If you follow me on Instagram you must have seen the photo I put up a few days ago featuring a golden/bronze makeup look. Practically every other comment urged me to do a tutorial for this look, so guess what this week’s video’s going to be?!

Before the video goes up, I’m going to share a list of the products I used to achieve this look:

For my eyes, I started out using the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I used Half Baked, Smog, and Darkhorse— pretty simple! I followed with my Laura Mercier Creme Eyeliner in Noir to line my upper and lower lash lines, and for my lashes, I must share my newest discovery: House of Lashes!! This was my first time trying a pair of their lashes and I’m hooked! I used the Noir Fairy style; these must be the best lashes I’ve ever tried. It’s a very full style with varied lengths across… My new favorite!

On to the face: For this look, it was important to add a lot of slightly shimmery bronze to my cheeks and a touch of gold highlight. I used the Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips in Waikiki Strip to add the perfect glowing bronze to my face, and added just a bit of the NARS blush in Orgasm to my cheeks for a bit of color. Orgasm is a great coral shade with gold undertones that really complements this look. I finished off with a gold highlighter, also from NARS, from the Foreplay palette.

Finally, for my lips I applied the Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Juicy Peach. For a touch of gold, I took my La Femme loose pigment in #6 (it’s a peachy gold pigment) and applied with my finger just to the center of my lips. This added just enough gold to complement the look without stealing any thunder from the eyes!!

Look for the video tomorrow on my YouTube channel!
