Welcome back! This week, I wanted to share a different type of makeup with you. I had a plan to create a wet look, but unfortunately I had to change my plans at the very last minute. I had to come up with a new idea if I didn't want to leave you without a post another week. I've never tried out my glitter tube from the Festival Face before, so I decided to create a makeup look with these glitters and I will share my opinion about the product in a dedicated product post end of next week.
My first step is always the same: cleaning the whole face with micellar water. I used the pink one from Bioderma, because it's for my sensitive skin. You can use any makeup remover you already own. This one is just my personal choice.
The foundation I used on my face was the Born This Way foundation from Too Faced. This one has a creamy medium-coverage, which can be built up to full-coverage. The light coverage foundations were out of game because I needed a perfectly smooth skin for this makeup.
I skipped the powder during the photoshoots, as always. The reason is because I didn't want to get a matte result.
The next step was the contour and the blush, where I used my favourite powdery product the Natural Face palette from Too Faced. I chose the the Tropic Like It's Hot for the contouring and the Pink Sands for the blush. The brush I used for this step was the 101/LUXE FACE DEFINER.
Do you remember my first ever product review? It was about the Aurora palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It's a highlighter palette with unusual shades for example the blue. I chose this shade, because I thought it'll will be in harmony with this makeup. I applied the Orion shade with the 129/LUXE FAN brush.
I hope you wont be bored by this part. I always work with the same technique, because the natural eyebrows are always my goal. I picked the #12 brush (two sided) from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I combed out my eyebrows and I started to draw the missing threads with the Dipbrow Pomade's Medium Brown shade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. The last step was to comb out my threads with the Brow Set from MAC. It's a transparent gel, which is perfect if your goal is to create a natural look. These three products are my must-haves to make brows.
We've come to the part of the makeup which is the most important and also the most exciting and hardest. I used two shades from the Full Spectrum palette from Urban Decay: the Metamorphosis and the Minx. The Metamorphosis is a light blue, which I used on my upper eyelids. It was applied with the 234/SMOKY SHADER. I needed to blend out the shade, so I used the 227/LUXE SOFT DEFINER for this step.
When it was perfectly blended out I applied the Minx on my lower eyelids. It's a dark blue shade which was applied and worked out with the 226/SMUGER brush which has thinner bristles than usual. After thinking a little bit, I decided to use the Waterproof Créme Color gel liner from Anastasia Beverly Hills on my waterline. It was applied with the 317/WING LINER. I think it was a good idea, because it nicely emphasises the eyes.
In the next step I used the beautiful silvery glitters from Festival Face. At first I applied the Glitter Primer from NYX on my eyelids. You don't have to apply it on the whole eyelids, of course. The primer is important, because it helps to keep the glitters on. They would easily fall off without using the primer. (I thought that this primer will do the job, but It didn't, because the glitters were a bit bigger than usual. Glitters of this type needs a glue like the one I already mentioned in one of my makeup look posts, e.g. Kryolan Mastyx P.
Let's get on the lashes. I used the Lash Curler from MAC to have my lashes look longer. I also used false lashes. I wore the Natural Black Wispies from Ardell this time, and glued them up with the Lash Glue Dark Tone from Huda Beauty.
A wrote a review about Everlasting Liquid Lipstick from Kat Von D a long time ago, but I've never used it in this Makeup-Look section. I decided to show it to you on my lips. I opted for the Double Dare shade. Blue eyes and blushed lips are always a good combination, if you want something a bit more to the extremes. The lipstick comes with a perfect wand and as I described earlier in the mentioned post the application is easy with it, but if you want to use it on many different people, (hygiene) I don't recommend using it. Apply it with a brush instead. I applied it 331/PRECISION LIP.
Time Spent: 1 hour and 30 minutes
