Enough people seemed interested in detailed make-up posts, so I decided to finally do it. Just as a heads up, I am no expert. I don't even wear make-up on a daily basis. But I do enjoy wearing make-up, playing around with colours, and I have found what works for me. I'm going to show you my favourite look, which is quite similar to what I wore to my grad banquet.
I don't like wearing heavy foundation, so after washing and moisturizing my face I put on Quo Mineral Sheer Tint tinted moisturizer in Porcelain and set it with Mac Select Sheer Pressed Powder in NC15.
Here are the eyeshadows I'm using.
1. Mac Nocturnelle
2. Mac Trax
3. Mac Hey (part of Fafi Eyes 1, but not LE)
4. The white from the Lise Watier Vintage Moderne Palette
First, I apply Nocturnelle to the outside corner of my eyes using a short, stubby brush. It looks a bit silly, but I just focus on making sure both eyes are even.
After that, I switch back to my regular eyeshadow brush. I blend out Nocturnelle, and apply Trax to the lids.
Next, I apply Hey to the inner corner of my eye (but still on the lid) and blend with Trax. Then I use the white to highlight, and apply it under my brow and on the very inner corner of my eyes.
When I do winged eyeliner, I always draw the wing on first which makes it much easier. I can't take credit for this, I got the idea from a make-up tutorial featured on YFF about a year ago.
Finish off with mascara. This mascara is my favourite, it's a nice formula and it makes my lashes stand out without clumping.
Apply some blush and the look is done. I'm wearing the blush that's part of the Lise Watier Vintage Moderne Palette (pictured above). I love shimmery, peachy blushes. They're beautiful and perfect for fair skin tones.
Here's the finished look out in sunlight.
So, what do you think? Would you like to see more make-up posts in the future?
