30 day make up challenge #4: bronze

30 day make up challenge #4: bronze

So much for calling this challenge the 30 day make up challenge if I posted the last look in this series over a month ago right? Oh well… I thought I’d kick back into the swing of things with this warm bronze look. After soft greens I now introduce you to shimmering smokey browns. I hope you like it.

Close ups

When I searched my stash looking for the right products to wear with a bronze look, I wrecked my brain trying to come up with the perfect look. And then I knew it: my Naked 1 palette! In combination with some more browns and a honey shimmer this is the look I made. I have to say I’m really pleased with how this turned out. It is a reminder that I should wear more warm colors on my eyes. It makes my eyes look darker and as such brings out one quirk about my look: the contrast of my (natural!) blonde hair and my dark eyes and brows.

Here’s what I used:

Base: L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau de Teint in no. 100 Porcelain, Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in no. 1 Fair, MAC pressed Prep & Prime transparent finishing powder

  • From inner corner to brow bone: Urban Decay Naked 1 palette – Sin

As promised a few days ago, when I posted an outfit of the day, that I would post a separate on a make up look. The outfit I posted went with a makeupless face. I just didn’t feel inspired that day to do any make up and usually on days off I will opt out of wearing make up anyway. However, a few days later I made the following make up look before heading out the door.

As usual this look is all about the eyes. I’ve used a fairly neutral blush and a nude lip. Close up time:

Products used:

TBS matte white eyeshadow as highlight under eyebrow

Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette:

– vanilla as highlight in inner corner

– deeper on first half of the eyelid

– chase on inner third of the eyelid & lower lash line

– flow in crease

– ace in outer V and outer part of the lower lashline

MAC fluid line in black track

Maybelline The Falsies Flared mascara
