Warning: Long wall of photos ahead.
MAC Rubensque used as a primer and base.
Applied all over the eyelid with the middle finger. (You can kiiiinda) see it in the photo. It’s the shimmer on the eyelid.
Note: Never use the index finger when applying makeup. For some reason we always apply more pressure when using the index, so we might tug at the skin more, or poke ourselves in the eye.
Urban Decay Ilusion.
Applied on the lid with the ring finger.
Because this is applied on the lid, Rubensque ends up being a highlight colour as well.
Urban Decay Bewitch as the contour colour in the ‘V’ of the eye.
Applied with the pinkie.
I used a brush with the other eye, it’s far easier like that.
Angled liner brush and apply gel eyeliner.
Filled in the ends of the brow with a grey brown pencil. My brows are pretty thick but are a little sparse at the end.
Liquid foundation on a damp foundation brush.
Foundation brush kept damp to sheer out the foundation a little.
MAC Warm Soul, then applied to the apples of the cheeks.
From my Coastal Scents palette, a brown blush which I use as a contour colour.
Apply on the hollows of the cheeks.
And the other side.
Taking the same brown blush with a smaller brush.
Apply the jawline to contour the face a little.
Translucent finishing powder to blend and set everything. I’ve taken to blending everything at the very end with translucent powder. It makes things easier then to blend it first then set it at the end because the powder does buff and soften the blush anyway.
Applied to the blush.
I’ve forgotten to take a photo, but to the rest of the face too.
Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Black Ruby.
The finished look.
