Brown & golden smokey eye for women over 40 // just Mel // Fashion & Beauty

I love experimenting with new makeup looks and will be giving you the details of this look here.  If you would like to see me do tutorials on YouTube on any of the looks you see, please just comment and let me know.

This is a warm golden look with a pale lip.  I started it off with my fave moisturizer, Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting cream.  This stuff spells really nice and is very nice under my makeup.  After that I use Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eye Brightener.  I use is under my eyes and down my nose.  It works very well as a brightener.  Next, I use NYX Tinted Moisturizer.  I love this stuff!  I have found that traditional foundation really settles into my fine lines and pores.  This tinted moisturizer is thinner and gives a nice glow.  I use Mally Beauty Poreless Perfection Foundation.  I use this as my powder.  It is very smooth and I just love it!

My contour is something I am still learning.  I love the Mally Beauty Shimmer, Shape & Glow.  The contour color is just a great shade for adding that shadow effect.  The shimmer is not too shimmery so it doesn't accent the fine lines.  The blush is great for adding that wonderful glow.

I have been using Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade for quite a while now.   I love that it is waterproof.  My brows are nonexistent so I need to use something that will stay in place throughout the whole day.  This definitely does that.  Moving on my eyeshadow.  I love the NYX palettes.  For this look I used the NYX Dream Catcher Palette in Golden Horizons and the NYX Wicked Dreams palette.   I used the golden shadow from both palettes and a sparkly brown.

The eyeliner that I have been using is Rimmel ScandalEyes Micro Eyeliner.  It is great for getting that perfect wing.  I use Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara as a base and then Salon Perfect Perfectly Glamorous Demi Whispies Eyelashes.  On my waterline I like to use NYX Wonder Pencil.  I find that a white pencil does not look very natural so I really enjoy using the light color of this product.  It is great in the corner of the eyes to add a little brightness or on your cupids bow to make your lips look fuller.  It is really great for anything and everything.

I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 008.  It is a nude with a hint of pink. This color really seems to go with any look.  I really like this line of lipsticks, they are very creamy and last all day.  They are not drying at all.
