Reader Request FOTD & Tutorial- Smokey Orange and Brown


Reader Kristal requested a smokey orange and brown look, so I did my best to fulfill that request.

I also took this opportunity to use the L'Oreal HIP Pigment in "Progressive", (on my outer-V and crease) as well as MAC e/s in "Patina" and "Omega"

What I used:

- Camellia Rose Skin Soothing Primer
- Silk Naturals Mineral Foundation (Warm Gold)

- Everyday Minerals Blush in "All Smiles"
- Milani "Luminous" Blush for shimmer

Eyes:- MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" all over the lid
- Pure Luxe Eyeshadow in "Fantasy" (all over the lid)
- NYX single eyeshadow in "Golden Orange" (lower half of the lid above the crease)
- Amuse eyeshadow from the palette (no color name on top of NYX golden orange)
- L'Oreal HIP Pigment in "Progressive" (on outer-V and contour)
- MAC e/s in "Patina" and "Omega" above NYX golden orange (contour)
- Indelible Gel Eyeliner in "Black Out"
- Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara

- AVON Lipstick in "Coral Cashmere"
- AVON Lipstick in "Nude Pink"
- Sephora Lip Liner #206
- AVON Lipgloss in "Nude Peach"

After applying the MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" all over the lid, I applied Pure Luxe e/s in "Fantasy".

I then applied the orange/bronze color over the NYX Golden Orange.

Line and apply mascara!

Applied NYX Golden Orange and HIP Pigment in "Progressive" on lower lashline...

Your pull the orange off really well! I like it, looks really good!

It sucks how we don't have Milani over here, the products like good :( is it similar to Bourjois?

Your face looks thinner! Not like you were chubby before or anything!

Hi Vanessa!

You look so cute, as always! I wanted to thank you for updating the blog so often. I'm so addicted to it that I check it 2-3 times a day and there's always something new to learn from.

Thank you!
