20 Minute Spring Makeup With Gray Eyeliner and Bronzer

Hello beautiful people! Spring is the perfect time to try new things, and makeup is no exception. I was reading the March 2021 issue of Health Magazine when I came across cover star Rosario Dawson’s feature article. Rosario is stunning already, but her cover look was absolutely breathtaking. Shanell Sorrells is the credited makeup artist for Rosario’s look, and I must say I was really inspired to recreate the beauty for myself!

I loved the gray eyeliner as opposed to my usual black, the bronzer instead of my go-to blush and nude pink lips instead of gloss. It was just a nice change to my everyday makeup, but in a subtle way. The gray eyeliner is still dark, but softens the eye in a flattering style. The bronzer brings warmth to the cheeks and the lipstick adds a nice pop of color. I ended up layering lip liner and two different lipsticks to get a bolder hue and also added a deep brown shadow to the crease to add more dimension.

On my first try, I just played with products I already owned and it took me 20 minutes to complete. You’ll be surprised to know that the gray eyeliner is not eyeliner at all, but eyeshadow! I used Mac’s fix plus on an angled brush and coated it with a gray shadow before adding it to the eyes. I was very pleased with the result. 😊 The products I used are below.
