“One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals”
Hello my lovelies!
I know it’s the dead of winter, but you can’t stop me from using yellow in January. I love a deeper eye look and a dark lip, but something about incorporating light colors in the winter time makes this time of year a little less gloomy. I’m also featuring my faux freckles once again because I love the added playfulness and youthful effect of freckles on the nose area.
You might have noticed that my eye looks have been including more and more winged liner. In the past, I have been very anti-liner, as I feel it can often take away from an eye look. While I still don’t love throwing a wing on every eye look I create, I’ve grown to like them more and finally enjoy including them with looks as an enhancement tool. Winged liner can really make or break an eye look, but I have found myself implementing them more often as I continue to improve my skills.
Although this blog is supposed to be about the eye look, I also wanted to include a quick rave about my lip color. I have been obsessing over this Rimmel liquid lipstick and using it constantly. Not only is the color amazing, but this is also the only liquid lipstick I own that truly stays on. In my opinion, the formula is far more similar to a lip stain in that it will stay put, but ha the opacity and texture of a beautifully whipped liquid lipstick. Definitely an off-subject tangent, but I really feel that this lip product deserves its own honorable mention.
Let’s Get Started:
- Prime the eyelids with a concealer or primer that you prefer.
- Blend a light, warm brown shadow into the crease, extending to the corners of the eyes and diffusing along the brow bone.
- Deepen the crease with a cool toned, medium brown shadow, focusing the concentration of the color within the actual crease of the eye. Blend slightly upward to meet with the first shadow.
- Cut the lid with concealer halfway across, blending the outer edge into the other shadows.
- Pack a yellow shadow across the concealed area. Allow to dry completely before diffusing the harsh edges of the shadow into the brown shadows.
- Blend a mixture of the two brown shadows across the entire lower lashline.
- Highlight the tear duct with a champagne toned shadow.
- Line the waterline with a nude eyeliner.
- Create a winged liner to your preference with a matte black liquid liner.
- Curl and coat the lashes with mascara. Apply falsies if you’d like.
