How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 06I finished with my base first and then went on to do the eyes. First, I applied a BB cream (The Body Shop All in one) and spread it all over the face with my fingers. The BB cream works as a moisturizer, sunscreen, serum, primer and a light coverage tinted foundation. Hence I skipped applying a moisturizer and primer separately. Next with a sponge I applied a cream foundation (Bobbi Brown Warm Beige 3.5) and blended as I went along. Then with a pressed powder (Loreal Infallible creamy powder foundation), I set the cream foundation only on areas that I knew would tend to look a little oily (T-zone). I decided to keep the concealing for the end to see weather I needed it or not after the eyes were done. I contoured my face (Inglot Pressed powder) and applied a bronzish-pink blush (MAC Mineralize Sun & Moon) on my cheeks and finally applied a copper highlighter (MAC Improper Copper) on the cheek bones. So now to achieve this look below, read on —

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 01Step 1: As always, I applied an eye shadow base (Maybelline Color Tattoo Fierce & Tangy) all over the eyelid and also on the lower lash line.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 07Step 2: Then with my favorite dome shaped blending brush, I applied a matte brown shadow (MAC Cork-shade no.1) on the crease line which will help me in blending the other colors later on.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 08Step 3: Next, for the eyelid color I chose a beautiful bronzish-copper shade (MAC Woodwinked-shade no.2) and spread it all over until the crease area.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 09Step 4: Now to add a purple (MAC Fig 1-shade no.3), I picked some color with a pencil brush placed it right where the crease folds and then with the same blending brush I swept it in wind screen wiper motions.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 10Step 5: Moving on to the highlighter (MAC Ricepaper-shade no.4). I applied it just on the brow bone with a flat shadow brush.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 11Step 6: Now to add a hint of pink into this look, I blended a pinkish-gold color (MAC Expensive Pink-shade no.5) just where the bronze and purple met. Adding another color there makes the eye makeup look well blended.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 12Step 7: To help the look stand out even further, I applied a hint of gold shadow (MAC Amber Lights-shade no.6) just in the inner tear duct area with a pencil brush.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 13Step 8: Moving on to eye liner – I used a pencil (MAC Engraved) and smudged it with an angled brush creating a slight wing at the outer corner. A look like this will look great if you use a gel liner (mine had dried out 😦 ).

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 14Step 9: Then I applied kajal (MAC Engraved) in the water line as always and to intensify the lower lash line further, I smudged some purple shadow (shade no.3) below just until 3/4th of the eye. In the inner corner, I applied the same gold (shade no.6) and blended.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 15Step 10: The last part in the eye makeup – curling the lashes (Inglot) and adding mascara (Chanel).

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 16Step 11: Now since the eye makeup was over, I got on to apply a wee bit of concealer (Kryolan FS22) under the eyes with a blending brush. I prefer using a brush at times when applying concealer as it gives a seamless finish! Then to set the concealer, I dabbed on some powder.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 17Step 12: This step is optional. I felt that false lashes would look good for this kinda makeup and so wore them.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 18Step 13: For the lips, I chose a matte pink lipstick (MAC Kinda Sexy) as the eyes had so much shine going on.

How to apply makeup - Chic bronze and purple eye makeup 19I really liked how this look came together in the end. What do you think?
