Tiki Bar: Bright Blue and Bronze Ombre Metallic Smokey Eye with Rose Copper Glitter Lip


Blue is one of my absolute favorite colors to use in makeup looks, and so I decided to reimagine a classic bronze haze summer heat look with a pop of blue metal.

I started the look by priming the face with the Tarte Base Tape Primer, and then I buffed the Fenty Pro Filt’r Foundation into the skin with a buffing brush. I then concealed under the eyes, and set that by baking a translucent setting powder into the skin with a makeup sponge.

I blended a pinky beige matte shade into the upper crease, and then went in with a matte cool-toned brown shade, both from the Lorac Unzipped Palette. I started hazing out some metallic shades on the eyes, by spraying a shader brush with some setting spray, and then dipped into Bass (copper bronze metallic) from the Urban Decay Heavy Metals Palette. I blended that into the outer half of the lid, and then dipped into Amp (hot turquoise metallic) from that same palette, and packed that onto the inner half of the eyelids. I took a white glitter liquid eyeshadow from Pixi Beauty, and applied that to the center of the eyelids, in between the bronze and blue shadows, and then went over the top of that with Cosmic Ocean (bright blue shimmer), from the Fenty Beauty Galaxy Palette. I highlighted the eyes with the Pat McGrath Labs Mothership III Palette, using Skinshow Fever (light beige shimmer) on the brow-bone, and VR Pink (pink metal shimmer) on the inner corner of the eyes. I added some extra shimmer to the inner corner by going over that pink with Oh-Zone (white shimmer) from the Fenty Galaxy Palette. I finished the eye look by applying some mascara to the top, and bottom lash-lines.

I quickly filled in the brows, by running a brow pencil through them, shaping out the bottom line of the eyebrows. I bronzed the cheekbones with Laguna from NARS, and then highlighted the high points of the face with the Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit, using Lyra (peach gold), and Eclipse (champagne peach). I finished the look by doing a glitter lip. I applied a beige metallic liquid lipstick as a base, and then went over that with a glitter blend of a pink chunky glitter, and a copper glitter.
