FOTD: Nude Eyes, Bold Lips

Today felt like a bold lip sort of day... I've paired a nude eye look with a bright pop of color on my lips. If you're interested in hearing more about the products I used and how I created my neutral eye then keep reading!  

 Face Of The Day 

The Products:
You may have noticed that I didn't mention a blush. I always wear blush... except when I forget it, like I did today- oops! Good thing my lips are so lively; it doesn't really matter much :)

Eye Makeup Application:

  • Apply Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze over eye lid and blend out at the crease. 
  • Apply shimmery bronze "Eyelid" shade (from Left side) of Wet n' Wild Nude Awakening Palette to the lid. 
  • Apply taupe brown "Eyelid" shade (from Right side) of Wet n' Wild Nude Awakening Palette in the crease.
  • Apply the blue gray "Crease" shade (from Right side) of Wet n' Wild Nude Awakening Palette to the outer corner (outer "V") of the eye.
  • With a fluffy blending brush, blend out all the shades. 
  • Apply the cream "Browbone" shade (from Left side) of Wet n' Wild Nude Awakening Palette under the brow for highlighting.
  • Line upper lash line with Amethyst eye liner from Wet n' Wild.
  • Top liner with the blue gray "Crease" shade (mentioned previously).
  • Smudge a small amount of taupe brown "Eyelid" shade (mentioned previously) under the outer half of the lower lashes.
  • Line lower waterline with Nude liner from Rimmel for to brighten the eyes.
  • To complete the look, add a coat of voluminous mascara to lashes.
