Instructions
1. Take a warm taupe eyeshadow (we used Bake from the Morphe 350 Nature Glow Artisty Palette) on a fluffy brush. Work this color into the crease to add depth and definition.
2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, apply a warm, deep brown eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eye to intensify the look. We used Choco from the same palette.
3. Using a smaller detailer brush, take a shimmery gold eyeshadow and apply on the inner portion of each eyelid. We went for Morphe's Glow Girl.
4. Take the same detailer brush, and apply an intense quartz-colored powder highlighter to the inner corner of each eye. We used the shade Tourmaline from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit.
5. Using the same flat eyeshadow brush as before, take the warm, deep brown shade underneath your lower lash line to smoke out the look.
6. Apply a liberal coat of black mascara to both top and bottom eyelashes.
7. Use a lip brush and a warm nude lipstick (we went for MAC's Honey Love) to define and color your lips.
