Bronzed Eye featuring Hoola by Benefit

Here we go! Our first make-up tutorial for LovelyUs!  

For our first tutorial, I decided to share one of my favorite basic eye looks using Hoola by Benefit.  This is my favorite bronzer and love using it for more than just contouring.  I find that's one of the great things about make-up, most of it can be used for more than just its main intention - eyeshadow to fill in eyebrows, cheek powders for eyeshadows, stains for both lips and cheeks! 

Let's get started!

 1. Prime your eyes. I used one of my favorite eye primers Stay Dont Stray by Benefit

2. Cover the entire lid, up to the crease, with your favorite base color. I used Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in Barely Branded. This is definitely one of my favorite drug store items. It so pigmented and does stay on all day. 

3. From there you will want to use a brown eyeshadow on the outer corner of the lid and blend it up through the crease. I used Faint from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and a Sigma E40 Tapered Blending brush. 

4. With the same Sigma brush or any crease brush, take your favorite bronzer like Hoola by Benefit and blend out the edges of the brown shadow.  Picture number three shows the finished base of the eye with the shadows and bronzer.

5. Take a small shader or pencil brush and line your lower lashes with the same brown you used on your crease - going darker on the outer corner and lighter towards your inner eye. 

6. Using your favorite liner make a winged line any size you desire. I did my wing a little smaller than I normally wear to give a look that is more wearable for everybody.  For this look, I used my holy grail of liners, Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. This liner is absolutely amazing, stays all day and the color never fades. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a new liner. 

7. Lastly, curl those lashes and apply your favorite mascara to your top and lower lashes. 

So that is the finished look. An everyday eye using Hoola bronzer by Benefit. Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. :)
