I’m just going to put this out there–bronze colors are just fabulous. They look fabulous on everyone, they look fabulous in every season, they look fabulous paired with most colors and they are pretty fool-proof in application. I kept today’s look really warm by pairing a bronzey gold shadow with a very warm brown and then applied some black in the crease to add some depth. If you are in a hurry or want to keep it on the light side, skip the black and just keep it to bronze and brown…. I paired this eye look with this year’s Pantone color of the year: Tangerine Tango on my lips!!! Hope you enjoy!

Using a big fluffy brush, pick up some “Woodwinked” and apply it to the entire lid and into the crease. It will look something like this:
Using a big fluffy brush, pick up some “Brown Script” and apply it to the outer “V” and the crease. Because you are using a fluffy brush, it will cover a wider area and should blend nicely with little effort as you apply it. It will look something like this:
Using a bullet brush, pick up some “Carbon” and apply it to the crease and the outer “V”. It doesn’t have to look perfect-we will blend it later. It should look something like this:
Using a big fluffy, blend your colors together in a back and forth motion. Using a stiff brush, apply your highlight from the brow bone to the inner corner. Wipe off your big fluffy and blend your highlight out. Apply your false lashes, and go over any excess glue with gel liner. Apply a coat of mascara to blend your real lashes into your fake lashes. Apply gel liner just to your waterline. Use the leftover “Carbon” on your brush and apply it to the outer half of your lower lash line. Pick up some “Brown Script” on your bullet brush and apply it over the carbon….keep it to the outer half of the eye. Wipe off your bullet brush, pick up some “Woodwinked” and apply that to the inner corner of your lower lash line to where the “Carbon”/”Brown Script” combo begins. Your final product should look something like this:
I lined my lips with a coral pencil and applied NYX lipstick in “Haute Melon”. If you are weary of purchasing expensive amounts of “Tangerine Tango” to satisfy this year’s trend-then this is the lipstick for you because you can be in style for around 4 buckaroos-who doesn’t like that? I am not a huge fan of oranges on my skintone….BUT I have been avoiding “the color of the year” for so long now (wearing it only on my nails) that I decided if I was going to pair it with any look-this one would be it…so here it is! Not so bad huh?
