Get the Look Beyoncé wore to the FLOTUS' Birthday

I interrupt my regularly scheduled Beyoncé Get the Look post to bring this special Beyoncé Get the Look post in time for Valentine's Day! I was asked to recreate the amazing glittery eye Beyoncé wore to the FLOTUS' 50th birthday party last month and I wanted to save it for a ~special occasion~ because it's such a stunning look.

Charlotte Tilbury tweeted one of her gorgeous quads was used to achieve Beyoncé's look so I immediately set out looking for similar colors in my collection. My version leans a little pink but the general idea is the same! On my (chapped) lips I'm wearing Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Pink in the Afternoon (good lookin' out, winter).

A friend of mine also suggested using L'Oréal Infallible Eyeshadows which totally could work by layering Smoldering Plum/Bottomless Java, Amber Rush, and Eternal Sunshine. I don't own all of those shades but I'm pretty sure you'd get a similar look.

Products Used:
e.l.f. Eyelid Primer
Black Opal Color Splurge Eyeshadow Duo in Brazen Flame
ULTA Eyeshadow in Chianti
EMANI Crushed Minerals Color Dust in Cran-Me-In and Peach Attitude
Sonia Kashuk Eye Shadow Quad in Bronzed Beauty
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner Pencil in Bronze
benefit They're Real! Mascara
e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit in Medium

Step 1: Apply burgundy (Chianti) over eyelid and outer crease with a fluffy brush.
Step 2: Soften edge with nude (SK Quad Nude) and blend upward to brow bone.
Step 3: Pat cranberry (Cran-Me-In) onto inner & outer eyelid with eyeshadow brush.
Step 4: Pat rose gold (Peach Attitude) onto center of eyelid with eyeshadow brush.
Step 5: Pat gold glitter (SK Quad Glitter) onto center of rose gold with finger.
Step 6: Apply burnt copper (Black Opal Duo) to crease and blend with crease brush.
Step 7: Apply rose gold (Peach Attitude) as highlight to tear duct.
Step 8: Line lower lash line with brown eyeliner, set with brown (SK Quad Brown).
Step 9: Line upper lash line with brown (SK Quad Brown) using liner brush.
Step 10: Line waterline with brown (Bronze) waterproof eyeliner.

I'm aware that this look would have been 1000% better had I worn falsies. My new goal for 2014 is to enroll in False Eyelash Academy and get my masters in False Lash Application Sciences.
