Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

For this week’s beauty post, I would like to share a fabulous look with y’all where I pushed my makeup application skills and layered three creme eye shadows. Phew…I was super scared this was going to go terribly wrong; however, to my surprise, it was super easy! Come on, let’s take a gander at the look + what you will need to achieve it at home :)

To create the eye look, I used Benefit's "Birthday Suit" creme eye shadow as my base color ad Benefit's "My Two Cents" creme eye shadow in the crease because it is complementary to the Laura Mercier I used on the outer-corner of the lid.

To create the eye look, I used Benefit’s “Birthday Suit” creme eye shadow as the base color, Benefit’s “My Two Cents” creme eye shadow as the crease color, and Laura Mercier “Burnished Copper  Metallic” eye creme on the outer corner of the lid.

TIP: The key to blending all the shades together is "buffing". Take a round-tipped brush and gently buff the colors together in tiny circular motions. Remember...wax on, wax off *wink*

Keep in mind that the more you “buff” the lighter the colors will become and the more they will blend….Night-time look=less buffing….Day-time look(pictured)=more buffing.

To line the eyes, I decided to mix things up and swap my normal gray eyeliner for Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in "Violet Ink 4". The deep purple hue really made the bronze-colored eye cremes POP!

Last but not least--the lips. AH! The lipstick is always my favorite part...you could say I am a bit obsessed*wink*

TIP: The key to lipstick that doesn't run is a good complementary hue lip liner. For this look, I lined my lips with Lancome's Le Crayon in "Plum". I colored in the pout of my lip with the "plum" liner before applying Lancome's L'Absolu lipstick in "Berry Silhouette" to add a pout affect.

TIP: The key to lipstick that doesn’t “run” is a good matching lip liner. For this look, I lined my lips with Lancome’s Le Crayon in “Plum”. I colored in “the pout” or the middle of my upper and lower lip with the “plum” liner before applying Lancome’s L’Absolu lipstick in “Berry Silhouette”. Also, another great thing about lip liner is that it can be applied like a lipstick. Given, it is a bit more time consuming, but it creates a matte look that survives several Starbucks.

TAH DAH! The final look:)
