Another make-up look... Bronze-y eyes with red lips

So this post is for my friend G who I boogied down with this weekend. I tried out a new make-up look and G liked it and was curious about what eyeshadows I was wearing.

Well here you go, G! (This gave me an opportunity to play with my new-ish Photoshop elements software which I am still getting the hang of... the whole layers concept always throws me off.) These are all MAC eyeshadows.

And here's the pic without all the graffiti:

Open eye... I tried to add a little bit more of a dramatic "tail" to my eyeliner. And don't you just love my non-existent eyelashes?

Face shot!

By the way, I can't stress enough how much I love primers! I took the pics above *after* a night of sweating on the dance floor and only had to re-touch the lipstick. For the eyes, I used Urban Decay Primer Potion (although I just got my hands on Too Faced Shadow Insurance so I'll let you know if that's any better) and Smashbox Photo Finish Light primer on the face.


  1. Lookin good!!

    LMAO My eye lashes are the same way. In fact I'm really jealous of your brows! I've got some male pattern baldness going on with those babies. Seriously there are some bald spots in my brows HAHA. One of the downsides to being not so hairy, I guess.

  2. I have no eyelashes either. I love the bronze eyes, they look great on you.

  3. Love the look! I found this blog from your running blog, which I found from another running blog. Did you follow that? :)

    I use the Bobbi Brown gel liner too, but I can never get a fine line like yours. What is your secret?

  4. Love this look! with your nice smile
    Great pics with the nice explanation!!
    that makes me wanna try :)
