Bronze Eyes & Bold Lip Make-up Look + OOTD

Hellooo there! So today I'm trying something different here on Its-Hollie and show you my makeup look and outfit suitable for a night out or even shopping with the girls if you like bold looks! To make this look more wearable for day time you could switch up the lips for a nude, or keep the bold lip and neutralise the eyes! It's entirely up to you! So lets get started...

Firstly, I had already moisturised so I primed my skin with Maybelline Baby Skin Primer to ensure a flawless base ready for foundation. I then concealed my under eyes with Garnier Roll On Concealer; spots and blemishes with Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light (see post here) and around my nose with Mac Select Moisture Cover (see post here) because this stupid cold has made my nose area dry!! I then finished my base off with Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW15 and set that all in place with a light dusting of Collection Setting Powder in translucent and sprayed MAC Fix+ to avoid any dryness.

To warm up my pale complexion slightly, I used Bourjois Bronzing powder in shade 52. Then to contour I used Mac eye shadow in Coquette (see post here)  and a bit of Benefit Hoola Bronzer. To add a bit of colour back into my cheeks I applied the Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud.


Now my base is perfected and concealer, I moved onto eyebrows because the foundation that may have covered my eyebrows helps the eyebrow powder stick down better. I used my trusty Mac eye shadow in Croquette (see post here) and deepened up the tail with Mac eye shadow in Charcoal Brown. Then to set them in place and stop them budging throughout the night, I used Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown

As always, I primed with Mac Paintpot in Painterly to conceal all the nasty veins and discolouration and to help all the eye shadow stay all night. I then applied Mac eye shadow in Coquette (see post here). on a fluffy blending brush, to my crease to add dimension and a transition shade. I then deepened the crease up further with Mac eye shadow in Charcoal Brown. After it was all blended nicely and there were no harsh edges, I applied Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, blended it out with my warm finger and then applied Mac eye shadow in Woodwinked and carried on blending adding extra Coquette if needed. I highlighted my inner corner with Calvin Klein Sheer Cream Eye shadow in Snakeskin Silver, to brighten up my eye. Next I would usually deepen up the crease and outer V with a black shadow, but I wanted this to suit everyone and some people may find that too heavy, especially with the purple lips, so I just left that part out but feel free to if you want to. Instead I lined my eyes with No7 Stay Perfect Felt Tip Eyeliner with a slight wing but then smudged it out with Mac Charcoal Brown and Natural Collection eye shadow in Midnight. Finally, using a smudger brush, I applied Charcoal Brown and the black shadow to my lower lash line, curled my lashes, then added Maybelline The Falsies Mascara.

Finally, and my favourite part of the look, I used Seventeen Supreme Shine Lipstick in Deep Secret.

This is my favourite look at the moment, I think the bronze eyes and purple lip really compliment each other, and really bring out my greeny eyes, but will suit anyone!

Next is the Outfit:
I chose to go plain with a black play suit, a black clutch with gold hardware, tights and black cutout ankle boots. I kept it simple with jewellery and just wore my usual cross necklace that I alwayss wear, my River Island Watch and my beloved Pandora and Thomas Sabo bracelet.
Final look.
