My first "Face of the Week":
I chose this look because it’s the first time I’m wearing BROWN instead of black eyeliner! That’s huge for me.
Here’s what I used:
- Shiseido The Makeup Accentuating Cream Eyeliner in Brown I have to admit I was kind of afraid of gel/cream eyeliners, but this is so easy to use and it lasts all day long without budging.
- Bobbi Brown Burnt Sugar Palette I love that these neutral colors can look really natural or extra glam, depending on the intensity.
- Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Pressed Powder/Bronzer This is great to quickly even out skin tone. I use it when I want to skip the whole foundation-powder-bronzer step. This works for me because my skin is on the darker side.
- MAC Lipglass in Lightning A sparkly shade of silver-white (from the Blue Storm collection) that looks great if I don’t wear it too thick.
First I applied the powder/bronzer all over my face. For my eyes, I lined both upper and lower lids with the Shiseido cream eyeliner. I used a flat eyeliner brush which makes it super easy to apply. Then I used the lightest color in the Bobbi Brown palette (Gold Dust ) over my entire eyelid, the medium color (Toffee ) in the crease, and the darkest color (Burnt Sugar ) over the cream eyeliner. This helps to set the eyeliner and gives me a smokier look. Next, I curled my lashes and applied tons of black waterproof mascara, added some lip gloss, re-powdered my face with the bronzer—and there it is. All done!
