golden bronze smokey eye

If you want to know how to make your eyes look like this, then just carry on reading.

I like to moisturise first, and then go straight in with your foundation. I'm currently using the NO7 Stay Perfect Foundation which is really good, and I blend that in with the Real Techniques buffing brush. Next, concealer, and I use the collection 2000 lasting perfection (which is the concealer everyone raves about) and I blend that in with the Real Techniques contouring brush.

Then I go straight onto the eyes, I use the naked2 palette for the start of this but I've also included my MUA palette as it's a much cheaper alternative (it's only £4!) and I love it too! Firstly I make a base by smearing 'tease' from naked2 all over the eye, I then put 'half-baked' on top, all over the lid, the second shade in on the naked palette. I then go onto my MUA palette, and use the fourth colour in; 'fiery', for the outer corners of my eyes and then I blend that altogether using the naked2 brush. Pretty quick and simple, when I want more definition I use the darker brown colours on the outer corners too.

Alternatively: if you don't own naked2, use the MUA palette shade 'devotion' (second one in) all over the lid, then use 'fiery' again for definition on the outer corners. I also use the first and third shades as highlighters under the browbone! This palette is such a good alternative to naked2, the neutral colours are super easy to use, so definitely buy it if you haven't already!

Then go in with your eyeliner, the one I use is the Primark felt tip liner, but it's so good and easy to use, only £1.50 as well! Then mascara, 'they're real' by Benefit is my absolute favourite but just use whichever is yours. Then on to eyebrows - I don't do a lot to mine, I use this pencil from Rimmel to shape them and brush them into shape.

Lastly, blusher and contouring. I use this sleek palette (which is amazing) and my Real Techniques contour brush.

Voila! The finished look!
