Hi! I've been planning a makeup like this for a long time, but finally it's time to share it with you. The makeup is not really natural, but given the photos we made, you may think it's a classic nude. I used mainly brown and golden shades for this makeup. This combination brings the makeup to the nude side again, but my opinion is that this makeup is too shiny to be nude.


The model came to me without a makeup, but it doesn't matter, because the first step is always the same: cleaning the face. I used micellar water from Bioderma. I like to use their pink one, because it's perfect for the sensitive skin, too.

I started the makeup with the foundation. Monica has beautiful and healthy skin, so I opted for the Face and Body foundation from MAC and applied it with the 104/BUFFER brush. It's a water based foundation, which gave us a light coverage.

The next step was the contour and the blush. I used the creamy products first and the powdery ones just right after. I picked up the Contour Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills for contouring and the Lip Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills to blush. It's important to blend out these shades perfectly and I did it with 117/PETIT DEFINED BUFFER. The Natural Face palette from Too Faced was my choice to fix the creamy shades.

The last product on her face was the highlighter from the Sun Dropped Glow Kit from Anastasia Beverly Hills. The shade I used was the Summer, which is a pretty gold shade with white reflects. I applied it with the 129/LUXE FAN brush.


The second part is the eyebrow. She has a prettily shaped brows, but I decided to draw more threads to get thicker eyebrows, which emphasises the curves of her face. It may be strange to you, but a lot depends on the shape of eyebrows. I used my favourite brow product from Anastasia Beverly Hills, the Dipbrow Pomade in medium brown for this first step. The brush I used was the #12 from Anastasia Beverly Hills. To finish with the eyebrows, I combed out the threads with the Brow Set from MAC. It's a transparent gel, which is perfect if your goal is to create a natural look.


I created a not too complicated, but at the same time a very girlish/ladylike eyes. I wanted to try out my brand new Long-Wear Lip Topper from Jouer. I'll be reviewing this product soon, so I wanted to know everything about it. Yes, it's a lip product with rich pigments and I needed to know if it works also as a liquid eyeshadow. I think it was a great idea to test it, because it worked well. At first I needed the Modern Renaissance palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I used the Burnt Orange shade on the crease and on the outer eyelids. It was applied with the 231/LUXE PETIT CREASE and blended out with the 227/LUXE SOFT DEFINER. The Long-Wear Lip Topper was used in Melten Gold shade on the inner eyelids. Maybe you're already wondering how can a liquid lip topper stay on the eyelids the whole afternoon. I fixed this problem with a powdery golden shade. The Naked palette from Urban Decay was chosen for this step. The Half Baked was applied on the top of the lip topper with the 237/DETAIL SHADER. On the lower eyelids I used only one shade, the Burnt Orange with 230/LUXE PENCIL. For the waterline I opted for a beige - Matte Light Skin tone - pencil the Wonder Pencil from NYX. This step was important to ''make'' her eyes look bigger. Only one step missing to finish the eyes! I used the Lash Curler from MAC to have her lashes look longer. It wasn't enough. This makeup needed false lashes and I prepared the Natural Black Wispies from Ardell and I glued them up with the Lash Glue Dark Tone from Huda Beauty.


I was thinking about what shade to use from Anastasia's Lip Palette. I hesitated between natural brown and pink shades. I quickly realised that I had to use the natural pink shade, because I used too much browny shades on her face and eyes. I thought I needed a little bit different colour on her lips. The shade I used was the Peachy Pink, which was applied with 331/PRECISION LIP.
