This is what I like love about makeup. I’m not really very girly- always having preferred mud runs to makeup. During my first round of college, though, I was an art major. In high school, I had a very inspiring art teacher, Sandi K., who had a knack for bringing out the best in everyone. When I “discovered” good quality makeup and tools, I found that I really enjoyed playing around. The artist in me began to resurface. I have since made some fabulous friends in the makeup and skincare world, and have learned a lot. I look forward to learning more from these fab gals and guys every time I see them.
How did I get this look? Check out the steps below:
To get this look, I prepped with Dior HydraLife Pro-Youth Sorbet Crème moisturizer, followed by Dior Capture Totale Dream Skin Perfect Skin Creator.
I applied Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in Shade 7.0, using Urban Decay’s Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush. I then touched up with Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Medium Dark Warm using It Cosmetics for Ulta Airbrush Blurring Concealer brush. I used Too Faced Sweetheart Beads Radiant Glow Face Powder to set, with Too Faced Powder Pouf Brush.
I contoured my face, neck, and nose with Kat Von D Shade Light palette using Too Faced’s Flatbuki brush. I highlighted using the same palette, and It Cosmetics double-ended shadow brush. I chose Benefit’s Rockateur blush, using the brush that came with it, because I dropped the brush I usually use…oops.
I first primed with Lorac’s Behind the Scenes primer.
I used mainly Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette for my eyes. Champagne Truffle went all over my lids and brow bone; then Amaretto on my lids. I used It Cosmetics for Ulta Velvet Lux All Over Shadow brush for both of these. With It Cosmetics for Ulta Velvet Lux Effortless Crease Brush, I used Black Forest Truffle in my creases. For an added touch, I put a bit of Road Stripe from Urban Decay’s Vice 3 palette at the inner corners of my eyes.
To line my eyes, I used Mac Technakohl in Graphblack on my upper lash lines, and smudged with Smashbox #9 flat liner brush. I used Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Triple Fudge to line over the black, and on my lower lash line, with Sephora Pro Shadow Brush #9. Finally, I used Mac Technakohl in Graphblack on my lower water line.
For my brows, I used Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown, applied with Japonesque angled brush. I used two mascaras- first, Benefit’s They’re Real! in black, with Too Faced Better Than Sex layered over it.
I first lined my lips with Too Faced Perfect Lips in Perfect Spice, then filled in. I used one coat of Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Rush, then blotted, and reapplied. I finished with Too Faced lip gloss in Flirt.
