Hey there! This week I tried something a little more artsy for you. I’m not sure I love how it turned out, but everyone that saw it loved it, so here goes.
Since I’m like an oily mess, I started by prepping my face with Murad Oil-Control Mattifier. I then used a Sigma e58 to apply some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone to my eyelids to prep them for later.
I highlighted and concealed under my eyes with some LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealers in Light Yellow and Light Ivory. I blended the crap out of that with a dampened Beauty Blender.
To add some depth, I used a Sigma f40 to bronze a bit with Palladio Matte Bronzer in No Tan Lines.
I used that same Beauty Blender from before to put some Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo to the area I wanted to highlight. After a couple of minutes, I used a Morphe e41 to sweep away the excess. Then I once again blended, with a Morphe m530 this time.
To fake a flush, I used my Sigma f15 to sweep some Jouer Powder Blush in Peony on my cheeks. Then, guess what! I blended again! This time with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.
To glow like I wish I could, I used my trusty Morphe m310 to sweep some Ben Nye Shimmer Powder in Cameo onto my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
Now for the brows! As usual, I used an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate to fill them in and shape them. I used a Sigma e58 and some Dermablend Professional Cover Creme in Natural Beige to clean up the edges.
Next I grabbed a Sigma e40 and used Adorable from my Blackheart Pastel Dreams Palette as a transition shade. In my crease, I used a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to apply some Sweetheart from the same palette. For my eyelids, I used a Morphe e14 to pay on some Hello Lovely from the same palette.
Now for the fun part!
I started with a pretty bold winged liner using LA Splash Cosmetics Art-Ki-Tekt Waterproof Slim Eyeliner.
I used NYX Cosmetics Vivid Brights Colored Liquid Liner in Vivid Delight to create small dots along the liner to represent the center of flowers.
Then, I used a Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush dipped into Stila Liquid Lipstick in Como, and used it to create “petals” around the orange dots.
For leaves, I used a Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliner in Emerald Glisten.
Then, as usual, I doused myself in Ben Nye Final Seal Matte Makeup Sealer and said a prayer to the makeup gods that my hard work doesn’t melt away.
I prepped my lashes with L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara. I tossed on the third pair from the Violet Voss Eye Believe in Unicorns set with a bit of Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
I finished of the whole thing with some Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Curvy Candy.
I’ll see you soon!
