MAKEUP: PLUM & GOLD TUTORIAL

Monday, December 1, 2014

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today's look was highly requested and I'm excited to share it with you guys! It is a beautiful gold with plum look. This is perfect for this time of year. You can also easily change up the look by adding browns instead of gold. So without further ado, let's get a started! :D






Primer
As usual I am taking my favorite eye primer, "Painterly" a paintpot by MAC, and applying this all over my lid. Remember that adding a primer will help even out the color of the lid and the stickiness of the base will allows the shadows come out true to color, and last all day.

Eyeshadows
For the shadows I am using a purple color from Morphe and the rest are all Lorac Pro Palette eyeshadows. I feel like I've been using these shadows a lot...they are just so easy to work with and very blendable!



Apply the plum color on the crease area and blend it upwards a bit higher than the crease. Then add "Taupe" to the ourer crease area and slowly build it inwards. Darken the color by applying "sable" over the taupe color. Remember to blend! To deepen the color, add the darkest brown shade in the palette. This is "Espresso".

For the gold color, I am using Nyx's "Pure Gold" Jumbo Eye Pencil on the lower lid. I then added the "Gold" shade from the Lorac Pro Palette and slowly blended it to combine with all the other shadows. Remember not to go past the crease! To finish the eyeshadow I added "Nude" to the inner most corner to give it a highlight.

Eyeliner
I recently purchased Tarte's Amazonian Clay Gel Eye Liner. I am loving this product for the upper eyeliner. It is waterproof and will no smudge. This also dries completely matte. Using the eyeliner pencil that came with the gel eyeliner in the shade "Black", create a wing and fill in the area with the liner. Go over the liner with NYC black liquid liner.




Lashes
Today I used Ardelle Whispies. Fill free to use any lashes you'd like!

Bottom Lash Line
For the bottom lash line I difuseed the plum color on the outer end and difused the same "Gold" on the inner tear duct area. This will create a nice gradient from plum to gold. To finish the bottom lash line I lined the waterline with L'oreal's Gel Liner in Espresso. I find that this brand of liners works well for the water line as It won't transfer to the eye area.




Mascara
Finish off the look by applying mascara to all of the lashes, including falsies and bottom lashes.

I then went in and finished my facial contouring and highlight. You're ready!



Stay tuned for my highlight and contour routine! Coming very soon!

I hope you guys enjoyed this look... a video on this look will soon be uploaded on my Youtube channel which I will link in an upcoming post. Hope this look brightens up your Monday:) xo

  7. Unlike the thick inner volume of the pear head, this
    cheap hair extensions
    gives a feeling of warmth and beauty.
    When trimming, pay attention to the tail of the real hair extensions must
    be cut from high to low level, roll up and send it to have this effect.
    This hair style can be brushed out by a hair extensions dryer and a
    reel, and it is also possible to use no special hot.
