This palette has very mixed reviews. But for me I have quite enjoyed using it. The fact that the colours are right up my ally probably help the cause! So I thought I would do a #motd post for you on a look I regularly create using this palette.
To prime my eyelids I can’t sway away from my Mac Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly. It gives great coverage for any discolouration on my lids and is easily set with a little translucent powder before going in with any colours.
Now onto the Kylie Bronze Palette. To start off I used 1. Jasper all over the lid and to highlight the brow bone. I then used my Sigma E40 brush to sweep 2. Citrine through the crease and out into the outer corner. Making sure it is blended well. For the lid I used 3. Goldstone applied with my Sigma E25. I also used my Sigma E25 to apply 4. Hematite and 5. Bronzite into the outer v to give the look some depth.
I then used my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl pencil in Black on my upper water line to help create a thicker looking lash line.
For the lower lash line I swept through 2. Citrine and a fine line of 4. Hematite closer to the lash line with Mecca Cosmetica Fool Proof Liner brush. To help make my eyes look more awake and open I like to apply Mac Studio Chomagraphic Pencil Crayon – NC15/NW20 to my water line before finishing off with a coat of mascara.
Lastly is my lashes. When I want huge lashes with out applying any falsies, I use the Essence Lash Princess false lash effect mascara.
I have been really loving the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer during the warmer months. It helps keep my oil at bay. For this look I used a mixture of the Napoleon China Doll in Look 4 and the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless in 220. I am not a huge fan of the Napoleon China Doll formula as I feel it sits in my pores, but I do really like the tone of this. It is a little dark so mixing it with the Maybelline foundation helps give me a better colour and also a better consistency. To apply this I used the Simple Glam Girls Oval Brush which I really like using to apply my foundation.
To cover my dark circles I can always rely on my Mac Prolongwear Concealer in NW25 mixed with a little Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye cream to help keep my dry under eye happy. This is all set with the Mac Prep and Prime Transparent Finish Powder applied with a damp Real Techniques Sponge. I am starting to wonder though if there is a slight flash back from this powder. So I have purchased the NYX HD Finishing Powder to try and compare. I will let you know once I have a verdict on this.
To highlight my chin, nose, above my lip and centre of my forehead I used the Nars Radient Creamy Conealer in Custard. This is blended out with my damp sponge and also set with Mac Prep and Prime Transparent Finish Powder.
I finished off my base with a light dusting all over with my Mac Studio Fix Powder in NC30 with a large fluffy brush (Makeup Addictions Jumbo Powder) just to ensure it is set all over and any excess loose powder is blended away.
Using my Morphe brush (dupe for Mac 168) I contoured my face with the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and bronzed accross my cheeks, hairline, temples and forehead with the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer. I then went back and made sure the edges where blended and soft by buffing with the Makeup Addictions brush.
For my blush I used one of the colours from the Morphe 9N Blush Palette with my Mac 168 brush. This palette is awesome but has a lot of pigmentation so a little goes a long way.
To finish off the cheeks I used the Makeup Geek x Kathleen Lights Highlighter palette. I have to say this is my favourite highlighter and I have written a review on this one if you are interested to know more. You can find the post here.
The final step is my lipstick. I very rarely miss the lip liner step. I feel like it helps define my small lips. So for this look I went with the Estee Lauder Double Wear Liner in 08 Spice toped with my favourite Nyx Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Ruffle Trim.
