Lazy Girl :: Tutorial

Hello friends!
Some people see getting ready as a chore, but honestly I spend as much time as I can doing it. I think it's so fun to be able to play up certain features and mask others. You can go from looking like an innocent girl one day to a total diva the next. While I love getting ready, some days I don't feel like using a bunch of different brushes to apply different shadows. While this look still uses several brushes, I feel like I'm taking a short cut by not switching to a crease brush. I hope you guys enjoy and I'd love to see a picture if you re-create it!

 First I applied my Smashbox eyeshadow primer, then packed Sephora's eyeshadow in Exciting Safari all over the lid with my Sigma E55 brush.
 Instead of using a dark shadow and having to worry about blending it completely, I added Chopper from my Naked2 pallet, which is a very pinky gold, to my crease with the same brush. This adds a bit of dimension but in a very easy way.
 Using the same brush again, I added a small amount of Half Baked, an intense gold to the inner fourth of my eye to shape it even more.
 I chose YDK, a dark rose gold shadow and applied that to my lower lash line instead of eyeliner. For this I used my Sigma E30 brush.
 To highlight my brow bone I added Foxy, a matte cream color with my Sigma E40. This will also get rid of any harsh lines.
 Next I added a thin line of my Elf liquid liner and I winged it out, as always.
 You might remember I mentioned in a post during winter how I used to neglect filling in my brows. Not the case anymore. I feel like my makeup isn't complete until I do them. I simply use the powder from my Elf Brow Kit and fill in my brows with my Sigma E65 brush using short strokes.
 I have been using the Clinique High Definition Lashes mascara lately. The dual sided brush is what caught my eye in the department store. It has a normal side, but also a very firm, short side to really separate lashes. First I curled my lashes, then applied several coats.
 This photo doesn't do the eyes justice; it's more pigmented in person.
I finished the look by applying a Bouncy Blush in Pink Frosting, and my Buxom Lipgloss.
Sorry I don't have a better quality photo, but this is the finished look!!

Talk to you dolls soon
