I did kind of a bronze smokey eye with the pop of blue on my lower lashline because I've been soooo boring with my makeup lately, I wanted something a smidge more dramatic (at least compared to what I've been doing haha). And I decided I would do a tutorial on this look so here we go!
-First I applied my eye primer (Too Faced Shadow Insurance) and then I applied a thin layer of my MAC fluidline in "Rich Ground" to get a nice, bronzey base (clearly it does not need to be perfect haha)
-I then applied a warm orange/gold color on my lid (Inglot 307 P)
-I went in with a brown (Urban Decay's "Twice Baked") in the outer v area but I applied it with a fluffy brush so the dark color isn't too harsh
-I applied a skintone color under my brow down to the brown to help blend
-I applied just a little more brown and blended up a bit
-I filled in my brows (since I don't like to apply my highlight color without my brows being filled in) and applied MAC "Vanilla" pigment as my highlight
-I added a bit of Urban Decay's "Baked" eyeshadow which is a beautiful copper color above the brown and blended that up into the highlight area
-Add liner to the top lashline and to the waterline. I used Bobbi Brown gel liner in "Black Ink"
-I don't want the liner to be too severe so I applied some of my dark brown shadow on top of the liner and I added a bit more to my outer v as well.
-And now for the blue on my lower lashline. The brush on this particular liner is very flimsy so I applied a blob of color to my hand and dipped an angled liner brush into it and applied it with that
-The liner went on a little too dark for me so I applied a light layer of a similar eyeshadow color (for me that was Inglot AMC 70) and made the line a little softer
-Now add mascara. I used L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black
And ta da! You have a beautiful bronze smokey eye with a pop of royal blue! Dramatic enough for me but not anything crazy.
I used the ELF blush/bronzer duo and NYX's "Peach" blush on my cheeks with MAC "Vanilla" pigment as my cheek highlight. And I have MAC "Myth" lipstick under NYX Megashine Lipgloss in "Nude Pink" on my lips.
Here's some more pictures of the blue liner I used
|The color is "Extreme Blue"|
|The brush compared to the Wet 'n Wild liquid liner brush. The brushes are very similar: small and flimsy.|
|However, you can get a nice thin line with this.|
I did almost this same look only with a black/grey smokey eye with this liner on the bottom and I really liked it. I did wear it alone on my top lashline one day too and my husband really liked it on me. I said to him, "It's weird. I've been doing a lot more natural looks lately" and he said, "I like it better." Well it stinks to be him because I'm definitely not sticking just with natural looks haha because I like my dramatic/bright looks too much to give them up! Not that he wants me to but he prefers a more natural look.
I hope you all like this (even though I've done similar looks before)! I want to thank you all again so much for all of your support! I really appreciate you taking time out of your day to read this and to comment. I'm so lucky that I have such a nice group of followers! Thank you all sooo much!
