Makeup Brushes

Here is one of the best eye brush set’s I have seen in a long time because it has ev-er-y-thing you need. I have linked it right here. Otherwise, below are the brushes you will need to do this makeup look.

  1. flat brush
  2. blender brush
  3. angled liner brush

Get The Look

When I do any dark and sultry makeup look, I do my eyes first and then clean up the aftermath with a face wipe. Then I do my foundation, blush, etc.

  1. Apply Rose Gold to the entire lower eyelid and blend up into the crease with a blender brush. Then apply bone right under the brow bone, blending out any harsh lines.
  2. Next, apply double espresso the lower eyelid and sweep it under the lower lashline as well. Layer dawn over that.
  3. Gently apply a black eyeliner to the upper and lower lashline, connecting them at the outside corners. Then use an angled eyeliner brush and sweep ebony over the top to blend. Last, use Pure Gold in the inner corners of the eye to highlight and brighten.
  4. Apply several layers of mascara.

Now that your Smoky Gold Holiday Eye Makeup is finished, you can do the rest of your look.

  1. Apply the Makeup Forever HD Ultra Foundation with a foundation brush.
  2. Sweep the Jane Iredale Bronzer Quad onto the apples of your cheeks. This bronzer quad gives a glow like none other. It’s one of my favorites.
  3. Make your lips pop with the Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Magenta Violet. This is one of my go-to lipsticks when I am in a sassy mood…I love it.
