Brazen Blue

21 Mar

This is a look that I have been trying to perfect for a while and have at last achieved. The combination of gold and blue. The secret ingredient? — Club eyeshadow! Who woulda thunk? The effect is a subtle wash of gilded bronze accented by a deep something blue. Très sophistiqué.



Brushes you’ll need: – MAC #’s 217 (blending brush), 214 (short shader brush), 252 (large shader brush), 266 (small angle brush), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Woodwinked, Club, Smut, and Plumage
– Chanel Ombre Unique Shadowlights in 07 Declic
– MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
– MAC Powderblush in Blunt

– MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack

Supplemental: – A brow-filling productMascara

Eyes…

Lips…
