Everyday Bronze Makeup Look Tutorial

Everyday Bronze Makeup Look Tutorial

We usually don't have established makeup routine, because we like experimenting with eyeshadows and since we get inspired by You Tube videos and numerous photos on Pinterest (by the way, if you want to follow us there click here) on a daily basis, we always try something new. But lately, we must admit that we have been loving this bronze makeup look and it's probably the look that we stick with the longest.

There are many reasons for that. First, it's easy and fast. Second, it's perfect for everyday, but you can easily transform it into makeup for a night out, by adding some dark red lipstick. And of course, we cannot forget that you can never go wrong with a bronze makeup in a summer time, that is almost here. 

So, let's start.

1. Step
As you may guessed, first step is adding eyeshadow base all over the eyelid. Personally, we don't skip this step, especially when it's hot. 'Cause you want your makeup to last as long as possible, right? But it's on you whether you're gonna use it or not, because not everyone has oily eyelids...

So, we used Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo, 40-Permanent Taupe.
As you can see, it's a bit darker color, but we like the combination of it with a bronze eyeshadow. For total bronze effect, we recommend using Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo, 25-Bad to the Bronze.

2. Step
Next, add some bronze eyeshadow all over the base and on the bottom lash line.

3. Step
Use some bronze matte eyeshadow. Put a little bit in the corner of a bottom lash line and follow the line until the upper eyelid.

4. Step
Now, use a fluffy makeup brush and blend the same eyeshadow in the crease.

5. Step
Last, but not least, add some brown eyeliner, or you can draw a line with brown eyeshadow using angled brush, as we did.

Of course, don't forget to put some mascara! Now it's completely up to you, whether you're gonna keep it natural or make it a little bit dramatic with the dark lips.
We hope you enjoyed and found useful our little tutorial.

Our Thoughts On Tattooing


There is no special reason why we chose this topic to be our first post, except that one of us got her first tattoo last week, so we thought why not write a little bit about it...

So, before we actually explain the meaning behind Marija's tattoo and reason why she decided to get it, we just want to make it clear that not everyone likes them and it's ok! There is loads of prejudice about tattooing, but it's your body and you can do whatever you want with it. Also, you shouldn't judge other people for getting theirs.

Today people get tattoos for many reasons. Whether it has some deep meaning for them or it's just a way to express themselves and their artistic side.
Personally, we agree with the quote "Life is too short, get a tattoo." Of course, we don't say that you shouldn't think about it wisely. You just have to make sure that you won't regret it later. That's why we don't recommend getting a tattoo before age of 18, 'cause it's probably gonna be something you won't be proud of later. Even though, if you've already done it, it can be cute and will remind you of some happy times from your childhood.

But let's get back to Marija and her tattoo. So she wanted a tattoo since elementary school. Obviously, it was not a good time, primarily because of her parents. But, since her wish did not change over the years, she decided it is a pretty good reason to finally do it.
As you can see on the photo, it is on Russian, since Marija is Russian. Translation of it is: "Never a failure, always a lesson." But if literally translated it means: "Every error - it is a lesson."
If being honest, there's no specific reason that made her chose those words. For now, we guess. So it's more like a life motto that she tries to live by. If you're wondering if it hurts, it does a little bit. The feeling is more like pricking rather than pain. But it's definately something that you can survive.

So, our advice is that you should get it if you really want to. Even though it is just some art that you think would look good on your body and especially if it's something that has strong meaning to you. You should, for sure, find a good and confidential artist. Also, for your first tattoo you should choose something minimalistic, just to test your pain limits.
Of course, we should not forget that today you have ways to easily remove it, but then again, why do it now, if you already think about removing it?
