Bronzed & Metallic

A couple of weeks ago, I did a beauty post showcasing the metallic eye trend that I loved so much from fashion week.  Today is part 2 as I am re-creating one of my favorite makeup looks that I did for NYFW this past season.  It features a few other great and affordable products from Walgreens Beauty.  You might remember the red lace romper that I wore to an event and dinner.  This is the makeup look that I created that night. Let’s get to it!

Before applying any of my makeup, I tried out Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum.   You must know by now that I am all about trying out new skin care products.  I always prep my face first before putting on any makeup.  This velvety serum protects your skin from future signs of aging as well as helping it to appear clearer and more radiant.

After putting on my foundation and concealer, I applied Botanics Radiance Highlighter in Fair.  I always use a highlight on top of my concealer and this has helped me out so much with the dark circles underneath my eyes.  I also apply it to the middle of my forehead and cupid’s bow when I do a little contouring.  I was pleasantly surprised by this one and really love how it helped to brighten up my face.  Plus, it’s only $10.99. You can’t beat that!

I then used Boots No7 Perfectly Bronzed Mosaic Bronzer.  This is my first time ever using a mosaic bronzer so I admit that I was a bit skeptical at first because I did not know what to expect. It’s a mix of several different colors, including two pink shades, so it allows you to basically customize it the way that you want.  I ended up really liking the way it came out!  Just be careful not to use too much of it at once.  The right amount will leave you with a bronzy glow.  I ended up mixing a few of the browns with the light pink so that I didn’t need to apply any blush on top of it. 

For my eyes, I went metallic again with the same CIRCA eye crayon as the last post.  Only this time, I didn’t mix it with anything else.  I then applied CIRCA Vivid Vinyl Eye Liner in Blue Topaz.  I pretty much never do any other liner than black, so it was fun to mix it up!  The blue is not TOO blue either so I think it mixed really well with the color on my eyes especially since it’s also a metallic shade.  I didn’t want to overdo it, so I just did a thin line.  

  I then finished off the look with a red lip, which also matched my lace romper. Oh, and it matches my lips-print shirt too, of course. 

Have you tried any of these products from Walgreens before?  Which one did you like the best?  I've really enjoyed using all of these plus the Colour Prevails shimmer.  Thanks so much for checking out this post and I hope you enjoyed it. :)
