Four occasions, four easy looks. Gentlemen, start your engines.
E.l.f. Bronzed Beauty Set across your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline, then circle the blush on the apples of your cheeks. I like to dab Nuxe-Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil Shimmer across my cheekbones and eyelids. And if you're into cleavage, I bet it would look great there too. Finally, a swipe of NYX Extra Creamy Lipstick in the color Harmonica. Don't worry about eyebrows, or lashes. This look is about your skin.
E.l.f. Luxury Brush Collection, and it's pretty much been a game changer for me. It's one of those things where you THINK you're doing fine on your own before you have them, but then after you do, you're like, wow I really could've used that concealer brush like 10 years ago. Still have yet to find a use for the fan-shaped one though.
Bonus points for a date night turtleneck. Embrace your inner Keaton.
For a dinner party with friends, I think it's easier to get away with a bolder look. Probably won't keep your son from asking you what happened to your face, but your friends will totally love it. I stuck with a neutral palette, keeping my lips nude and doing a warm bronzy blend with NYX Love in Paris Shadow Palette in Merci Beaucoup.
I prepped my eyelids with Nuxe-Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil Shimmer and then used a wet shadow brush to give the color application more intensity.
To switch over to more of a deck-the-halls vibe in less than 5, grab a dry wipe and rub all your eye shadow off. This is actually impossible because you're using a dry wipe, but that's sort of the point. You'll be left with a slight bronzy highlight around your lids, that just needs to be topped off with a swipe of your favorite dark lip color.
Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Lip Crayon in Mulberry Nude, that you can use as-is, or layer over top of a deep brown to give it a really pretty, rich hue.
