Here’s a step by step breakdown of how to get Shay’s Stunning red carpet Bronzy Glow!
I prepped her skin with Talika- Eye Therapy Patches and
Murad- Skin Perfection Lotion
I wanted to be sure her makeup would last all night so I used Urban Decay- Eye Shadow Primer Potion all over her eye lids.
I used Bobbi Brown stick foundation to even out her skin tone, I used this as concealer as well. (MUST HAVE)
YSL-Touche Echlat to give a pop of light under her eyes
I filled in her eye brows with Anastatsia- Brow Wiz
I blended MAC- Soft Brown eyeshadow into her crease and smudged it under her eye as well.
I applied MAC-Bronze eyeshadow to her eye lid. I wet the brush for more intensity and blended this under her eye as well.
I lined the inner rim of her eyes with TARTE- Sunstone Bronze Pencil. These are so Amazing, They glide right on and once they dry they’re completely waterproof!
I highlighted her inner corners with Urban Decay-Half Baked Eye Shadow
Followed by a strip of Ardell- Demi Whispies fake eye lashes and a few added individuals in the center for thickness.
then applied Loreal’ Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black (MUST HAVE) to blend them together
I used Make Up For Ever- HD Creme Blush in #6 over the foundation (before powder) to give her cheeks a pop of color.
TARTE- Park Avenue Princess Bronzer was blended on her nose, cheeks, nose and chin to give the whole look a sun kissed glow.
I then dusted Too Faced- Sun Bunny on her cheekbones for added highlight
Shay has the most Gorgeous lips, I used TARTE- Bold lipstick on her which is Stunning!
Another (MUST HAVE)
I stocked her up with MAI COUTURE Blotting Papers for the evening. Check these out, on MaiCouture.com she features Blotting papers that have bronzer or blush on them so you don’t need to bring makeup out with you for touch ups. Genius!
To finish off her golden goddess look I used a touch of my product Carlene K SHINE BRONZER on her arms to make sure her glowing makeup blended all the way down!
This product is a MUST for red carpets!

@MelanieLBBH Here’s a list of the products I used!
I started by using SMASHBOX-Photo Finish Primer
I evened out her skin tone with Make Up For Ever - HD Foundation #120
and set her with Make Up For Ever- Velvet Finish Powder Compact in 00
I used TARTE Blush in-Tipsy (Coral) on the apples of her cheeks
I shaded MAC-Soft Brown in her crease
Urban Decay- Half Baked Eye Shadow on her eyelid (I wet the brush to create a more dramatic effect)
I pressed a teeny teeny bit of MAC Glitter in Gold on top of it
I gave her a thick black (waterproof) winged eye liner on top with Make Up For Ever-
Aqua Cream Liner in Black
#53 Ardell Brand Lashes and DUO Black glue
And added a couple coats of Make Up For Ever- Aqua Smoky Lash in Black
Melanie loves a strong lip so we chose to mix Make Up Forever- Aqua Rouge in #8 Red/12 purple to create a deep brick red tone. This lip color really does last Forever!!
Lastly I gave her body a flawless glow with a combo of Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation #2 and My product Carlene K SHINE BRONZER! (www.CarleneKCosmetics.com
My girl Nikki Deloach is glowing on the red carpet at MTV’s “Awkward” Season 2 premiere. You know she’s rockin Carlene K Shine Bronzer !!
In honor of all the gorgeous red lips at last nights Golden Globe’s, My Makeup Monday recommendation is one of my absolute favorite red lipsticks.
MAC- RUBY WOO!
The perfect red, and it’s Super Matte, which in my opinion is the best! Matte red’s look super classic & velvety and they really stay put without bleeding. This is a red every girl should have in their collection! I recommend this with MAC- Cherry Lip Liner.

MAC Paint Pot in Nubile. I just got this a few days ago and have fallen in Love. Amazing eye shadow base, and just a great all over lid color, looks really nice under the brow as a highlighter too. The Paint pots are super creamy and easy to blend, I can’t wait to get more colors!
If you are a makeup junky you know how important brushes are when it comes to achieving great makeup. Great Tools are key for every artist!!! You can get color to deposit much better with proper brushes. Here is a breakdown of the brushes I use for all my makeup applications!…
Foundation/ Creme Blush Brush- Smashbox
This brush distributes and blends cremes perfectly across the skin.
Spot Concealer Brush- Laura Mercier
This brush is great for covering up blemishes or dark circles.
Under Eye Powder- Urban Decay
This is a blending brush, but I use it to set translucent powder under and around the eyes, its perfect. It’s also great for applying base eye shadow and blending out shadows.
Powder Brush- Smashbox
This brush is so soft, and I love the shape it dispenses powder evenly into the creases of the face. Love!
Blush Brush- Japonesque
Maybe the softest brush Ive ever used, I also love the shape of this brush, use it flat for the apples of the cheeks, turn it sideways to contour the cheekbones.
