For her engagement shoot, Katie requested a bronze eye-makeup look.  Since she is of fair skin-tone, I incorporated more coppers to match the warm tones of her roots, without going too orange.  Here are the products I used:


Face Atelier Foundation

I wanted Katie's face to look hydrated and youthful, mimicking the reflective water and glow of being in love. Face Atelier is perfect because it provides medium to full coverage, but it still looks like skin.  

BECCA Backlight 

I don't use primers on most clients, but I definitely carry this one because it provides a beautiful glow without any glitter particles.  This gives the coveted "lit from within" look.

The Saem Concealer

Caucasian skin-tones often have heavy discoloration on the under-eyes since their skin is very fair.  I used The Saem's "Brightener" shade to cover up Katie's discoloration.  This product has enough coverage where I can apply the regular foundation color over without it being cakey.  

Charlotte Tilbury Powder

To provide a smooth finish to lay additional powder products on, I applied a light sweep of this CT powder to the entire face.  It gives a light amount of coverage and is buildable.    

Pony Effect

I received this contour powder from Memebox and decided to try it on Katie.  I wanted to provide warmth to the face without making her look orange or muddy, but still keeping her fair, yet hydrated, skin the main focus.

BECCA's Pearl

This is the only highlighter I use on very fair skin.  It blends in and provides a beautiful glow without being too obvious.

Senna Divine Shine

To add the bronze to the eyes, I just added a sweep of the right color to Katie's eye with a blending brush.  It provided a sheen since we had the sun to play with.

Fenty Gloss Bomb

I use this on almost everyone because it's such a universal gloss.  It isn't sticky, but provides a good amount of coverage with the right amount of shine.
