MAKEUP STEPS:
1. First, we begin with the eyes! Start by applying an eyeshadow primer; my personal favorite is NYX’s primer, and it can be found in drugstores!

2. I applied a gold eyeshadow all-over the lid; I used Woodwinked by MAC.

3. Apply a soft brown matte eyeshadow in the crease with a fluffy blending brush.

4. Use a dark brown eyeshadow in the outer corner of your eyes; I used Swiss Chocolate by MAC.

5. Black liner then goes on the top and bottom lids of your eyes. I used Rimmel’s waterproof liner – I can’t emphasize enough that you can’t underestimate drugstore makeup!

6. With a smudgy brush, blend the black liner to soften the line.

7. With the same brush, smudge a little of the dark brown eyeshadow on top of the black eyeliner.

8. It’s time for mascara!

9. Get your brows in line with a good pomade – for this look, I used Salon Perfect’s Light Brown Brow Pomade.

10. Apply bronzer in a “c” formation from your cheekbone and up to your temple to add warmth all over your face.

11. Add blush on top – I used Peaches by MAC to get a romantic pink!

12. To get a little extra glow, add a highlighter! Sun Rush Lustre Drops by MAC do just the trick!

13. For lip color, I chose a neutral pink, and added a gloss on top! White Russian by Buxom is a favorite gloss!

HAIR STEPS:
1. Curl your hair with a one-inch iron.

2. Braid a two-inch section behind the ear, and tie with an elastic.

3. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, including the braid, and tie into a ponytail with an elastic.

4. Pull out hair for texture!

5. Take a one-inch section of the ponytail, and wrap around the ponytail elastic to conceal it! Secure this piece with a bobby pin.
