Long time no see! I haven't even really realized how long it's been.
But now I'm back after refreshing vacation full of Arkham city and sleeping, ready to post the make up tutorial I've been requested to do couple times. This is the face-painting routine I do almost every morning to turn myself into a walking optical illusion and prevent people from throwing up their breakfast every time they see my face!
Before showing you some gorey stuff that will haunt you in your dreams forever, here's the picture of the result!
Ok now to the horror part, the starting point! Oh god, I'm bit embarassed to post this...
Here I'm only wearing some B.B cream and powder plus lenses. Lenses are Barbie eye super nudy in pink, which I reviewed a while ago.
Stuff used for the base:
Skin 79 Diamond the prestige B.B cream and to set it I gently pat a bit of Elizabeth Arden Pure finish mineral powder on top.
Next step: highlighting, to re-shape your face without going under the knife! I use these product
Nivea Perfect cover (works well as a highlighter when you use the lightest shades!) and as a blush Make up store Hightech lighter in big bang.
Apply the highlighter in the areas I artistically marked with pink and take your time blending it out or else you'll end up looking like you have vitiligo.
Apply your blush to the apples of your cheeks and again, blend out well. Unless you work as a shopping centre Santa Claus.
Moving on to the eyes! I usually wear the same colors every day, except if I'm going somewhere special. Then I might change the color combos. But usually I don't because I'm a boring person.
For the first step of my eye make up, I use
Sheer and little bit sparkly silver color from YSL Ombers 5 lumieres palette no. 6
and thicker and more glittery silver from Dior 5 couleurs gold edition 001 palette.
Add the YSL silver all the way up to your brow bone and Dior silver to the inner corner or your eye. Again, I drew a nice pink box to demonstrate!
Using the same Dior palette again, this time the copper and dark brown shades!
Apply the copper-shade half way through your lid and little over your crease ( inside the area drawn with blue) and dark brown to the outer corner of your eye and just directly to your crease(marked with pink obiously). Then just blend them really well together.
Next up, lining your eyes!
I use gel eyeliner applied with an ankled brush, ultimate favourite is Estee Lauders Double wear! I prefer gel eyeliners over liquid ones because of the softer result they give, liquid eyeliners tend to draw very sharp and harsh line.
Line your eyes so that the line is at it's thinnest from the inner corner, thickening to the middle parts of your eye and then gets thinner towards the outer corner. This creates the illusion of rounder eyes. Draw a tiny ''wing'' to the outer corner to make your eyes look bigger and wider. You're on your way to become a living optical illusion, yay!
Line your lower lid with the same dark brown eyeshadow you used before and add some of that shimmery silver eyeshadows on the areas marked with pink. This will bring more light to your eyes and make them look more doll-like.
Finish up with falshies and mascara! I'm using Miss eyelure lashes and some random cheap ass mascara that's not even worth mentioning, I don't really care what mascara I use because I only use it to blend my own lashes with falshies.
And it's not over yet! Maximizing the fakeness with lip make up!
As a lipstick, I use Lumene Natural code in Satin coral and as a gloss YSL golden gloss! The best lipgloss in the whole world, I guarantee that.
Add the lipstick only to the middle of your lips and then blend it outwards with your fingers or brush or whatever you like.
Then add the gloss, only to the middle again. Doing this will make your lips appear fuller.
Congratulations, now you're as fake as I am! Just do your hair and you're ready to camwhore like no tomorrow!
Ok, see you guys later! Probably going to do a random post of all kinds of pictures I've taken troughout this long absence from the blogging world :3
