Make-Up Guide 3

21 February 2009

I found this guide at BellaSugar but added steps 1, 2 and 7.

1. Wash your face and pat dry (make sure there isn't any make up on your face) and then apply a foundation that is the same color as your skin tone.
2. Use a large bushy brush and sweep on some rosy pink blush on your cheekbones.
3.Then apply a primer to your lids. Spread it evenly in a thin layer and let it sit for about a minute. I like the way Estee Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Shadow Base leaves lids smooth and absorbs any extra oil. This is a great way to ensure that your shadow lasts all night without creasing. Then, take your favorite champagne shadow and blend a little bit from the base of your lids all the way up to your brow bone.
4.Next, with a small, tapered shadow brush, apply a pale, shimmery silver-blue shadow such as the light blue shade in the Nars South Pacific Duo to the inner half of your lower lid, making sure the shadow is well below your crease line. Use the same color on the inner V of your eye and bring it all the way down creating a line to the middle of your lower rim.
5.Then, apply deeper blue shade such as MAC Eye Shadow in Tilt to the other side of your lid, making a V shape from the base into the crease. Using a clean brush and a windshield wiping motion, blend the shadows together.
6.Line your upper lashes and the outside edges of your lower lashes with a light navy shadow such as Midnight Blackberry by Terry. Apply false lash pieces like these Corner Faux Eyelashes from Laura Mercier to make your eyes look wider. Apply two coats of black mascara as a finishing touch to your eyes.
7. To finish it off, apply pink lipgloss onto your lips. Enjoy! (:
