LOTW- Golden Goddess
With spring and the warmer weather I was inspired. This week’s LOTW (Look Of The Week) – Golden Goddess. I thought that we would do something fun, natural and a will give you a subtle glow. There is nothing prettier then a fresh face.
- MAC Eyeshadow: Brule, Woodwinked, Shroom
- Urban Decay Naked 2 Pallet- HalfBaked
- Physicians Formula- Black eyeliner
- Maybelline Big Eyes- Mascara
- Studio Gear CC Cream
- BellaPierre Sunshine- Bronzer
- Maybelline The Buffs Sin-a-mon- Lippy
I know I know, it seems like a really long list of product used this week. And it is, I realize that. But I promise you that it is no more difficult than any other look. I did try to use a mix of high-end makeup and drugstore finds. One day, soon-ish, I will do a look all on drugstore finds. Maybe.
Cleanse and moisturizer your face. MakeUp always looks best on a clean face.
Apply Physicians Formula eyeliner, in black, to both upper and lower lash lines. Trick here is to only line the outer third of both top and bottom. This will give the illusion of wider, more innocent eyes. (I was really excited to try this product, and am looking forward to reviewing it for you.)
Apply MAC Brule all over the eyelid, lash line to brow. Everyone asks why I do this. I like having a uniform canvas to work on. It is just a great flesh tone matte color.
Apply MAC Shroom onto the inner third to half of both eyes. If you want the other colors to pop a bit more, you can apply this to the entire eyelid lash line to crease.
Apply MAC Woodwinked on the outer third of both eyes, again lash line to crease.
Apply Urban Decay Naked 2 Pallet in HalfBaked into the crease and slightly above it. By applying Woodwinked, which is slightly darker than HalfBaked, you will achieve the benefits of a smokey eye. Even though it is a very light golden look.
Apply Studio Gear’s CC Cream on face. I stipple it on with a foundation under my eyes, around my nose, in between my eye browns and on my chin. Then using circular motions rub it onto the rest of my face. And blend, blend, blend. I am LOVING this product and the more that I use it the more that I am in love with it. It is a go to staple in my bag now. If you want to see my full review, check it out here.
Apply BellaPierre Starshine Bronzer. You will apply it across your cheek bones, like blush, up along the hair-line to the temples. If you are comfortable with bronzer then gently sweep some across the top of your forehead again next to your hair-line, on the tip of your nose and under your chin.
Apply your lippy. I personally don’t like to use a liner, or lip primer. But my lips absorb the lipstick like no other. So if yours tends to bleed or migrate then you might want to a liner. If you do line your lips first, then fill in your lips with the liner before you apply your lipstick. This will give your lipstick something to hold onto, and make it last longer. I used Sin-A-Mon from Maybelline’s The Buffs line. I did a review on it a few weeks back, and my love of this line has only grown. I am now the proud owner of all the lipsticks in this line. (Truffle Tease is still my favorite, but with this being such a light look, it needed a bit stronger lip color.)
Last but certainly not least, curl your eye lashes and apply your mascara. I love Maybelline’s Big Eyes. It is a cheap drug store find that works better than any expensive brand that I have purchased. Please see here as to how to apply mascara.
See no more difficult than any other look. Just mixing and matching more products. Hopefully, it was easy enough to follow along. During the spring and summer months, do you wear a lighter makeup look? Or are you the same makeup year round? Do you use a bronzer at all or is strictly blush? Let me know your thoughts.
