Get The Look

To create this look I first started out by priming and concealing the eye. Using a brown a tad darker than my skin I created a transition line.

I then took a skin tone powder and blended the two to create a flawless blend.

After which I added Bold Gold to the eyelid(all over). I then took my Maybelline Nude palette using the gold color and places this color all over the lid as well.

Now I grab my large pencil brush and pick up a matte black applying only to the outer corner of the eye. I then take my time and blend gold into black, black into gold several time creating a gradient effect.

Notice that I never blend then black into the crease, that was not the look I was going for. After blending the colors out I use my Wet n Wild Creme Eyeliner to completely line the eye.
I apply my kiss lashes using my revlon lash adhesive.

I then proceed to adding my foundation. During the application of my foundation I like to use my fingers. Lightly tapping the product into the skin gives a cleaner smoother finish.

After tapping it out I use my powder/foundation brush in a circular motion and continue to blend the product into the skin.

Following foundation I use my LA Girl HD Pro Concealer in Toffee to conceal under the eye, cupids bow, forhead, bridge of nose and chin. I also use my 15 color concealer palette to contour.

Taking a color a few shades darker than my own skin tone I add the contour under my cheeks on the temple area lower jaw bone and side of nose. This gives the face a chiseled professional finish.

I blend the product out with powder brush. Following this step I set the foundation with my Maybelline FIT ME pressed powder in Cappuccino. Now I use my Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara and
