Happy Makeup Monday Ya’ll!!!
I decided to post a makeup tutorial with images. Now I am NOT by any means a makeup artist, but hell do I love makeup!
So below are the steps I took to make this subtle gold eye look!
Step #1: PRIME!
I have been loving the elf poreless face primer for under my foundation. It fills in all of my pore imperfections, and trust me, I’ve got a lot of them, especially on my nose.
Step #2: FOUNDATION!
Go in with your favourite foundation of course! For this look, I used the Kat Von D “Lock-It” foundation in colour Light 45 Warm, and I like to apply that with a beauty blender!
We are smooth, and pale. Yes I resemble a light snow white shade.
On to my coverup highlighting.
Step #3: COVER UP!
Serious now… I live by my Tarte Shape Tape. I hate that we can’t buy it in Canada but that’s fine, the border isn’t that far from me…
I like to add my coverup under my eyes, in the middle of my forehead, under my contour line, and on my chin! I look terrifying but it works!
Step #4: Contour and Brows!
Now, I know I am pasty pale, which is why this girl needs to contour and add a little sculpting to this round pale face! For that I use the Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye palette in the middle pan colour called “lazaus” for contouring, and I use the brown shade named “Saleos” to fill in my brows. I don’t do anything special for my brows except draw out my brow shape and fill it in. I don’t over draw and I try my hardest not to make them too dark even though my hair is as dark as it is! (yes that’s natural…now)
Step #5: EYESHADOW!
The entire look is wrapped around this eye look. I do love a big glam eye but sometimes subtle is the way to go… You know…like an early Tuesday morning look for the office 😉
I’m using the Marc Jacobs “Style Eye-Con” palette in the colours “212 Dreamer”
I used the first colour in the palette mixed with third heart all over the lid and brow bone. Then I took the second colour with heart over it in my crease to subtly smoke out my eyes.
Using the gold shimmery colour, I placed that in the middle of my lid and buffed it out with the same brush that I used in my crease to blend out the harsh glitter line.
Step #6: Eyeliner
Everyone breathe! hold your breath! don’t freaking move! It takes me about 10 solid minutes to apply my eyeliner…cat eye, wing, or a thin modest line…I am always screwing it up.. I’m using the Rimmel London Scandel-eyes eye liner!
*This is the look of someone who SLAYED THEIR EYE LIER IN ONE GO!!!!!*
Step #7: BLUSH&HIGHLIGHT!
As usual, I’m going in with my Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in the shade “Paaaaarty”
And then we’re going to highlight that cheeeeeek bone with some Anastasia Beverly Hills glow kit in the colour, “Hella”
Step #8: MASCARRRRA!
My ride or die! Loreal Voluminous waterproof mascara is always in my sights! This mascara makes my lashes so huge and voluminous which is great because I do not like false eyelashes!
Step #9: LIPS!
For this look, I wanted something subtle to not take away from my eye look with the bold liner. I’m using my Tarte liquid matte lipstick in “Namaste”
And that’s how I created this look!
