Inspired Look: Temptalia's Bronzes, Pinks, and Golds

I decided to play around with a look that I saw on one of my favorite beauty blogs, Temptalia.com: Bronzes, Pinks, and Golds.



She used a lot of colors from the MAC Brunette, Blonde, and Redhead collection that just came out last week. I didn't have any of them so I used her suggestions for substitutions (also called "dupes").

Here's what I used (all MAC unless specified otherwise):

  • Eyes: Motif eyeshadow, Expensive Pink eyeshadow, Urban Decay Mildew eyeshadow, Smut eyeshadow, Shroom eyeshadow, Clinique deep brown creme liner, Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (brown), Maybelline Define-a-Lash mascara (black)
  • Brushes: 1/4" Loew's Cornell Maxine's Mop (narrow flat eye shader brush), 239 (flat eye shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 227 (large fluff brush), 208 (angled eye liner brush)
Directions: On the inner lid, apply Motif eyeshadow using a 1/4" Loew's Cornell Maxine's Mop brush (from Michael's). Apply Expensive Pink eyeshadow to the middle of the lid using the 239. Darken the outer lid using Mildew eyeshadow and drag into crease using the 217. Darken the outer V further with Smut using the 217 in small circles. Sweep Shroom underneath the brow bone to highlight with the 227. Apply deep brown creme liner using 208 along upper lashline. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon Liner on lower lash line and Maybelline Define-a-lash mascara on lashes.



So... not quite as pretty as the look she did, but I kind of like it for an every day neutral look!
