Products used in order:

  • Apply a small dot of Urban Decay – Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Anti-Aging) to each eyelid and let dry before applying product.
  • First, with the Urban Decay – Baked Bronzer (Toasted), I use a fluffy, tapered eyeshadow brush, blend as transition color in area right above crease.
  • With the Sephora Collection – Moonshadow Baked Palette (In the Tropics):
    • Martinique: use a fluffy, tapered eyeshadow brush, blend as transition color in area right above crease.
    • Grenada: Apply on outer corner of the lid by initially pressing color close to lashline and blending up into the crease and out, to create a ‘V’ shape
    • Fiji: Apply to the inner corner of the lid by starting with pressing product by the lashline and blending up towards the crease, but not into it
    • Bermuda: Apply to mid-lid by first pressing close to lashline, and then blending up and towards the inner and outer lid colors, but not blending over them and overpowering them
    • Martinique: Using a thin brush, apply tight to my lower lash lines and then blend away the harsh line, then I wet the brush and applied it tightly to my upper lash line
  • Apply about a dime-sized amount of Urban Decay – Naked Skin Beauty Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 20, with fingers so the warmth from your hands helps blend the product better and since it doesn’t provide full coverage, streaks aren’t a huge concern.
  • Using about a pump and a half of Urban Decay – Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup (3.5), I apply it first with my fingers around my face and down my neck and then follow up with my beautyblender sponge to blend out any streaks and to create an even finish.
  • With a loose, fluffy face powder brush apply Urban Decay – Naked Skin Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder (Naked Light) all over the face to set product
  • Using the Benefit Cosmetics – Cheek Parade (“Beauty and the Beat” Blush Kit):
    • Hoola:
      • Nose: using the same fluffy eye shadow brush to set under eyes, I use this to lightly contour the sides of my nose
      • Cheeks: using an angled contour/blush brush, I blend this below my cheekbones to create added depth
      • Forehead hairline: Using the same brush as for my cheek contour, I blend this on my upper forehead and into my hairline to give the appearance of a smaller forehead
      • Temples: Using the same brush as I did for my cheek contour, I blend this in my temples towards my hairline to give the appearance of a thinner face
    • GALifornia:
      • Using a fluffy blush brush, I apply this along my cheekbones to bring life back into my cheeks
    • Rockatueur:
      • Inner eye groove: Using MUD’s 330 brush, I apply here to create eyes that look more awake and eye-catching

And here’s the final look:
