So I know I haven’t updated all week and I figured since yesterday was Valentine’s day that i’d do a flirty makeup look for all you beauties out there so if you want to know how i created the look above and the products i used keep reading!
First of all I know many of you out there use foundation or a tinted moisturizer almost everyday, I feel like with my skin tone and the price of my foundation i just don’t need it everyday per say so for this look, no foundation is needed, unless of course you feel like you need it. However in the new future I will be posting a review of the product I use which is “Bare minerals in liquid form” which is about $45 at Sephora.
For this look I used “Kat Von D’s * Tattoo Liner (liquid)” purchased for $23 at Sephora. I made a thin line starting from the inner corner of the lid getting thinker as i proceed out and ended with a wing to add a bit of length and flare to my eyes, (waterproof, long lasting, no flaking)
Next i used Sephora’s collection “#35- Romantic Comedy Contour eye pencil 24/h wear “(waterproof) for $12. outlining the water line and lash line for a smokey effect and going over top of the black liner just on the Winged part to brighten the top lid.
I then used “Revlon’s colorstay eye shadow palette” purchased for $12 at Shopper’s Drug Mart, using the lightest colour to highlight my brow bone and to open the eyes.
* Mascara and an eyelash curing is optional, I usually wear Almay One coat, Get up & Grow for Brown eyes Purchased for $12 from Shopper’s Drug Mart. *
The first one i used is called “Chocolate Soleil in medium/deep matte from Too Faced”, for $35 from Sephora. I used this to create that Kylie Jenner cheek bone look, i wanted the effect of chiseled cheeks and this stuff actually smells like chocolate!
Second i wanted to also add a summery glow, because sadly here in Canada it was -27 degrees outside I’m pale as a ghost lo. So i used “DiorSkin Nude Tan in Light” which is a (Heathy glow enhancing powder) it adds a bit of sparkle to your face and makes it look like you just got off the plane. I purchased this for a whopping $60. I placed this in a 3 motion on either side of my face and down my neck making it deeper at the cheeks to get more of a chiseled look.
Now before you go look for this brand it sadly has been discontinued which sucks but i made sure i stocked up on it before it left the stores and I’m sure there are a ton of products that are similar in colour. I used “Marcelle cream blush in Colour Raspberry” purchased for $13 at Shopper’s Drug Mart. Placing this just on the apples of my cheeks giving me the “I’m alive look” lol!
To get that Kylie Jenner look, I’ve been watching Youtube tutorials and was recently at a photoshoot wear the makeup artist basically told its just over drawing your natural line above the cupid’s bow and just underneath your bottom lip in the centre with a nude coloured lipliner, that simple.
However for myself, i already a full Lip so what i do to make them just a tad fuller is i apply my Lip colour first which in the case it’s a “Baby Pink matte colour”, not sure wear i purchased this from considering the tube doesn’t have a label which sucks but sephora has many brands that carry basically the same colour.
So after i apply the desired lip colour, i usually only do this if I’m wearing a gloss, chapstick, or a pink colour. i outline just the cupid’s bow and underneath the centre of the bottom lip with “Inner Rim Linner” from Tarte purchased for $23 at Sephora, smudging it in for an almost barely there plump. Now this product is actually supposed to be for the waterline making you have that “I’m awake effect” but i feel like it can be used aa a lip liner.
That’s all for now Beauties and i hope everyone enjoyed their Valentines’s Day Single or Not, I know I enjoyed my Netflix watching, lazy chocolate eating Day haha!
