A Day-to-Evening Summer Bronze FOTD

I love summer makeup. I'm a sucker for dewy makeup and sun-kissed skin. While this look may be too dewy for you, it's easy to tone down. I mixed quite a bit of Careblends Oil and a gold shimmery lotion in with my foundation for extra dewiness, but you can easily use less shimmer. I will say though, when my husband got home from work, the first think he said was how hot I looked and that he loved the makeup :)

At the end of the day, I applied a simple product all over my lids to take it from a day look instantly to an evening look. Read on for what I used...

Day Look:

Products used:
  • eyes
    • MAC shadows:
      • Woodwinked (lid)
      • Shimpagne MSF (brow highlight)
      • Ground Brown (crease)
      • Ricepaper (tear duct area)
      • Mulch (lash line & under eye)
    • MAC Studio Fix Lash
  • skin
    • MAC Moisturegleam (a goldish version of strobe cream..use under foundation & mixed w/ fdtn)
    • MAC Careblends Oil (mixed with foundation)

  • lips

Evening Look:

Product added:
Bobbi Brown Ivy Shimmer Ink Gel Liner ...that's it!

All I did was took my 217 brush, dabbed a little in the gel liner, and applied all over the lid. Then took a 224 brush to blend it out. I used 2 layers. I am in LOVE with my new Bobbi Brown liner :)
