Bronzed Eye Look with NARS Shadows

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Brazil

A new set of eyeshadows to play with, and Ta Da! A new look for Bionic Beauty! This look is a bronzed neutral eye. It’s laid-back, easy to create and works great for daytime or relaxed weekends. The colors work for summer (hinting at the summer sun) or fall (reminds me of the color changing leaves).

Before I get into the look itself, I’ll tell you a bit about my experience with the NARS eyeshadows (I used a Duo called Brazil… photograph to the right). The shadows are highly pigmented and press right into place without the under-eye fallout that’s common with some brands. I love how they blend easily and apply evenly (don’t you *hate* when shadows seem to clump up the color on your lids? Even if you try to blend them out? Ugh.)

They are a bit pricey, so you might look for dupes to recreate this look if your budget is limited.

To create this look, I applied the shimmer bronzey color across my entire lid and up into the crease. Then I took a big eyeshadow brush and blended the crease color up my eye until the color just faded into my skin (you don’t want any harsh lines when the shadow begins or ends). (BB’s note… if you look real close in the photo above, you can see the reflection of my pool. Tee hee!)

Then just apply the pinky color into the outside corner of your lid. Whip out that same blending brush and smudge the two color together so they blend and gradiate into each other. Apply some mascara, and you’re done!!

I LOVE, LOVE that look on you! It looks soft & feminine. Like the pool too, LOL.
