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!

I started by using SMASHBOX-Photo Finish Primer

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!!

NARS- Blush in Torrid
Highlighted her cheekbones with Smashbox Halo Highlighting wand

and applied Carlene K Shine Bronzer on her body for a bronzy glow.
#Makeup and Hair by Carlene K
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in “Perversion” is literally the blackest eyeliner I’ve ever used. Once it dries it doesn’t budge and stays all day. Cannot live without it!
Cannot live without these eye liner pencils. URBAN DECAY. The best! So much pigment, they glide right on, blend easy and last all day. Current obsession, Graffiti, the green one!!
Here’s my product recommendation for today! URBAN DECAY- Starlight Eyeshadow in “Diamond Dog”. I used this last night on Kristin Cavallari for the AMA Rolling Stone Party. These shadows are super sheer but packed with SPARKLES!!! Love these layered on top of a creme shadow. www.UrbanDecay.com
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
