Makeup Look: Bronze Eye, Nude Lip

Makeup Look: Bronze Eye, Nude Lip

Hey everyone,

For this look, I emphasized bright, fresh skin (as usual), a dark, bronzey eye, and a nude lip. Enjoy :*


For my face I used my favorite (and safe!) drugstore foundation- Revlon Photo Ready liquid foundation in Nude 004. For both my foundation and concealer, I only used my fingers to apply.  I just dab, not slide, all around my face.

For under eye concealer I used my favorite (also safe 😉 ) Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard.  And for blemishes I used my holy grail product- Mac Studio Finish Concealer (I use NC35).

I lightly contoured my cheeks, hairline, and jaw line with Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep with my kabuki brush.  I love this bronzer, especially for when I’m tan since it is dark.  Deep is the darkest shade of all the Bobbi Brown bronzers.  It gives a matte finish, and I just love how it looks.


I skipped blush for this look. I wanted to have just a matte, bronzed face to complement the bronze shades of my eyes.



the lip looks a little pinky here in this light for some reason.

I used the Naked palette as well as my favorite Mac shade for my eyes.


First I applied “Naked” all over my lid and crease.

Next, I used my Sephora Collection #10 brush and brushed the color “Buck” back and forth over the crease.  This fluffy blending brush is a game changer- let me tell you.  It is literally the perfect size and softest to shade your eye lid crease evenly.  I always struggled to do this with other brushes, and now it is super simple. Highly recommended.

Next, I went in with “Dark Horse” and shaded the whole outer third of each eye lid from lash line to crease.

Next, I took my all. time. favorite. eyeshadow. ever. by Mac it’s called Woodwinked.  I found it totally by accident when I was about 15 years old and it turned out to be the best shimmery, bronze shade I have ever had.  I use it often for just everyday, all over the lid color.  So I applied it on the other 2/3 of my eyelid and a little into my tear duct as well.


I didn’t want to use a liquid liner because I wanted to keep everything smoky.  I just really messily applied a black liner on my upper lash line to about the outer 2/3 only. (I don’t ever put eye liner close to the inner corner of my eye. I really don’t like the way it looks.)  I used Clinique Cream Shaper eye liner in black diamond . I like this black liner because it really doesn’t smudge at all like some kohl liners do. Then I took a pencil brush and just smudged it all out.

Over where I applied the liner, I took “Hustle” with an angled brush and applied that right over.  It just parked up the lash line.

Then I took the same pencil brush and applied a mixture of “Smog” and “Dark Horse” to the outer 2/3 of my lower lash line.  This is a great way to smoke out the lower lash line and is easier and more attractive than dark eye liner there.

Lastly I applied Loreal Telescopic mascara to my upper lashes.  (My lower lashes are really long as well so I don’t like to put mascara on them).

I filled in just the start of my eyebrows a bit with my favorite Gerard Cosmetics Brow Bar To Go and an angled brush.


I did my favorite nude lip combo on my lips.  I use Mac Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Etcetera.  Awesome nude color.  When I’m lazy, I just put this all over my lips. Creamy, not drying, and last all day.

Then I filled in my lips with Gerard Cosmetics Lipstick in Nude.  It’s a great, creamy neutral tone and I tend to use it as a base for mixing with other colors.

Over that I used Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in No. 4 Pink Beige Nude.  This is my everyday, absolute favorite nude lipstick.  I wear it ALL the time.  It’s light, but still pigmented and super moisturizing.  Totally worth the little splurge to get it.


The greatest lipstick ever.





Let me know what you think!

Happy Saturday 🙂

Ciao loves,

Amanda xoxo
