Bronze Overload

This is me trying to 'smize' a la Tyra

Something happens when I put bronze on my eyes. I always feel the need to incorporate bronze into everything else that goes on my face resulting in a kind of monochrome looks. I suppose there are worse things. I mean, you can’t really do a monochrome look with green….unless, I guess, you’re Kermit. But seriously, with my (most of the time) green eyes, I think that bronze really makes them pop. Here’s the look:

You all know that I’ve raved about the Color Tattoos. I just love them to pieces. This eye look features two of my fave pink tones together: Pomegranate Punk and Inked in Pink. I love a good Pink Eye….of the non-contagious variety, of course!

I concentrated the dark Pomegranate Punk on my lid and then blended the lighter Inked in Pink up into the crease for a sort of ombre’ effect. To blend into the browbone, I used Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Iced Latte. The Infallible Shadows are another product that I love to bits. They are like a pressed pigment almost. The color payoff is amazing and my only problem is that I need more of them! šŸ™‚ A good winged liquid liner added some pizazz. On the bottom lash line I used the Pomegranate Punk on the outer edge of the lid and faded it into the Inked in Pink. I lined my waterline in black and put a dab of the Iced Latte in the inner corners to brighten.

I loves me a good cream shadow. I like to use them as a base for powder shadows or just a sweep of color on its own for a really easy look. I’ve never had any luck with any drugstore cream shadows. They never seemed to have the staying power and anti-crease formula as my faves from MAC and Benefit….until I discovered the Maybelline Color Tattoos. These things are the business! They have a great selection of mattes, shimmers, metallics, nudes, colors: EVERYTHING Girl! The staying power on these is hella good and I have never had a problem with creasing. They are marketed as a ’24 hour’ wear product and I might even believe it. Here are some swatches of some of the ones I have.

Left to Right: Inked in Pink, Tough as Taupe, Too Cool, Bad to the Bronze

Maybelline just recently put out their Limited Edition Spring shades and I seriously want all of them. They are pastel, irridecent/duo-chrome and downright precious.
