Gold, copper smokey eye makeup

Here is a look that isn't too dramatic but also not boring :)
For the eyes:
First I used an eye shadow primer so the shadow will show up better and stay in place way longer. Next I used the light gold from the CG trio on the inner third of the eye on top and bottom, the medium copper blending with the gold and in the middle of the eye on top and bottom, and the darkest shade in that trio on the outer corner top and bottom and blended into the crease. If you would like to make it a little more dramatic or darker it is good to blend a bit of darker brown or black on the outer corner and crease as well. After the shadow I used a white eye liner on the inner corner and put a very light shadow over top to blend it and also blended that shadow under my brow and made sure that it blended with the darker shadow. Next i put black cream liner on top lid along lash line and put black shadow along the edge of it to make it look smokier and to help it set better. After that you just need to curl lashes and put mascara on and eyes are done.
For the face:
The face is quick and simple, the eyes are pretty easy but the face is even quicker! All I did was put on my face powder, bronzer, and blush.

Here is the makeup I used:
•Eyeshadow base- Wet n Wild-ESB02 pearl
•Trio set- CoverGirl eye enhancers-115 Gold sunset
•Dark brown- CoverGirl-Brown smolder
•Highlight- Wet n Wild-Sugar
•Cream liner- Maybelline eyestudio-blackest black
•Mascara- LancĂ´me-Hypnose + Revlon-Grow luscious waterproof blackest black
•Brows-1st- Rimmel brow pencil-02 Hazel, 2nd- Ardell brow powder-Mink brown. Then use brow brush to smooth out and look more natural. I find that using both helps it to stay in place much better.

Face makeup:
•The Body Shop- All in one pressed powder 05
•Rimmel- sun shimmer bronzing powder-medium shimmer
•The Body Shop- roseflower blush 02
•Lise Watier- Libertine blush
