FOTD: FALL look using bronze colors from Purely Cosmetics


I thought id play with my new goodies that Robyn had sent me, I tried "Shimmering Bronze" mineral eyeshadow (also part of the 22-piece eyeshadow kit she has on her site, Purely Cosmetics) over the cream-to-powder eyeshadow in "Bronzed Brown" which reminds me of MAC Paint Pots in the sense that they have good staying powder and don't budge. They go on as a cream (and dream), and dry to a nice powder finish, so it's still easy to blend.

I love earthy brown colors, it's so simple and easy to do, not to mention how glowy it can make you look. I am definitely ready to get out of this heat-wave and get ready for fall!

I love "Shimmering Bronze" eyeshadow!

What I used:

- Monistat Primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer in NC35
- Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in "Olive Beige"

- MAC Sonic Chic Blush in "Warm Soul"
- MAC Blush in "Springsheen"

- Purely Cosmetics Cream to Powder Magic e/s in "Bronzed Brown" as base
- Purely Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow in "Shimmering Bronze" applied wet over base
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- Styli-Style Line & Seal Pencil in "Bronze" on lower lashline
- MUFE Fibers Lengthening Mascara Base (review coming soon)
- Too Faced Pinpoint Injection Mascara (review coming soon)

- Anastasia Eyebrow Tint Pen (review coming soon)

- MAC "Myth" lipstick
- MAC "Honeymoon" lipstick from Moonbathe Collection

I really like seeing you with brown eyeshadows for some odd reason. Gorgeous! :)

Just a quick note: the Cream to Powder shadows aren't available on the website just yet; Vanessa is testing them out for me. They'll be available in palettes in a couple of weeks. They'll be available in both in a 2 shadow compact and a 10 tin palette. Just waiting on the containers to arrive!

Your lip color looks beautiful! Which did you apply first, Honeymoon or Myth? I always get the dreaded concealer lips when I use Myth but I hate the texture of gloss so applying another lipstick on top may be the perfect solution.

So simple but stunning. Browns give you that lovely natural cuteness. Love it sis!

I love bright, 'pop' colors on you, but neutrals like you used in this FOTD look just as great on you too! Imma have to find some new bronze/dark
metallic browns for fall!
