Burnished Bronze

Amidst some more colorful looks that I’ve recently been doing, I decided to go with a twist on the classic neutral eye.  Add some drama with bronze shadow and an eye opening black cat eye liner, and … voila:

Brushes you’ll need:

– MAC #’s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Vanilla, Orb, Malt, Tete-a-Tint, Sable, and Smut
– MAC Paintpot in Soft Ochre
– MAC Powder Blushes in Peaches and Strada
– MAC Lipgloss in Instant Gold
– MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

Supplemental: – A brow-filling productMascara


[* Cover the entire lid from below the brow to the lash line with Soft Ochre using your finger.
