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.

I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s
a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Thanks, Patsy! I use WordPress, and my husband takes care of all the graphic design work. I will pass on your praise to him!
Great job! I do drag an before I did, I never knew just how powerful make up could be! My D-mom said honey just the contouring alone can change your whole face shape! I’m thinkin about going to make up school though so I can do a look more like the one in your picture. I’m good at the drag looks but that’s not excactly something thatll work for an everyday look. If I could just leanr to do something more like this or then maybe I will actually wear make up out on normal days!
Awww… thanks, Vito! You should totally go to makeup school! As far as drag looks go, I’m SO envious of the talent you gals have- keep up the great work!
You are amzing bright shining star.
Thanks for your support, Destinee, but YOU are the star!!
