For this look I started with a tinted moisturizer, concealer and a light dusting of translucent powder. I used Bobbi Brow Tawny as a contour shade, Borjouis Rose essential highlight and MAC Blushbaby blush. I wanted the focus to be on the eyes, but in a soft, muted and subtle smokey way - I used Borjouis rose essential as a base shade - then mixed soba and coquette shadows by MAC and applied this to the lid into the crease. I used sable by MAC in the crease and outter corners. I used a charcoal liner - phone number by MAC and then smudged NARS bengali into the upper lash line before applying mascara. When I need my lipstick to last, i usually blot a powder of some sort on top, so today I used boldly bare liner with fanfare lipstick and blotted with melba blush - all by MAC!!!
