FOTD: Sexy Neutral? and ecoTools Bronzer Brush Review

Haha I don't know what to call this look, but I did it before work yesterday and I love it.  I felt pretty all day and my makeup only started to fade if even after 8 hours.  Sorry my pictures are taken with my phone so they aren't the highest of quality but you can still see what I used.

Eye Primer: LORAC Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
Eyeshadow: LORAC Box Office Hit palette 
Eyeliner (Top): wet n wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner in Dark Brown
Eyeliner (Waterline): Cover Girl Liquiline Blast in Green Glow
Mascara: Maybelline Colossal Mascara in Black
Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Normal/Dry Skin in Sand Beige
Powder: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium
Concealer: Physician's Formula Conceal Rx in Natural Light
Blush/Bronzer: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer in Posie Glow
Highlighter: Jane. Shimmering Blush in Wisteria
Lip: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Peach Petal
 
Tid bit: Jane's shimmering blush was used only on the highest part of my cheekbone and along the slope of my nose.

Tid bit: To line my bottom lash line I used the navy shade from the LORAC palette.
And although the Green Glow eyeliner is very light and not as dramatic as I paid/hoped for it to be, it's a very pretty accent to the whole eye look.

Love this brush! The ecoTools Bronzer Brush is very dense and applies MAC MSF like a dream.  It also doesn't leave a lot of extra dust or whatever you want to call it when swipe the brush across the powder.  The handle is thicker and makes holding the brush during application much easier.  I just don't like the bamboo look of the ecoTools line.

EXTRAS OF MY LIFE:

My old puppy:

Detroit Electronic Music Festival
Eek, I got to meet Skrillex!

Dress/Shirt that I made all freehand :) First time too. I did watch a tutorial for sewing on the sleeves though.  I forgot her name, but it was really helpful.  It looks skanky in this picture because of the lighting, but it's not.  I would also wear it with tights.

@FoxyAries: I really like all of the ecoTools brushes except for their eyeshadow brushes which are to slick to pick up any shadow.

@Amalia J: Thank you :)

@cocotheferret: My boyfriend and I thought he looked a little like him too.
