Lavender and Bronze Makeup Tutorial

Lavender is one of the prettiest eyeshadow colors. In this tutorial I’m combining it with bronze and brown to not overdo the purple. This is a fun daytime look.

My inspiration came from an eyeshadow duo I bought at Kohl’s a couple years back. My boyfriend still makes fun of me to this day because I spent thirty minutes deliberating whether I was going to get it or not. $15.50 just seemed like a lot to spend for two eyeshadow colors.  Obviosly, I did end up buying it, and while I don’t regret it, honestly, you can substitute any semi matte lavender eyeshadow and a shimmery bronze eyeshadow to get the same results.  Well anyway, let’s get on with the tutorial.

First you’re going to moisturize, prime, apply foundation and concealer.  Once you’ve done all that, decide what you’re going to use as a base.  I decided to try e.l.f. studio cream eyeshadow in candlelight, because it has some shimmer, and the lavender I’m using is fairly matte.  I used a concealer brush and applied from lash to brow.

Now get your eyeshadow out.  I believe the duo I bought was limited edition and has since been discontinued, but here’s what it looks like.

Okay, so use your favorite eyeshadow brush and pat the lavender from your lashline, up to your crease.

Now, using a pencil brush, define your crease using the bronze shadow. Blend well.

Highlight your brow.  I chose to use e.l.f. studio eyeshadow in buttercream.

You’re almost done. Define your brows and give yourself a hint of bronzer on your cheeks if needed.

Smudge brown eyeliner on your top and bottom lids, concentrating color on the outer half.  Set your liner with brown eyeshadow.  Also apply a brown or black mascara.

And you’re done!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for reading!
