I started by fighting the dreaded oil slick look with NYX Cosmetics Shine Killer. I also prepped my eyes by slapping one some NYX Cosmetics Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone with a Sigma e58.
For a transition shade, I used a Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush to apply the color Clover from the Vera Mona Lotus Eyeshadow Palette. I defined the crease a tad with a Sigma e30 and Celosia from the same palette.
Next, I dampened an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush with some Mehron Mixing Liquid and used that to pat some Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder in Persimmon on to my eyelids. I also threw on some Palladio Double Agent Faux Lash Effect mascara.
Now, to move on to the face. I used a Morphe m439 Bruah to buff in some Inglot Cream Foundation in 43. Next I cream highlighted and contoured using a Bare Mineral Max Coverage Concealer Brush, a Smashbox Liner Brush and the Morphe 20Con palette. I then blended the crap out of that with a dampened Beauty Blender. I also added a bit of a cream highlight by tapping on some NYX Cosmetics Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Gleam with my fingers.
To set all that cream, I grabbed my Morphe e41, my Sigma f40 and my Morphe 06f palette. I blended once again with a Morphe m530.
For a bit of a flush, I swept some Jouer Powder Blush in Bougainvillea along my cheeks with a Sigma f15. I once again blended, this time with a Real Techniques Multi Task Brush.
Now for a killer glow. I used a Morphe m310 to layer both Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powders in Gold Digger and Illuminati.
To got the basic shape of my brows mapped out using an Anastasia Duo Brush 7 and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. I then finished them off with the same brush and some NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Powder in Dark Brown.
I highlighted my brow bones with an e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Eyeshadow Brush and some NYX Cosmetics Hot Singles Eyeshadow in Lace.
I tossed on some Red Cherry Lashes in 523 and a touch of Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
I finished of the look with some NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Apple Strudel.
I’ll see you for Mani Monday!
