10 minute face with Trae Bodge

Trae Bodge, Co-Founder of Three Custom Color Specialists, gave us some great tips on how to achieve the perfect 5 minute face (which can be viewed here).

This is a continuation of that post, and with just 5 more minutes you can take the 5 minute face from day to night.

To go from day to evening with this look (while also incorporating Fall/Winter Trends!), we suggest the following:

EYES & BROWS – To create more of an evening look using the Fall trend of a smokey, bronzey eye, apply another layer of the brown or grey eye pencil along the lash line and buff along that line and then upwards towards the crease with a bronze eye shadow to create a shimmering smokiness (Three Custom Gilded Eye Shadow would be great for this, pictured right). Depending on your eye shape, this can be repeated underneath the eye for more drama. Apply an additional layer of mascara on top and bottom lashes.

CHEEKS – We recommend going neutral for this look. Try a soft, neutral beige in a gel formula, and use this tone on the lips as well, lining the lips with a neutral beige pencil for more definition. For the blush, try Three Custom's Wallflower, pictured left. I have this and I wear it almost every day. It is super natural so that when you play up your eyes, there's not too much going on everywhere.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS - Three Custom Color Specialist's Gilded Eye Shadow (New!), Wallflower Watercolors for Cheeks and Beige Lip Liner.
