Burnished Bronze

Amidst some more colorful looks that I've recently been doing, I decided to go with a twist on the classic neutral eye.  Add some drama with bronze shadow and an eye opening black cat eye liner, and ... voila:

Brushes you'll need:

- MAC #'s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you'll need:

- MAC Eyeshadows in Vanilla, Orb, Malt, Tete-a-Tint, Sable, and Smut
- MAC Paintpot in Soft Ochre

- MAC Powder Blushes in Peaches and Strada
- MAC Lipgloss in Instant Gold

- A brow-filling product - Mascara
