Cool and Warm Face of the Day

Hey everyone!
So it's been a while since I've done a makeup or face of the day post, but I did a really pretty eye makeup look today that got a few compliments and I thought it was different enough from the usual neutral eye that it warranted a post! So here is my cool + warm makeup of the day!

Face: I didn't do anything with my face today. Not even blush or highlighter! I totally would recommend going with a cooler toned pink with a bronzer or a peach blush with no bronzer. Also, do foundation or concealer or whatever face makeup you'd like.

Eyes: This eye makeup is a cool silver/grey lid and crease with a bit of a cranberry above it. I used a light silver with a lot of shimmer all over the lid. Mine had a lot of fallout so I used a primer, but I don't think that's necessary. I then went to my wet n wild comfort zone palette and used the dark black/brown shade with gold shimmer and applied that to my outer V. I blended out the crease and then took a burgundy shade (the duochrome in the comfort zone palette) and applied that right above my natural crease. This added warmth to contrast the cooler toned lid. I then used a light shimmery yellow tinged cream shade as a highlight. You could go with a pinker toned highlight as well. I smudged some of the dark brown/black shadow under the lower lashlines and applied a liquid liner (black) to the upper lashline. I then used 2 coats of my clinique high impact mascara.

Lips: I applied a lip balm and used my sheer lipstick technique (you can read more about it here) to sheer out my jordana mango lipstick. Its a really nice medium orange neutral. I would recommend going with a natural color (not too nude or bright) and going with a warm toned shade (peach versus barbie pink)

So I hope that you enjoyed this makeup/face of the day! If you did, let me know in the comments and don't forget to follow this blog for new upcoming posts!
