A warm toned Smokey Eye


  

I just can’t stay away from neutral eyes. This time I used the Too Face Semi Sweet Chocolate Palette which finally landed in Ireland and I don’t think I have ever been more excited about getting this palette.

On my eyes I used Peanut Butter and Truffle in the outer third of my eye. I actually lined my eyes with Catrice Black Kohl pencil which is something I never normally do and Im not sure if I will do it again. I just can’t deal with the smudging! and for mascara no surprise that it is Benefits roller lash.

What to see more neutral smokey eyes, take a look at theses; one, two and and a surprise post from here.

Me and red lips is not something you will see very often. As much as I love them, I just feel really self conscious when I wear one and I just don’t think I can pull it off. But this year I have decided to be adventurous and not worry what people think.

When I wear a red lip I like to keep things simple for the rest of my makeup.

Here is a really easy one shadow smokey eye, that you are going to love and whats even better is that its from the drugstore!

The palette I have been using to create this eye look is Bourjois Smokey Eyes Palette in 04 Nude Ingenue I purchased mine from Boots. But you’ll find it at any Bourjois Counter in your area!

There is only one shade I use from this palette to create this eye look, its the gorgeous middle shade. It honestly make your eyes pop! It has a hint of shimmer that makes your eyes glisten and for me it is just the perfect brown eye shadow! Can you tell I love this shade! Sometimes for a bit of highlight I use the first colour and if Im honest I never use the last colour.

I honestly recommend getting this palette just so you can use that middle shade its amazing.

You can here me rave about the palette in an earlier blog post.

 

 

The Make Up Edit | Winter Bronze

Im not one to give up my bronze summer glow easily but in the winter it is alot harder to maintain. So this isn’t a full blown tanning post, this is more about how to bronze up your face naturally.

A drugstore bronzer that I love is Bourjois Paris Bronzing Powder also know as the chocolate bronzer. This is the best matte bronzer n the drug store in my opinion. It is not too orange so makes it great for a faux bronze.

Next let’s go to MAC Harmony this is more of a contour shade than a bronzer. I like to put this under my bronzer to define by cheeks.

My favourite and most expensive bronzer is the Chanel Bronze Universal. This doubles up as a counter and bronzer shade. This is the only cream product. I actually have ease in applying. This bronzer is also not too orange so it perfect for a natural bronze.

What bronzer’s do you use to fake your bronze?
