Simple Tan & Brown

I wore a tan and black dress Friday night to help my girlfriend celebrate her 30th birthday, so I decided to do a simple tan and brown look on my eyes. I used my EP24 Unforgettable palette by L.A. Colors to create this look:

Step 1: I applied a heavy line to my upper and lower lash line using my black eyeliner pencil by N.Y.C.

Step 2: I traced over the pencil on the upper lash line with my liquid eyeliner by Jordana.

Step 3: After priming my lids with my Urban Decay Primer Potion, I applied the tan color in the EP24 Unforgettable palette (the 3rd color from the left) to my entire lid below the crease.

Step 4: I then applied the dark brown color (last color from the left) to the outer corner of my lids and the crease.

Step 5: I touched up some of the tan that was lost when I applied the dark brown and made sure to blend the colors together with my blending brush.

Step 6: I touched up my liquid liner, as some of the shadow covered it up, and opted to not apply any eye shadow to the brow bone as a highlight. I also opted to not apply any falsies for this look. Instead, I just applied a few coats of my Sky High Curves mascara in very black by Maybelline, and this was the end result:

To finish my look, I used:
  • Pür 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup in Deeper
  • Blot powder by Mac
  • Gold bronzer by Icing
  • Raizin powder blush by Mac
  • 24 Brown lip liner by Jordana
  • Cutie lip gloss by Ulta

And here's a pic of me and my girl P wearing our club fits. This is a tan and black dress I bought from Bebe last year. I love the way it holds everything in like a girdle, LOL!
This next pic was taken after we danced the night away, so my makeup is a little sweated out.
Why we decided to take a pic by the ATM machine, I have no idea. Normally, I don't go to clubs because I don't like the atmosphere, but my girl wanted to ring in her birthday dancing, so I made concessions. Although my husband came with, the men were still aggressive and trying to mack. On top of that, two fights broke out, and we took the second one as our cue to leave. It was case and point as to why I don't like clubs, but I must say that I did have a pretty good time in spite of it all :-).
