How to | Cool brown eyes and terracotta lips

Hello Lovelies!

Today I will be going through how I created this look!
Its cooler toned browns/nudes and a rich terracotta lip

These are the products I used
-Loreal Lumi Magique foundation N4 Pure Beige
- NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat powder foundation in Nude
-Maybeline Fit Me concealer in Light
-Elf Studio Pressed powder in Porcelain 
-Sleek MakeUP Face Form contouring kit in medium
- MUA blusher in Candyfloss
- Gerard cosmetics Star Powder in Marilyn
- Morphe individual shadows in Porcelain, Deep Skin, Bridesmaid and Deep Cocoa
-Maybelline Hyper Sharpe Wing liner and Lash Sensational mascara
-PONI cosmetics brow dust in Thoroughbred 
-Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in 1995


Loral Lumi Magic fondation - I applied this with a foundation brush to achieve a medium coverage, I used a foundation brush (brand unknown) and it blended well!
Maybelline Fit Me concealer - Applied in a triangle shape under the eyes, a line down the bridge of my nose and a line on my forehead to highlight those areas, blended in with a concealer brush (brand also unknown). The shade is lighter than my foundation to achieve a highlighted look
Elf Studio Pressed powder - Applied with a BH cosmetics powder brush to set under the eyes and mattify the forehead and nose 
NYX stay matt but not flat powder foundation - Applied on the rest of the face with a large BH cosmetics powder brush  

Blush, highlight and contour 

MUA blusher - Applied with the xo beauty medium dome face brush starting from tom of the cheek bones and swirling down the the "apples of the cheek"
Sleek MakeUP face form contouring kit - Using the darkest brown on the Morhpe tapered powder/blush brush  and in quick blending motions I applied it just under my cheek bones coming down on an angle
Gerard Cosmetics star powder - Applied above the cheekbone with a BH Cosmetics blush brush

Eyes and brows

Morphe individual shadows - I applied Porcelain on the entire lid, however focused on the lower lid so it stands out agains the dark shadows. I then applied Deep Skin on the crease line blending inwards slightly and brought it out to just past where my eye ends. I did the same with Bridesmaid but didn't bring it inwards as much. Deep Cocoa was applied just on the outer crease to create some depth. 
Brushes used were BH Cosmetics eyeshadow brush, small eyeshadow brush, Designer Makeup Tools soft tapered blend brush and xo beauty round top blender brush 
Maybelline Hyper Sharpe wing liner - Using the thin side of the liner I created a wing from the lower lash line to meet up with the shadow I blended out. I then brought it back in, keeping the wing thin towards the upper lash line. Using the thicker side I follow along the lash line into the inner corner
Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara - Applied in an upward motion, with a slight wiggle 
PONI cosmetics brow shadow - Using the BH cosmetics angled eyeliner brush and starting at the end of the brow, lightly blend the dust following the natural shape of the brow


Gerard Cosmetics lipstick 1995 - I dont have a lip liner that would match so I used the edge of the lipstick to line my lips and then applied as usual

I was really happy with this look!
