesterday using the BH Cosmetics 88 cool shimmer palette. I will post the product listing and additional photos of the palette later tonight. Sorry the photos are kinda crappy… I took them on my phone and I was in the car *not driving!!* but the phone cam isn’t the most wonderful quality on the front facing camera…. anyways…. I’m at work being a slacker and felt like posting something. Lol so enjoy these pictures of my face…. I guess hah.

PRODUCTS USED

Face:

As always, I used a moisturizer and primer. That day I used Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer, which is a men’s face moisturizer that you can find at Sephora. It is SO GOOD. I bought some, then gave it to my man, and I’m kinda regretting it now…….. ANYWAYS, this day I didn’t use a face primer but if I had, I would have used my Palladio herbal face primer. It’s the bomb. Diggity.

Foundation: Revlon ColorStay Foundation in 180 Sand Beige for oily/combination skin.

Blush: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in “Natural Beauty”

Bronzer: (My fave for the CHEAPNESS) NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in “Sunny”

Concealer: I like using Benefit’s Stay, Don’t Stray for an under-eye brightener/concealer, which is what I used here, as a base for my favourite concealer, BareMinerals concealer in “Summer Bisque”. An alternative for Stay, Don’t Stray that I also really like is the NYX Concealer in a Jar which you can find at http://www.cherryculture.com (not being paid to tell you that. Just a serious fan of NYX products. I LOVE NYX!!)

Powder: Marcelle Translucent Face Powder.

Eyes:

This look was fairly simple to create because I used mainly one palette from BH Cosmetics to create it. Majority of the look was created using the BH Cosmetics 88 colour cool shimmer palette. The only exception to the rule was that I used a Matte black colour from the BH Cosmetics 88 colour neutral palette. Β Here are some pictures of the palettes so you can see the colours I used. (BTW I spell “colour with a “U” because I’m Canadian. It’s just something you’ll have to get used to on account of the fact that we Canadians like to add letters to words that don’t really need to be there. Case and point: Donut = American. Doughnut = Canadian. For real. Those letters really don’t need to be there, bro.)

Lips: For the photos, I was basically just wearing a basic lip balm I think…. and it had pretty much worn off by this point. But later in the day, I tried a simple bright pink lip gloss that looked pretty stellar. I used the Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in “Pin Up”. At first it looked pretty intense and kinda bright, but I liked it. Also, when it wears off, it leaves your lips a beautiful flush pink colour that kinda rocks in its own way.

This is the 88 Cool Shimmer Palette that I used to create this look. This palette retails for $20.95, however sales happen frequently. So its a really good idea to sign up for email alerts. For instance, at this time, most of the palettes are on sale for half price.

These are the colours I used to create the look.

The first (lightest colour) I used was the one at the far right of the image (outlined in red). I used this colour on the inner half of the eye and around the tear duct area.

The second colour (Mid tone colour) I used on the outer half of the eye and blended with the lightest colour. I also pulled it up slightly into the crease area.

The third colour (darkest colour) I worked through the outer corner and into the crease to create depth and blended with the other purples.

I used the matte black here in the 88 Neutral palette to create a bit more depth in the outer crease area.

 

 

The completed look after mascara and eyeliner. Please ignore how desperately my brows need to be tweezed lol. This was my boxing day shopping face. πŸ˜› hehe
