Recreate Etienne Ortega's Look

STEP 1: Etienne Ortega starts by using the MISTAKE PROOF BRONZER in Untamed as an eyeshadow primer. You can add a small amount on the lower lash line for a good base. It's lightweight and easy to blend formula is a perfect foundation for the next steps.

STEP 2: Use your finger to apply the METAL LEAF SHADOW POT in Mic Drop on the eyelid for a couture foiled leaf finish. Don't forget to add a little to the lower lash line. A little sparkle is what makes this daytime look a glam one!

STEP 3: To add a little more color, apply the galactic duochrome side of the DUAL DRAMA LIQUID EYELINER in Interstellar to the top lash line. Follow up with the Dark Matter side of the eyeliner for a thin cat-eye finish. 

STEP 4: Apply the MISTAKE PROOF BRONZER in Illicit on the forehead (along the hairline) and the cheekbones for extra definition and gorgeous glow. 

STEP 5: To add fullness to the cheeks, apply a small amount of the MISTAKE PROOF BLUSH in Brazen to the apples of your cheeks.

STEP 6: For a subtle, glossy finish, pat a pea-sized amount of the gel-cream formula of the MIRROR GLAZE HIGHLIGHTING TRIO in Gold Standard and apply the amount to the high points of your face. Use the GLOW BIG OR GLOW HOME HIGHLIGHTING BRUSH to mix the two powder highlighters and apply it to your nose and the cupid's bow. Add a hint of the lighter shade to the inner corner of the eyes and the brow bones for a natural glow. 

STEP 7: To complete the look, apply the THREEWAY SOLID LIP OIL in Nude Ambition to your lips for a touch of natural color that keeps the focus on your eyes.
