|For some reason this look photographed a teeny bit lighter than it was in person, but not by much.|
What I used:
- Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer (patted over lid and below eye)
- Make Up For Ever #152 shadow (patted over lid; blended into inner corner and below eye; swept just below arch of brow)
- Fresh shadow in Mission Fig (blended heavily into crease, then softly blended up towards brow)
- Make Up For Ever #126 (blended into edge of Mission Fig towards and pulled up towards brow)
- Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes liner 0L (tightlined upper waterline and tightlined outer portion of lower waterline)
- Sugarpill Bulletproof pressed shadow (lined upper lashline and winged out the outer corner)
- Boots Botanics Exceptional Definition mascara (I'm really digging this mascara lately! I wish it came in waterproof as well, that would be amazing)
- Faux lashes in Bianca (fixed to eye using Duo lash glue)
Complementary Product Suggestions
Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Strawberry
I previously reviewed this in one of my Drugstore Friday posts (see original review HERE). I wanted to use something kind of bright with a hint of sparkle, so I pulled out this lip gloss. With a soft look like this, I wanted a pop of color a bit on the sophisticated side, but not super overpowering. I think that if you wanted to do a deeper or brighter red lip it would look fine as well! I purchased this lip gloss a while back, but I'm fairly sure this color is still available. These glosses retail for around $7.49 each, but every time I've gone into the drugstore lately Revlon has been on sale so you may be able to get it for less! When I originally purchased mine I got 2 for BOGO 50% off.
Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer
This is one of my favorite bronzers when I want to use something with some shimmer. I like that it has the 2 colors, though I usually swirl the 2 together. I think for someone with a fairer complexion the 2 colors could be great as you'd be able to pick and choose how deep you wanted your bronzer and you could adjust it as the spring/summer went on. I wanted to give myself a little bit of a glow to complement this eye look--let's face it, it's February in the Northeast so I'm as light as I get--so I grabbed for this and dusted it gently on. I have used the darker color for contouring in the past, but I find that it's a tad more shimmery than I like my contour color to be. If you don't mind a bit of shimmer in your contour then this is definitely a great option. I've been dying to try Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder because it looks like it's exactly what I like for contouring--matte and just the right shade of brown. If I get my hands on it I'll do a comparison post between that one and this one. Sun Bunny is available on Too Faced's site and retails for $29. I'm not sure why mine has a black compact and the one on the site is a bronze color, but perhaps it's because I got it in a Too Faced set? Either way, it's the same as the one on the site minus the packaging.
