Gold and Bronze Eyes...Picture-heavy!

I'm home alone on a Friday I decided to do another photo tutorial while bumpin' to Jordin Sparks and Pastor Troy, LOL.

*~*Gold and Bronze*~*

Pics of products and brushes I used:

Romp e/s (Bottom Row, 2nd from Right)

Carbon e/s (Top Row, 2nd from Right)

Milani e/s in Golden Bronze and Classic Beige

CoverGirl LipSlicks in Demure and M.A.C LipGlass in Mad Cap

Various brushes from M.A.C and some random drugstore brand

- M.A.C Lightful Moisture Cream
- M.A.C StudioFix in NC30
- Bonne Bell Blend 'n Glow in Natural Blush

- M.A.C Paint Pot in Painterly
- M.A.C e/s in Romp
- M.A.C e/s in Carbon
- Milani e/s in Golden Bronze
- Milani e/s in Classic Beige
- Revlon ColorStay Liquid liner in Black
- No-name brand pencil liner in black
- Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara in Black

- Milani Blush in Bronze Beauties

- CoverGirl Lipslicks in Demure
- M.A.C LipGlass in Mad Cap

Step One:
Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over lid

Step Two:
Apply Romp e/s from lash line, and extend past crease. Then extend slightly above contour.

Step Three:
Apply Golden Bronze e/s from middle of lid to outer corner. Only extend slightly past still want the lighter brown color (Romp) to show above crease.
Step Four:
With Carbon e/s OUTLINE two-thirds of crease, as well as the lower outer V.

Step Five:
Repeat Step Three and Four to make colors pop!
So far it should look like this...

Step Six:
Blend contour with a tapered blending brush. Also blend that line on the side.
After blending...

Step Seven:
Highlight under brow with Classic Beige e/s. Classic Beige is a great imitation of M.A.C's e/s in Ricepaper, but more shimmery :)
Step Eight:
Line eyes with black liquid liner. Line waterline with pencil liner.

Step Nine:
Apply Lightful Moisture Cream to face and apply foundation of choice.

Step Ten:
Apply bronze blush along cheekbones. Then apply lighter gold color to apples in sweeping motions toward ears.
Step Eleven:
With the white shimmer powder, highlight forehead, bridge of nose and the 'C' section (area under eyes, temples and above brows).

Step Twelve:
Apply Demure Lipslick and top off with Mad Cap LipGlass. Demure is a pinkish mauve...a great base for a true beige color like Mad Cap, so you don't end up looking like the undead!

Step Thirteen:
Fill in brows with brow pencil.

I applied mascara last. I think the eyes turned out pretty good considering I wasn't wearing my contacts..I am so blind!
