Lately, I’ve been simplifying my makeup looks when It comes to eyeshadow. I’ve only been using two main products to form one of my favourite beachy looks which is a nice blend of gold lids! Not much of a true gold but more copper-bronzed and suited to my skin tone.
These two products are all I use. I have extremely oily eye lids and ever since last winter I’ve been using a thin layer of NYX’s Waterproof Eyebrow Gel to prime them and never looked back. A little product goes a long way and out of all primers I’ve used to keep my eyeshadow in place, this has worked like a charm!
I used one eyeshadow, “Tiger’s Eye” from Too Faced’s Cat Eyes Palette all over the lids. I started off by buffing this colour on with a flat-shader brush to get a good shape, I then patted a little more product towards the centre of my lids to add dimension.
Finished the look with a good coat of mascara to really let that bronze hue shine through and added the same eyeshadow underneath the crease of my eyes (slightly) to balance things out.
This look complements all eye colours and every skin tone, it just depends on which shade of gold suits you best.
I was really inspired by Serena Van Der Woodson’s (from Gossip Girl ^-^) bronzey lids that she used to always rock during her summer days! These eyes can go with just about any lip colour/outfit, effortless yet enhancing.
Let me know in the comments what you think.
I’m interested to know if you also have a quick summer makeup/skin routine and what that might conclude. Do you prefer on just enhancing a facial feature, focusing on the eyes, going lightweight on the skin or even creating a more flawless finish to your look? I’d love to know!
