FOTD & Tutorial: Bronze & Teal


Reader Ashley requested a tutorial using teal and bronze, at first I was thinking about making it more of an orange-y brown, but I love the goldish brown hue of Aromaleigh's "Alloy" instead since it matched the sash on my shirt, LOL. It was actually pretty impromptu.

What I used:

- Monistat Chafing Gel as face primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- Silk Naturals Foundation in Buttery Gold

- Jordana Blush in "Stardust" (yeah old school!)
- MAC MSF in "Gold Spill"

- MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" all over the lid
- MAC "Provence" pigment applied wet all over the lid
- Aromaleigh's "Alloy" on lower half of the lid applied dry
- MAC "Teal" pigment on outer-V and contour
- Ben Nye "Jade" on lowerlashline
- MAC e/s in "Ricepaper" as highlight
- MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish"
- Spinlash mascara

- MAC l/s in "Fleshpot" (the best nude lipstick ever!)
- MAC "Underage" Lipglass

I didn't curl my lashes so you can see more detail...

that looks good and your outfit matches with your eyes. hehe. my mom has a spa and she has tanning beds, but i live 30 min away from her. i haven't tanned this year. i hate tanning with lotion, cause i feel sticky after i tan. i tried that mystic tan crap and they say it won't stain your clothes, but it stained my turquoise bebe tube top! i'm so mad. i did that months ago and will never do that spray tan again!!!!!! i'm just gonna lay out by the pool or something! lol.

oh, vanessa...i was gonna ask you, i also wear the mac studio finish concealer in nc30 and want to try out silk naturals. since we wear the same color concealer, would you recommend that i try butter gold as well? also, what color do you wear in everyday minerals?

Hey Nessa

Devi said...

You look GORGEOUS, Nes!

I've been silent reader for long time until now.. :D

I've tried the same way like you did to apply my L'oreal HiP flamboyant on my eyes and I was completely shocked with the results.. Is it probably because I rarely do some experiments on eye colors?
