Makeup Monday: Rich Brown Shadow For Any Color Eyes

#MakeupMonday: rich brown eyes from BeeyoutifulSkin.com

Now that Autumn is nearly upon us, my makeup choices are taking on a richer, warmer tone. And what is richer and warmer than brown? It makes me think of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, and the smell of the earth after the rain.

We carry a wide assortment of brown shades, from cinnamon to milk chocolate, to deep, rich coffee, and in matte and shimmery finishes. Brown shadows complement all eye colors! So choose your favorite deep shade for this look; it doesn’t matter which one, but you’ll probably want to pick a fairly deep shadow as your main color.

This eye look is super simple; you really only need three (four if you want to get fancy) basic colors, but it turns out as rich as a steaming cup of dark coffee. Let’s get brewing… err… started! #MakeupMonday: rich brown eyes from BeeyoutifulSkin.com

You will need:

Using the All-Over Brush, apply Matte Cream on your brow bone, just under your brows and down to your crease. Wipe off the brush on a clean towel and then moisten it with a little bit of water. You don’t want it too wet; just enough to dampen it.

Tap some brown out into the lid, and dip your damp brush  into your brown. Make sure to coat your brush evenly with the color! Now, stamp your brush on your whole lid, from the crease to the lash line. You can layer the color on for a deeper look if you like. Give it a minute to dry (keep your eye closed!).

Now, grab your Pointed Sculptor brush and dip it on your mid-range brown. Swirl it in your crease, blending the edge of the deep brown into a soft, smoky blur.

Don’t forget your lower lid! Using the Smudger Brush, extend your deep brown under your eye along your lower lash line, being sure to blend very well. Once you’ve got it all blended nicely, line your eyes with Matte Black Liner and add a coat of your favorite mascara.

This look goes best with a warm-toned blush (I’m wearing Warm Rose) and a fairly neutral lip color.all brown eye shadows from BeeyoutifulSkin.com

Makeup Monday: Bronze Beauty

#MakeupMonday: Bronze Beauty from BeeyoutifulSkin.com

I don’t know about you, but I love a warm, bronzey glow to my skin in the summertime. But I don’t always have the time or desire to sit in the sun to get said summery glow.

Enter bronzer! With bronzer, without even leaving your house you can transform pale skin into warm, sun-kissed skin that looks like you spent the weekend at the beach!

Top it off with golden-bronze eyes and you have a full-face look that is both gorgeous and laid-back… which is pretty much the definition of “summer” in my book.

#MakeupMonday: Bronze Beauty from BeeyoutifulSkin.comYou will need:

First, let’s start with the face. Always cleanse and moisturize before starting your makeup routine; it will create a smooth, clean “blank canvas” upon which your makeup will really shine. Apply your foundation to your clean, dry skin as you usually would.

Now for the fun! Grab your bronzer and swirl your foundation brush in it, being sure to tap off any extra. Start at your forehead and sweep the color underneath your hairline and around to your temples. Then hit the bridge of your nose and your chin. Swirl some color underneath your cheekbones and jawline to create some contouring as well.

Now hit the apples of your cheeks with Warm Rose blush, and the tops of your cheekbones with a dab of Champagne Pearl to highlight them and add some glowy shine.

For the eyes, highlight your brow bone and inner eye corners with Champagne Pearl using the Large All-Over Brush, then take Twinkle Wood on the Small All-Over Brush on your lids from the crease to the lash line. Deepen your crease with Harvest Oak using the Angled Sculptor Brush.

Now, using the Smudger Brush, mirror that same pattern underneath your lower lash line. First use Twinkle Wood to about 3/4 of the way in to your inner corner, then Harvest Oak from your outer corner to about 1/3 of the way to the center. For an extra pop of shimmer, add a dab of Pure Gold right in the center of your lids (where your pupil would be if your eyes were open) and on the inner corners, using the Small All-Over Brush. Use the Eye Liner Brush to finish it all off with a soft line of Deep Brown and a coat of mascara.

Mist your whole face with Laveshmint Hydrating Toner to settle the minerals on your skin, and to give a dewy finish. And bonus: it’s cooling and fresh! I like to carry the bottle around with me for a spritz of cool moisture during the hot summer days.

Use our Kiss Of Coral Lip Shimmer to keep your lip tone warm and natural with this sunny look!

Water… sparkly turquoise, deep navy, alluring azure, even shades of blue-gray and greens. These are all cool, summery colors that evoke a feeling of calm and tranquility.

But when it comes to makeup? I don’t know about you, but when I think of blue eyeshadow, I usually think Mimi or chalky 1960’s. Not exactly the most flattering or chic looks out there, no doubt.

But bright blue eyeshadow can actually be done in a very modern, fresh, and non-cartoonish way. The key is to pair it with sophisticated neutrals, allowing the blue to be a “pop” of color set against a background of mellow grays or browns.

I love the way blues play off of browns, so I’m going to base today’s look on bronze and turquoise… like driftwood on a Caribbean sea.#MakeupMonday, Inspired by Nature: Ocean Eyes

You’ll need:

Start off with freshly cleansed and moisturized skin; your makeup will go on smoother and last longer!

We’re going to start off by building our “backdrop” for the lovely blue… grab your Champagne Pearl shadow and the small all-over brush, and stamp that color up underneath your brows. Take Silver Snow Base and dab it into your inner corners, and extend it just a little on your lower lash line, brightening up your inner corners and creating contrast for the colors to come.

Next, using the same brush (wipe it off on a clean towel between colors!), grab up some Chestnut Brown, and stamp it across your lids, from crease to lash line. Deepen your crease with Twinkle Wood eyeshadow applied with the Angled Crease Brush.

Using the small all-over brush, dip just the end (not the flat part- stand it on end) into the Twinkle Wood and follow your lower lash line to about 1/4 of the way in to your inner corner, creating a soft bronzey glow under your eye.

Now that you have your lovely backdrop, let’s add the fun! Grab your (clean!) Small All-Over Brush and dip the tip of it into your Maui Blue and start dabbing it on the outer corner of your crease, working inward. Blend well, adding more blue as you go.  Continue the blue around the corner and under your lower lash line as well, meeting up where you left off with Silver Snow Base.

Set it all off with a line of Deep Brown, either dry and smoky, or wet and dramatic. Pair with a light, clear blush and natural lips. Don’t forget to contour and highlight for a beachy glow!

Now go hit the Maui waves! Or at least grab a cold drink and pretend you can hear the seagulls…
