1) I would Begin by applying my Foundation, with a Foundation Brush. I’m using my LancΓ΄me – Teint Idole Ultra 24 HR Foundation in 01 Beige Albatre & applying it with my MAC – 187 Duo Fibre Brush!

*** If you like to conceal, I would conceal under the eye area at this point. I haven’t concealed on this tutorial!

2) Set your Face, using a powder! I’m using the MAC – Select Sheer Pressed Powder & applying it with my Bobbi BrownBuffing brush all over my face, and especially on my t-zone (as I have an oily complexion)!

3) Apply your Blush over the apples of your cheeks!

I’m using the RevlonHighlighting Palette and applying it onto the apples of my cheeks using the Bobbi Brown – Powder Brush & this will give you a natural flushed look!


(1) Filling in the Brows

I’m using the Billion Dollar Brow Powder in Raven & filling it in using my Bobbi Brown – Eyebrow Brush!


(2) Priming the eyes!

I have used the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and have applied it on the base of my eyelid & on my lower lash line using my Real Techniques Detailer Brush!


(3)Β Add your Base Colour

I’ve used Sable from the Bobbi Brown Warm Eye Palette using the Blending brush included in the palette.


(4) Adding your Metallic Long wear Cream Shadow

Before you apply the Bobbi Brown Cream shadow in Goldstone over your eyes, make sure you blend it with your Makeup Revolution liquid eye primer to make the cream shadow easier to apply onto your lids!

& then apply it onto your lids using your Cream shadow Brush! I’m using my Bobbi Brown – Brush for this!


(5) Take the excess Goldstone onto your brush (you used in the previous step) and apply the rest of the shadow onto your lower lash line!


(6) Dab some Gold Glitter on top of your (Nearly dried Goldstone shadow) all over the lid using your fingers!

I’m using the Gold glitter inside the Bobbi BrownWarm eye Palette for this! It is great to intensify the Gold look!!!


(7) Add a thin line of Gel Eyeliner.

I’ve applied my MAC – Gel Liner in Blacktrack with the MAC  – 209 Eyeliner Brush *** The Ultra thin edge of the Brush enables you to apply your Gel Liner in a line with ease!


(8) Add Mascara on your upper Lash line

I’ve used the MAC – In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara for this & coated it on my eyes generously!!!


(9) Add a bit of added Glitter on the Inner corner of your eye!

I’m using my Urban DecayHeavy Metal eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy & I’m applying it with the tip of the liner just onto the inner corner of my eyes!!!


(10) Β & Finally coat your Lower Lashes

I’ve used the MAC – In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara for this & coated it on my eyes generously.


& Then your eyes are COMPLETE!!!

& here is the finished eye Look!


Here are all the steps together!

I’ve finished the look with a Dark Red Lipstick, & for this you can never go wrong with your trusty Deep Red shades ready to grab the attention of that Man you’ve had your eyes on all night or even perfect to get your Man to focus all his attention on you!

I’ve used my lovely Charlotte Tilbury  – K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in So Marilyn to complete the look!

    1. Hehehe, you made me giggle a lil bit πŸ™‚ Thanks Lovely! If I can give you a Tip for your brows, just grow them out and let them get all bushy! then you can trim them and clean them out!!! Thanks sweetie πŸ’‹ πŸ™‚ xox

      1. I wish i had the patience for that! As soon as I see a stray I’m plucking at it straight away πŸ™ˆ x

      2. You need to restrain yourself, think of the gorgeous brows in the end πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ’‹ But I know the feeling I’m inpatient with a lot of things hehe xox

    1. Heheheh, you need to head to all the Bobbi Brown counters, if it’s anything like here in the UK then you won’t be able to find that particular shade online & mostly sold out everywhere I searched for weeks for it hehehe thank you beauty! Xox

      1. Omg – you’re lucky to own it!!! Thanks for the tip – I had no idea it was so popular! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi lovely, I agree with you & it also works as a dupe for the Bobbi Brown shimmer Bricks however, Honestly from trialling both the BB one and the Revlon one, both were the same! i’ll make a review on them :)! I haven’t tried the Physicians Formula Shimmer Bricks though! I must look into that for you πŸ™‚ But the Revlon one issssss great! I promise you, you will not be disappointed! x
