I saw a lot of YouTubers doing this and thought I would get it a whirl myself. I knew I wanted to go with something natural but on the side of bronze or gold. So I went through my entire makeup collection to come up with identical looks, on one side of my face I would only be using high end products and on the other only use drug store products. I did switch sides a few times by accident, but for the most part they look completely the same.
