Remember yesterday's makeup look?

Well if you remember and you would like to recreate it. Then I have good news for you!
Here's how I did it...

Before I begin here's a chart outlining the main parts of your eye area:

source: Temptalia

First apply eye primer on your lids.
I used e.l.f eyelid primer. 
In order to cover your eyelid area better I recommend using your "ring finger" to apply the eye primer.

Next apply your main eye shadow color to the center of your eyelids. 

In this case that would be the bronze eyeshadow. If you're still not very proficient with eyeshadow brushes then using your ring finger again is fine. I like it better anyways because you have better control of your finger right? Just make sure to clean up your finger first.
*111 choco-latte - CLINIQUE (palette)

Now apply a dark complementary shadow to your outer lids.

For this application I definitely recommend using an eyeshadow brush because you're tracing a "v" shape but sideways (">") on your outer lid with the eyeshadow. I used a dark brown eyeshadow for my outer lid but any "dark" shadow that looks good on your skin is fine. For example: black, dark gray...etc
Try to wing it out as you apply it because that will give your eyes the cat-eye or winged out look.

After apply your lighter complementary color to your brows.

This will highlight your brows, enhance your eyelid color and make your eyes look more alive. Any light and shimmery color will do. I used a shimmery white eyeshadow by CLINIQUE.

Then apply a light golden complimentary eyeshadow to your inner lid and lower lash line.
This will make your eyes look bigger and bring more attention to them.

To finish off curl your lashes and apply your favorite mascara.

Finally use your favorite liquid or gel eyeliner to make a winged eyeliner .<---learn b="b" how-to="how-to">HERE

*Additionally you can also apply a powder bronzer for a sharper look.

And you're done! Here are some closeups of the final product.
Products Used:
Eyelid Primer - e.l.f
Bronze Eyeshadow - Dollar Store Palette
Dark Brown, White & Gold Eyeshadow - 111 choco-latte (CLINIQUE)
Liquid Eyeliner - Glam Eyes Rimmel
Mascara - the Falsies Maybelline
Powder Bronzer - 03 Sunblushed (CLINIQUE)

I hope this tutorial helped you. Let me know if you liked it below in the comments section.

Would you like to see more of these in the future?

p.s: I did not apply foundation for this look. I simply powdered my face with the bronzer. As for my lips I used two lip balms: baby lips/drenched & e.o.s/strawberry

    mint sweater&blouse | FOREVER 21 (similar here)
studded shorts | DIY  
watch | CASIO
Hi lovelies! I'm back and hopefully for a longer period of time. If you're wondering where I've been, you've guessed it, college! Yes, these last weeks of the semester were tough! From assignments to tests, all due within close periods of time, my time has been mostly devoted to school. But this is officially the last week of classes and as of next week is finals week. Which means you will be seeing another outfit post very soon. I also still have to do my Fall Lookbook video and a few reviews, so stay tuned for that.

For this look I brought back my favorite color from this summer (mint). Who says that bright colors should only be worn during the warmer months? Certainly not me! I mean Autumn is already gloomy enough so occasionally bringing in a little of sunshine of your own is refreshing. I picked up this sweater at Forever 21 during one of their end of summer sales. It was such a steal (about $10)! Which reminds me did any of you take advantage of the Black Friday or Cyber [Week] sales? Unfortunately I didn't because I'm trying to save a bit for the upcoming Holidays.

Well I've got to get back to work on school assignments.

See you guys very soon.

fur vest | FOREVER 21  top | WALMART  skinny jeans | PACSUN  headband |GLINT&GLEAM

Long time no see fashionistas! How have you all been? I'm hoping that all of you are enjoying Veteran's Day weekend. I'm out of town for the moment, hence, why the change in scenery in these shots.

For this look I brought my fur sweater back to welcome the chilly weather. I've been into beanies lately and really wanted to pair it with my spiked headband to add a rad touch to my look.

These shots turned out lovely! I gotta give all the credit to the bf; his skills have improved. He even started directing me on how to pose and stuff hahahaha love him.
