"I often will use a bronzing stick or powder on the lid as an alternative to traditional eye shadow. It imparts a subtle warmth that really compliments all eye colors. The textures of both powder and cream bronzers these days tend to be quite sheer as well, which is great for building a natural tone without the heavy look that some eye shadows can deliver."
Step 1) Apply a layer of bronzing stick or powder all over the lid, from lash line to just above the crease. Use a fluffy dome-shaped eye shadow brush in back and forth strokes worked in thin layers to get a sheer wash of color.
"Use a nice fluffy brush so that the application is soft and even. I used a MAC #224 Brush - a mainstay in my kit for all shadow looks- to both apply and blend. For bottom lash lines, NARS Eye Contour Brush is the perfect softly tapered shape.Hold your brushes lightly. It might sound silly but it makes it way easier to get a good blend and really move color around than if you grip your brushes tightly."
Step 2) Add a thin haze of the color under bottom lash lines with a smaller fluff brush. You can stop here, add a swipe of mascara, or continue onto the steps below for a more finished look.
