In the last of the drugstore makeup posts I have a purple smokey/night time look with a sheer shimmery lip color. See below the photos for directions and products.
To get a better look at the photo of the products, click on the thumbnail to enlarge.
- I applied shade #3 of the purple eyeshadow from the lash line up to the crease and a little bit past the crease. In order to give the eye look more continuity, I also applied it to the lower lash line.
- Shade #2 (a deeper purple) should be applied to the crease to give it definition and depth and blended to eliminate harsh lines.
- The lightest eyeshadow #4, should be used as a highlight along the brow bone, just under the eyebrow. Also when applying the lightest shade you should spend a few extra moments blending it into the color below it to soften it.
- Eyeshadow #1 is the darkest purple and I applied it with a small brush along the top lash line and the outer half of the lower lash line and forming a bit of a point past the outer corner.
- I applied the CG black eyeliner along the top lash line, the outer corner of the lower lash line and in the water line.
- Then I applied the NYX blush and two coats of the L’Oreal mascara.
- When it comes to the lip color for this look I chose a light shimmery gloss to wear alone since the eyes are already darker, smokey and colorful. I like to keep a balance with emphasis on the lips and flattering, subtle eye colors or vice versa. But if you want more color simply layer the gloss over a light shade of lipstick. It would even work well with the Pink Chocolate Ulta lipstick from the previous look.
What fun is a good fairy? I prefer a bad one ;o) The only thing missing were wings but locating black and red ones didn’t happen in time for the shots.
This ain’t your little girls cat costume, this kittys all grown and glam. Complete with Swarovski crystals and glitter whiskers of course.
Ahh my favorite time of year is here! Get ready for all my Halloween posts! Ok be kind to me, this is the first time I painted a sugar skull on a face and not an inanimate object :o) I definitely have some practicing to do.
I’m calling this the “guy version” because I plan on doing a “girly” sugar skull soon. The guys I wanted to keep dark and devious and simple but strong in color contrast. And many thanks to my patient model!
I loved this look when I first saw it and I had to reproduce it!
