Step 1Apply the MAC Powerchrome Eye Pencil in Rich Glance to the inner half of the eye and inner corner to create a shimmery, long-wearing base.
Step 2Apply Romantico from the MAC Eye Shadow X4 in Bare My Soul to the inner half of the eyelid using a flat, shader brush.
Step 3Apply When In Rio to the outer half of the eyelid, blending it into the taupe shade and into the crease.
Step 4Flip the brush onto its side and apply When In Rio to the lower lashline, softly blending it inwards and outwards, up towards the brow bone.
Step 5Use a soft, fluffy brush to blend Friendly into the crease, fading it out onto the brow bone.
Step 6Highlight the brow bone with a matte, nude eyeshadow. Use it to clean up the shape and crease a soft, smoky look.
Step 7Use a precise brush to apply a bit of Bare My Soul to the inner corner and about 1/3 of the inner, lower lashline.
Step 8Line the upper and lower lashline with the MAC Powerchrome Eye Pencil with Jet Polished and use an angled brush to soften the line for a smudged, smoky look.
Step 9Apply your favorite black mascara and if you want an extra dramatic look, apply some false lashes as well.
Step 10Use a large brush to sweep the MAC Pro Longwear Bronzer in Sun Dipped over your cheekbones, temples, bridge of your nose, chin and down your neck for a natural-looking sunkissed glow.
Step 11Very lightly, apply the MAC Powder Blush in Hot Nights to the apples of the cheeks, blending backwards towards the hairline.
Step 12Apply a pea-sized amount of MAC Strobe Liquid in Golden Elixir onto the tips of your fingers and massage together to lightly coat your finger tips. Gently pat your hands onto your cheekbones to kiss them with a touch of golden shimmer.
Step 13Apply the MAC Lipstick in Altered Beige to lips for a soft, nude glow that balances perfectly with smoky eyes and sunkissed skin.
Step 14Top off your lips with the MAC Lipglass in Soft Serenade for a hint of pink shimmer.
Step 15Finish off the look with two coats of the MAC Nail Lacquer in Tropical, a super glittery bronze shade.
