I love the idea of tone on tone makeup. Which is exactly why I tried creating something a bit more tonal when I was going out a few weeks ago.
For my base, I used the L'oreal True Match in W7 around the perimeter, keeping it away from the centre... For the undereyes, chin, nose and forehead, I used a combination of NC42 mixed in with NC35 in the MAC Prolongwear Concealer. After setting these areas with the Ben Nye Banana Powder, I bronzed up the perimeter of my face with the NARS Bronzer in Casino. This helps add dimension and makes my roundish face seem even more oval and well defined. I went in and further contoured the cheekbones using the Inglot Eyeshadow in 357 Matte.
For the eyes, I started with Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Creme Brule and Cocoa Bear in the crease faded out to the brow bone. I repeated this processes till I was happy with the intensity. I then used the Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Cognac all over the lid and blended it out into the MUG shadows. In the outer third, I used Makeup Geek Corrupt to smoke out Cognac... Once i blended everything in again, I used the Maybelline Gel Liner to create the wing, followed by 3 coats of the L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara. Since the eyes were a bit too dark for my liking, I used MAC All That Glitters in the inner corners to brighten my eyes.
For the lips, I used the L'oreal Matte Moisture Lipstick in Maple Mocha.
Overall, I was rather pleased with this look.