Eye Brow Brush- Bobbi Brown and MAC
Bobbi brush is more firm so you can get a super defined brow, the color will go on heavier, the MAC brush is thinner which is great for fine brows and eye liner.
Eye Shadow Crease Brush- Philosophy
I use this brush on every eye makeup I do, it fits perfectly into the crease and gives a soft blended crease, a must have!
Defined Crease Brush-Laura Mercier
This gives you a super defined crease, I’ve used this brush since day 1 of my makeup career, literally cannot live without it. It also gives the perfect smokey eye, smudge any shadow under the eye into lash line.
Eye Shadow Brush- MAC #239
This has recently become a new fav! I use this to apply eye shadow all over the eye lid, as well as smudge shadow or eye liner around the eye. This brush is synthetic so it can be used wet as well, great to wet eyeshadows and apply to lid or under eye concealer as well.
Eye Liner Brush- MAC 209/ Urban Decay Wonder Brush
The 209 brush makes applying winged eyeliner effortless. The Wonder Brush is called that because it does everything! Smudgy eyeliner, eye shadow and again this brush is synthetic so it is a great lip brush! Urban Decay has all synthetic brushes- No Animal Hair!
Lip Brush- Japonesque Retractable Lip Brush/ Smashbox Lip
Im so super picky with lip brushes, a tapered end is a must, and i like them to be semi firm and not flimsy. These are 2 favs. Its alwasy great to have a retractable brush to keep in your makeup bag!
and last but not least…
Smashbox Face & Body Brush #19- I use this for Body Makeup…AKA Carlene K Shine Bronzer. This is awesome for applying body bronzer or shimmer. If you don’t want to get lotion all over your hands, it fits into the curves and creases of your body. It is super firm so it deposits a lot of product quickly! Love!
Happy Shopping…… XOXO
This is too much fun, and will save you $$$. While cleaning last week I rediscovered my bag full of old MAC lipsticks, all the pale pinks I’ve worn over the past couple years. I’ve been saving them up because MAC has a recycling program, bring in 6 empty plastic containers and get a free lipstick! I literally could not sleep the other night thinking about the amazing pink palette I was going to make. Haha, total makeup geek, I know!
Today I went to one of my fav beauty stores and purchased a JAPONESQUE-Lipstick Palette Kit. So stoked! $18.99. It comes with the perfect 8 pan palette, a spatula, a melting/pouring bowl and a lip brush. SCORE!
I then laid out all my fav lipsticks and arranged them in the order I wanted.
Here’s the key, most people get to where their lipstick is flat and they cant apply it anymore, and they toss it. NOOO, Don’t Do It! There’s still half a tube of lipstick left in the bottom half of the case. People are throwing out their lipsticks half used.
So take the spatula, and scrape out every ounce of lipstick until theres nothing left, and wipe it all off into the melting bowl.
Then place the bowl in the microwave for 40-60 seconds. The bowl is rubber so its ok to microwave, however it does get really hot.
Let it cool for a few seconds, bend the bowl a bit and pour it into the selected slot. Fill it to the brim but not over.wipe the bowl clean while the lipstick is still in liquid form, it cleans super easy.
Then Repeat until all the slots are filled….Take a pointed QTip and wipe the edges so it looks nice and neat.
Isn’t she pretty????
And Finally, gather all your empty containers, march them back into the MAC store and cash in on a brand new lipstick!!
This saves so much room in my personal makeup bag, and now that I’ve done this for me, I will definitely be doing this for my makeup kit. Like most people Im a creature of habit and I definitely have my favorite colors that I stick to. Yet I carry around a million lipsticks. This will lighten my load and make my job so much easier.
Hope you give it a try!! xoxox
Carlene K SHINE BRONZERBlend the bronzer all over the skin that is showing and match foundation to the body.
SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer- Apply this to the face before the foundation, it creates a smooth palette for the makeup and keeps it on much longer.
URBAN DECAY Brow Box in Honey Pot
URBAN DECAY Primer Potion- Eden Blended under the brow and halfway down the eyelid, and Sin Blended all over the eye lid.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creme #14 - Blend the creme across the lash line and into a V shape in the outer corners, blend inward, and smudge under the eye into a thin line or a smokey eye. This product is great, it really stays on!
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack-Blend a very thin line along the top lash line.
BENEFIT Talk to the Tan- I love this creme bronzer, it is great applied to the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin to give a warm sunkissed look.
CARLENE K Shine Bronzer- This is a body product, but it can be used on the face. It has a glow to it so I wouldn’t use it all over but it gives the most beautiful bronzy glow across the cheekbones.
Great neutral every day color.
To add a bit of drama we turned this into an evening look by adding a thick black fake eyelash on top, and a Bright poppy lip color in MAC Sashimi Mimi.
