Spring hasn't really arrived all that much in Vancouver, let alone summer...but whenever the word Bohemian pops up, I think of summer...sunny bronze, glowy and tanned makeup. I bought a cute headband a few weeks back from H&M and it really inspired me to do a Boho makeup look, so here I am with the tutorial using the infamous Naked Palette! These choices in colours can be easily found in drugstores so if you don't have the Naked Palette (....although I don't know why you wouldn't by now hahaha) you can recreate the look with other brands of eyeshadow colours. I hope you guys like this easy tutorial :D
Step 1: Apply a primer of your choice as usual and then using your finger - blend out a bronzy cream eyeshadow base over top (Urban Decay eyeshadows are fairly pigmented and stick on well even without a cream base...so if you want, you can skip this step - but this is just a habit of mine + putting my cream shadows into use haha).
Step 2: pack on a shimmery gold eyeshadow (half baked) all over the lids
Step 3: Taking a bronze coloured eyeshadow (smog), apply it to the outer corner and blend it inwards and down towards the upper lash line.
Step 4: Blend out the edges and add some more definition to the eyes by blending a matte brown shade (buck) in the crease
Step 5: using a smudger brush, take a dark brown eyeshadow (dark horse) and smoke it along the lash line
Step 6: by this time, you may have lost some of the gold eyeshadow (half baked) colour - so feel free to go back in and re-apply some more and also apply it to the inner corner of the eyes for the summery bronze look.
Step 7: using the smudger brush again, dip it into the gold eyeshadow (half baked) and smudge it along your lower lash line
Step 9: line your upper lash line with an eyeliner of your choice, line your waterline with a pencil liner, curl your lashes, apply mascara and then apply some natural looking cross-hair false lashes to complete the look :)
