You know those days when you just cant pull yourself together and you keep on thinking about same shit that pisses you off over and over again? Well, my day was like that and I have a habit to spend times like these in bed feeling sorry for myself. But today even my beautiful new zebra sheets werent able to keep me for themselves because I decided I will turn my misery into creativity and do something useful for this blog and for you, my dear readers. (this also a reminder to you all – dont let the bad days and bad mood get you!)
I pulled out my make up, played with it and created something I consider very wearable for nights out or special occasions. This look is so easy to create, it literally takes 10 minutes for full face make up. Stuff I used is mostly Illamasqua, but you can, of course, use anything else you have.
First thing I did was my foundation– I used Illamasqua Skin Base and Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre to set it. After that I did my eyesbrows with damp angled brush and Art Deco brow eyeshadow no.2 and lightly contoured my face with Deborah blush 02. Then, the eyes. Here is a tutorial, but it is as simple as it can be.
Start with around eye area covered with foundation, and add concealer if needed.
I used Urban Decay Primer potion as an eyeshadow primer. It is not my favorite primer but it dries to non sticky base so the eyeshadows stays on better when applied wet.
I used Illamasqua Berber pigment, beautiful orange/red shimmery shade and damp angled brush to apply it precisely to my lid (this is an well used brush so it looks kinda scruffy).
I draw a line directly into my crease, starting from a inner corner of the eye. I went with it over the lid to the outer corner and made a little “tail” – just like you use regular eyeliner.
I filled in the lid area below the line with eyeshadow.
And defined the shape in the end.
Using a black pencil, I lined the upper and lower waterline.
And then I took the angled brush again and draw a line below the waterline.
I smudged that line with pencil brush to make it appear softer.
Then I took my faithful liquid eyeliner (from Eveline) and made a medium thick line.
And for the end I applied a generos coat of black mascara (Essence Multiaction) on both upper and lower lashes.
And the finished eye make up looked like this.
I used Illamasqua Facade on my lips and enjoyed an whole afternoon of photo retouching. Yay.
Do you like my look? Will you try it out? Any requests for future tutorials?
