Drugstore Golden Goddess Makeup

I have always been one for the bronzed goddess look when it comes to eye makeup, when you think of me I want you to think of pretty gold dusted eyes. Usually a quick swipe of 'Half Baked' from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette over the top of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'On and On Bronze' and that's me done. Beautiful bronzed eyelids in minutes.

However, I've been trying out a tonne of new products in order to replicate the look Tanya Burr creates in her 'Smoky Evening Makeup for Glasses Wearers' tutorial but without the expensive price tag and thought I'd share with you how I did it. It's a little more golden than what she does but it's still super pretty. 

I applied foundation, concealer, powder and fixed my eyebrows like I would every other day, that's not something I usually experiment with too much. I then applied 'On and On Bronze' like I mentioned before all over the lid, I like to use a generous amount of product in order for a strong base colour. Using any blending brush, I'm using the MAC 217 blend the outer rim of shadow. I then did a light dusting of 'Metallic Light Copper' eyeshadow by Kiko. I just wanted something light to brighten the lid from the metallic shade that 'On and On Bronze' gives.

In the crease, I applied 'Sparkling Brown', also by Kiko however L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in 'Bronzed Taupe' would be a good alternative. 

Over the top, I used a dry brush to apply Barry M Dazzle Dust in 'Tan'. It's a fine glitter is much lighter and more vibrantly gold, similar to Tanya's finished 'Golden Goddess' look. The BM Dazzle Dust's are great, more affordable alternative to the MAC Reflect glitters that Tanya uses in the glasses wearers video. 

I finished the look with my signature cat eye eyeliner and some mascara. I used MAC's 'Blacktrack' gel eyeliner that I mentioned in my 'products I couldn't live without post and Urban Decay Perversion mascara, however, the Soap & Glory 'Cateye' and Rimmel 'Wonderlash' are good drugstore alternatives. 

And tada... I am most certainly not a makeup artist, professional or anything close but I really wanted to share this look with you. I loved it when Tanya wore it and have been itching for a cheaper more affordable version and thought you might be interested too. 

Love always,
