Smokey Bronze Eyes & FOA Illuminator

I called my friend Lara yesterday to see if she would let me try out Face of Australia's new Illuminator that I had picked up (when getting some milk!). Turned out she was going for dinner later that night, so she was happy to be my "guinea pig" yet again...thanks Lars
 1. Firstly, I applied the Gorgeous Cosmetics eye primer to her lids and then some shimmery bronze eyeshadows (mostly from the NYX Nude palette)
2. Next, I used an eyeliner pen and winged out the lash line just a little.
3. Then I blended a little black eyeshadow with the MAC pencil brush, to soften the top lash line and give a little definition to the bottom lashline. I used iInk pencil from Gorgeous Cosmetics to line the top and bottom water line (tight lining). Lars then applied her own mascara, because she freaks out when I do it (lol)...she used Dior Show mascara. Then I applied 3 sets of individual flares to the outer corner of each eye with the dark lash glue, I like it better than the clear one these days...meh
Lara's little bag of tricks. Cute bag..I think it's Mimco

The eyeshadows from the NYX palette have great pigment, I find them very similar to the MAC eyeshadows. The glittery finish that I applied to the inner corners and blended out is a loose dust from Gorgeous Cosmetics in Suede (looks beautiful on it's own too).
You'd think this post was sponsored by Gorgeous Cosmetics, but it's not...I'm just a BIG fan of this Aussie brand.

I used the MAC 190 foundation brush to apply Revlon's Colourstay foundation and thne to apply and blend the FOA Illuminator in Angel Mist to Lara's Cheekbones. I used my fingers to blend a little under her brow and on the cupids bow too.
