This looks pairs a coppery-bronze eyeliner with a bright jewel blue eyeshadow for an unexpected contrast in colour.  Blending the blue out with aqua and teal eyeshadows helps to create a more seamless look. If you would like to see variations on this look, check out the Seafoam Bronze Glow and Amethyst Bronze Glow posts. Here’s how to re-create this look:

Highlight: MAC Brule eyeshadow (light matte beige) + MAC Naked Lunch (satin pinky-beige)

1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Apply Lucky eyeliner to your upper and lower lashlines.
3. Apply Freshwater on to the eyelid using a gentle patting motion (e.g. MAC 239).
4. Use Aquavert lightly in the crease of the eye to blend out the edges of Freshwater (e.g. MAC 217).
5. Apply Strike a Pose in the crease to add some extra definition to the eye.
6. Using a crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) or a pointed crease brush (e.g. MAC 226), sweep Brule, followed by Naked Lunch, on to the browbone to highlight.
7.Using an pencil brush (e.g .MAC 219) apply Freshwater to the lower lashline, just below the Lucky eyeliner.
8. Apply mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
