Bright and Smoky Eyes for Back-to-School!


I like to play up what little cheekbone definition I have, so I’m pairing a matte bronzer with a shimmery blush. Between the two of them, we can create some subtle contours and highlights to add natural-looking definition to the face. The bronzer I’m using is Lorac TANtalizer, and the blush is NYX Pinched.  Apply both as shown here, and be sure to blend for a natural finish.  Those color blocks are for illustrative purposes. Please don’t walk out of the house actually looking like that.
