How to Get Bronze Smokey Eyes (Video!)

Bronze Smokey Eyes

Hi guys welcome back to Beauty By Shaq!

Today I’m bringing you this tutorial on how to get this beautiful Bronze Smokey Eyes. I love playing with color, but I also love doing soft looks for everyday wear.Learn how to get bronze smokey eye tutorial

I love a lot of cosmetic companies but I also have my favorites one of them being the new Wong Cosmetics. Wong Cosmetics is a family owned business with a great story behind it! All the proceeds go to fund their daughters dream of becoming a star (and we all know that doesn’t come cheap!). They are hands on, in the whole experience. They choose and order the products, they placed them online and they ship them themselves and give you a note with every package so you can feel special. I love that.

To get this Bronze Smokey Eyes,  for the eye shadow I used the Wong cosmetics 35K pallet. One of my favorites! All the Neutral shades and shimmer shades work great together.

For my eyebrows I used the NYX eyebrow gel in the color chocolate. I like to use strokes in the front and then define the back of the eyebrow to get the effect of a lighter brow in the front and a darker brow towards the back for a more natural look.

For the face I decided to showcase my new product. Shaq’s Silisponge (the clear one, we also have a pink pointy one) it’s great to use with foundation and concealer’s it helps to apply them flawlessly. The skin will be looking fresh, well covered and beautiful.

To complement this Bronze Smokey Eyes look,  I used LA Girls concealer and Estée Lauder double wear foundation, and to set it all I used my Airspun translucent powder.

I’m stuck on an eyeliner and I must tell you all about it. I am been using the Tarte Cosmetics tartiest clay eyeliner. it goes on smooth, it last a long time, is super dark, and I love it.

Also one of my faves.. OP Makeup Studio’s ninja eyeliner.

To make everything sparkle and the Bronze Smokey Eyes pop, I decided to use my new Wong Cosmetics highlight palette. To contour I used the OP Makeup Studios powder palette. This is must have in any makeup kit. For blush and to give shape to the face I used the Makeup Geek blush in Bliss.

For the lips I used a combo. I used lip liner and lip gloss from OP Makeup Studio. For the color I used OFRA Cosmetics and Kathleen Lights Miami Fever.

Last but definitely not least the beautiful lashes in runways from Wong Cosmetics.
There you have it beauty addicts! Those are all the products and all the techniques that I use to create this Bronze Smokey Eyes look. For a step-by-step on how to do it you can go and watch my video linked below:

As always thank you so much for your support beauty addicts!!  I’ll see you in the next blog!

Rainbow eye makeup using Crown Brush

I created this rainbow makeup look using my 35 color smoke it out too palette from Crownbrush.
To begin I moisturized and applied their two new amazing primes HD Effects Primer and Hd Effect Under Eye Primer (by the way.. I’m in love with this product) , then I corrected my imperfections with the crown brush concealers, next I primed my eyes with the Chubby Eye Pencil in the color Blizzard.

For the cheeks I contoured and Highlighted with their Blush Bronze Illuminate palette.
For the lips I went for an ombre look I using the  Chubby Lip Pencil in Moraccan Bazaar and Nude Beach.

The eyes need it to be framed so I used the new eyeliner from crown called  Ultra Skinny Eye Marker (super easy and fun to use)
Last but not least of course my beautiful crown brushes as pictured.
I fell in love with crown loooooooong time ago because of their brushes, now they are much more than that and I still love it very much!

Zombie Makeup

Everyone love zombie makeup now…. right?? I do!
There’s so many different way to make a zombie, and this is one more.. but I’ll give you insight in products and how to use them. At the end, I’d love to get your feedback!
To begin, I like to prep my model with contact lens, they always give any zombie look the perfect touch!

Next is all the “scars, bite marks, deteriorating” To create the angry eyebrows I used a foam latex prosthetic that I bought at The Silly Farm . I used Prosaid which is used to glue prosthetic to skin, then I went on to create the scars and deteriorating skin with 3rd degree… a 2 part silicone product that you mold and have ten minutes to play with.  On the neck, that’s where she was bitten to become a “zombie” I used oatmeal and latex, I mixed them together to create this look! On the legs I applied latex waited for it to dry and started making holes.

Then I took the most pale color from dinair and airbrushed her whole body…. to give it that dead look you know! LOL!

Next I took my Mehron Bruise wheel and added dead bruised coloring around every wound and cut! I also used black cream to give the illusion of depth.

Next I used my new favorite Mehron tooth fx and used the red and black to give a decaying FX to the teeth!

Isn’t she lovely?!?!?!?!

I like doing my blood splatter outside… and with good reasons.. “my boss hate when the whole school looks like a massacre happened lol” I use Mehron Stage Blood to drip in the areas that i wanted, then watered it down and used it for splatter everywhere else!
and Viola!
