Winter Bronze Plum Eye

        Hello there:)

         I always love the look of bronze and purple together, and I think it makes a gorgeous eye look for winter. So continue reading to see how I did this super easy look anyone can do.
What I used: In no particular order
Avon 8 in 1 in Neutral Tones
Avon Quad Eyeshadows in Purple Haze
E.L.F Cream Eyeliner in Black
Avon Glazewear Lip gloss in Sweet Maple (I know it may sound weird to use lipgloss on your eyelid and it does take a while to get use to but as long as its safe for around your eyes it is perfectly fine, this step is optional I just feel it make the bronze color more vibrant then a primer does.)
I didn't prime my eyelid when I did this but typically I would when doing any look, only reason I didn't was because I took this off right after I did it.


The one in the middle.

I used the purple and then the gray.

This is the gloss I used. I find this is my only use for this gloss.

Just swatches of the colors I used.

First apply primmer, then a very small amount on lipgloss if you chose to, you just want enough to cover the eyelid. Then pack the bronze shadow on top of the gloss, sorry for the not so great photo my camera wouldn't take a picture any better then this.

Next, take a crease or blending brush of your choice and apply the purple color to your crease and outer v until the color is as dark as you want it to be. After you do that blend the purple.

Then add a gray color to your outer v and drag it a bit into your crease, and of course blend.

After your done with the top lid drag the purple color onto the middle of your bottom lid.

Yet again sorry for the bad photo, but it still does the job, I couldn't really keep my eye fully open with the flash.

Lastly with the shadows, drag the gray on the outer part of the bottom lid and add the bronze to the inner part and lastly highlight your tear duct and browbone with a shimmery skin tone shade.

Yet again the flash makes it super hard for me to keep my eye open completely. Also I used a flat eyeliner brush(push liner brush) but you could use a pencil or a smudger brush to add the color on the bottom lid.

Almost done, just apply your eyeliner how you typically do.

And Finally apply your favorite mascara and eyeliner to you tightline and water line. I also added just a bit on the lower lash line.

Thanks for viewing, please leave any tips and your opinion, this is my first time doing this so I would love to know what anyone who sees this thinks. And of course you can swap the colors out and use different products then me. Also if you did like or have any other request please do share with me. Thanks!
