This is the follow up to a tutorial that I did Monday (which you can find below this one) that discussed contouring….today you can find the corresponding eye look and the perfect nude lip! I have done a smokey brown eye tutorial before but this is a faster, softer version using different colors. Hope you enjoy this quick look!
Apply concealer to the entire lid up to the brow, all around the eye and underneath the eye. Set with powder. Apply your primer all over the eyelid up to the brow (I used MAC’s Paint Pot).
Using a big fluffy, apply MAC’s “Moleskin” all over the eye stopping before the brow bone. Using a tapered fluffy/blending brush or a bullet brush, apply MAC’s “Coquette” in the crease allllll the way inward to the front of the iris and then into the outer “V”….The second color will be subtle. It should look something like this:
Using a bullet brush, apply MAC’s “Espresso” in the crease…and in the outer “V”. I also picked up a tiny bit on a fluffy brush and swiped it over the crease and in the outer “V”. It will look something like this:
Wipe off your big fluffy and blend, blend, blend your browns together. Take a stiff brush and apply your highlight color, (I used MAC’s “Shroom” ) from the brow bone down into the inner corner. Wipe off your big fluffy again (you don’t want to accidentally put leftover brown on your browbone) and blend the light brown up into the highlight. Apply your false lashes (I used Andrea #33 lashes) and go over any excess glue with gel liner. Apply gel liner onto the waterline. Take your bullet brush and smudge any excess onto the lower lash line. Pick up some “Espresso” on your bullet brush and apply it to the lash line….If you want an even softer look, use “Coquette” instead. Your final product will look something like this:
Apply a great nude lip like “Biba” from Julie Hewett. I absolutely love this lipcolor….it is one that I will buy over and over because I use it over and over. There are tons of nudes out there now that have little to no color in them…some almost look like a stick of concealer and they can be tricky to wear. This one is so great because it has some color in it so it really is a peachy nude instead of a nude nude. I put this directly on my lips (which obviously already have some color in them)….if you want it to be even paler or more nude then apply foundation or concealer to your lips before you apply the lipstick to get the true color. If you would like to see the blush/bonzer and highlighter used, take a look at the tutorial before this one.
