Today I filmed a tutorial for this look, which is a neutral golden/bronze smokey eye, perfect for autumn because of the colours. This is one of my favourite go-to looks and even though golds and browns aren't supposed to make brown eyes like mine "pop", I don't care because I love the colours so much and I always wear them anyway! In my opinion, there are no rules to make-up and fashion, you wear what makes you feel good and that's it. Here's how I achieved this very simple look:
Base: I didn't use any eye-shadow primer, I only applied some Benefit Get Even powder using the sponge that comes with it, both to under my eyes and on top of my lids. This gives it a good base and sets the foundation/concealer so that it doesn't crease.
Eyeshadow: I used Kiko eyeshadow in #80 (a shimmery golden/champagne colour) all over the lid. Then with an angled brush, I applied MAC's Mulch (a reddish bronze colour) to my crease. I used the lightest shade (a shimmery vanilla) from my Sleek Storm palette and applied it to the brow bone and blended it into the other shadows for a more neutral daytime appropriate look.
Eyeliner: Using Maybelline's Line Definer in black on the top lids, I drew a thick line (yours doesn't need to be so thick, I just favour this look!) and then I used Impala's Waterproof pencil liner in black along the bottom and top waterline.
Mascara: I finished it all off with CoverGirl's LashBlast Volume in black.
You can watch the video tutorial of how I did this here.
I also dyed my hair today using my usual colour...yes, you guessed it: Garnier Nutrisse Creme in #10 Chamomile. It's the best colour for my hair, a perfect extra-light honey blonde! And it's super cheap too! You can buy it at the supermarket or drugstore. Let me know what you think. Do you have any at-home box hair dyes that work for you? Don't forget to let me know if you like this make-up look and if you think you'll try it yourself!
