AMW Version: "Summer's Almost Over"

AMW Version for the week, I brought out my Dollface 88pcs Eyeshadow Palette because I haven't been using it much lately!  The summer may be over but there's no reason why I cannot use bronzey colored eyeshadow because it works on a lot of skin color!   

"Summer's Almost Over" --- a look I created to showcase the look of summer (using bronze) and the coming of the rainy season (silvery gray colors).  Blended together to showcase the weird sunny and rainy days we are encountering nowadays!

AMW Diagram

Step 1:
Prior to eyeshadow application, you can opt to use your favorite eyeshadow primer, in my case, I used the Maybelline Impact Express eyeshadow stick in gold.

Pat on a similar shade on top.  I gently dab it all over my lids going a bit beyond the crease.  

Step 2:
I used a smaller brush to define my crease by drawing a line a little bit above my crease, filled in dark silver eyeshadow from the same Dollface 88pcs Eyeshadow Palette.  You can opt to use different shades to match with the gold eyeshadow on Step 1.

Step 3:
Use a matte beige eyeshadow, I applied this on the brow bone as "highlight".

I forgot to draw a diagram but I used a shimmery white eyeshadow to be applied on the inner corner to brighten up your eyes.

Step 4:
Line my upper lash line with Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner in Black.  Tight line with Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in dark brown and also lined my waterline.

Curled my lashes and apply coats of your favorite mascara.  In this AMW Version, I am using Revlon CustomEyes Waterproof Mascara in Black.

 Voila, a bit bigger looking eyes for someone who has small eyes :D

And here's to show you what I used on the rest of my face

For the Face:
San San Soleil Matte Foundation
Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover in BO10

For the Cheeks:
I Nuovi Colours D36 in Lollipop

For the Lips:
San San Soleil Lipstick in Nude Carribean
