Get inspired by the colors of yesteryear; dabble in shades of ANTIQUITY of muted beige, gold, and brown.

With an eyeshadow brush, apply a light, muted beige all over the lid. In the middle third of the lid, lightly pat on a mustard yellow shade with a fluffy brush. On the outer third of the lid, blend a deep antique gold shade with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Using a tapered crease brush, lightly blend the antique gold color into the crease Define the crease with a small, tapered crease brush and tap a soft, reddish-brown shade to add depth. Highlight the brow bone with a soft neutral highlighter shade, and then line upper/lower lash line (as desired) with dark shade of chocolate brown. For complementing cheeks, try sunkissed cheeks by dusting a light touch of bronzer, flush of coral, dusting of gold, or bronzy-berry. Finish the look with lip colors in corals, reds, or raspberries for best results.

This was a look I wore last weekend, super, duper simple. I normally wouldn’t have even bothered with colored liner, but I really wanted to try out my Guerlain Lagun Bleu khol, since I haven’t had a chance to yet.

What’s your super duper simple look?

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Guerlain Lagun Bleu khol (teal-blue), Guerlain Bleu Cerise mascara (dark blue)
  • Cheeks: Margin blush (dirty coral), Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer (bronzy highlighter)
  • Lips: Sunsational lipstick (sheer gold-peach), Gold Rebel lipglass (sheer gold-peach)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Sunsational = Bronzer Shimmer + Tanarama; Gold Rebel = Love Nectar

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Lagun Bleu on lower lash line, and then apply Guerlain Bleu Cerise mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Margin blush using the 129, then highlight with Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer with the 188. Apply Sunsational lipstick to lips, and then top with Gold Rebel lipglass for color and shine.
