This month's challenge is for us to recreate a look using Demi Lovato as our inspiration. When I think of her makeup looks, I think of a smokey eye, bronze face, and nude lips. This is the photo I'm using as my inspiration!
First off, I started with my favorite BB cream and did my brows. Demi always has strong perfectly groomed brows. Then I wanted to warm up my face and I used NYC Sun n Bronze in Coney Island Glow in a "3" shape to add color. You can place it slightly higher than where you would normally put your contour.
Next up, NYC came out with these amazing eye pencils! I've never really liked cream products cause I found them a pain to work with but these are so convenient.

I just used the eyeshadow like a crayon and put the Brooklyn Mocha all over the lid. Then I used my finger to pat the edges to soften up the line. Next, I took the Tribeca Taupe shade and drew it into where I'd normally "contour". I also used my fingers to smudge everything together.
I finished off the eye look with the NYC liquid liner and the NYC Big Bold Volume by the Lash Mascara. The look might not look so daring, but it's a LOT more eye makeup than I would normally wear. (It's always hard to pick up on camera!)
On my lips I'm wearing the NYC Expert Last Satin Matte Lip Color in Smooth Beige ($1.99) and a nude lipgloss on top. The lipsticks had a fantastic formula and a nice satin finish. There's a ton of pretty bright summery colors too so keep an eye out at the NYC counter.

Overall, I'm super excited about the products that were sent this month! I'm definitely putting one of these eye pencils in my makeup bag for work! I tried washing it off the back of my hand and it stayed on, waterproof check!
