The A List + Giveaway

One of my favorite date night looks, includes the Bare Minerals--A List Eye Shadow. Every time I apply this eye shadow at work or out and about, I always get complimented, so I thought I would make a post to share it with you. If you like my makeup in the below photo, maybe you can even try it out, and see what you think. I would love to see photos of your inspired A List look.

Also today I will be doing a giveaway! Keep reading to see how you can enter to win!

PREP: It starts with a clean face. Before putting any kind of makeup on, I always apply a toner to my entire face. My favorite toner is Mario Badescu Aloe Vera Toner. Always use a cotton ball to apply any kind of toner to the face, never use tissue paper or toilet paper which irritates the skin.

PRIME:Next, I start by applying a dime size amount of VS Pro Airbrush Oil-Free Primer SPF 15 to my entire face by lightly blending. What's nice about this primer is that it makes blending your makeup very simple to do.

BRONZE:Now apply the Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer evenly by using Real Techniques Powder Brush. If you notice any areas that needs blending simply take the tip of your fingers using a circular motion to blend in the bronzer.


EYES: I used Bare Minerals A List Eyeshadow. Step 1. Start by applying the black to the outer part of your eye using Smashbox Definer Brush #15. Step 2. Use the white on the entire eye lid, blending into the black. Step 3. Use the pink color on the inside corner of your eyes blending back towards the white and the black. This is the BEST ever eyeshadow it's totally worth the money. I swear!

For my mascara I use Revlon Photo Ready 3D Volume Waterproof Mascara.

And just like that you now have your "A List Look"!

Now for the giveaway! Because I love my Real Techniques Powder Brush so much, I wanted you to experience the greatness too!
