Hello muh’ lovelies! What have you been up to? The holidays are coming up and I’m mad excited about celebrating Christmas soon followed by New Year! Did I mention that I’ll be in BKK for New Year’s Eve? The land of great food and shopping. I have a feeling that year 2013 is gonna be a great year for everyone! Meanwhile, enjoy the look below…
A look perfect for the holiday season. Named the look Summer Breeze. Don’t know why. The name just popped right out of nowhere and I just had to use it. I don’t usually name the looks I create. Trying my shot at creativity I guess *giggles*.
STEP 1: EYES
Semi Closed Eye View
Opened Eye View
NYX HD primer – Start with priming your eyelids for the eye shadows to stay on and not crease. You may use any primer that you already own.
NYX JEP, “Milk” – Apply all over lids and lower lash line as we will be applying bright colors on that area.
Urban Decay Vice Palette, “Blitz” – Apply onto lid.
Urban Decay Vice Palette, “Noise” – Apply onto crease.
Urban Decay Vice Palette, “Unhinged” – Apply onto lower lash line.
Urban Decay Vice Palette, “Lace” – Apply onto crease to blend the harsh lines of “Noise” and inner tear ducts.
Urban Decay Vice Palette, “Anonymous” – Apply onto brow bone area
Liquid Eyeliner – Maybelline Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner in Black; an alternative to use is the Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Liquid Eyeliner or Loreal Super Liner; “Black Lacquer” . I have a review here and here if you haven’t already read my awesome posts. Oh, I have to say I really like this liquid eyeliner. It’s inexpensive and great to use. Stay tune for a review!
UD 24/7 Concealer, “NSA” – To conceal those dark circles or any blemishes/ redness on the face.
UD 24/7 Glide On Pencil, “Zero” – Tightline & apply onto waterline.
Lucent Magique Light Touch Up Pen – Apply under the eye to brighten up your eyes.
STEP 2: FACE
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation, “Nude” – Apply all over the face. My fav. brush to use is the Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80. Gives it a nice finishing to the face; almost kinda airbrushed effect.
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish, “Natural” – Dust all over face to set the foundation.
MAC Limited Edition Wonderwoman, “Golden Lariat” – Highlight the nose and in between the brows. You can also apply the highlight just above the cheekbones.
STEP 3: CHEEKS
Benefit Hoola Bronzer – Apply onto the hollows of your cheeks and temples. An optional step to do is to apply the bronzer onto the sides of your nose to give it more structure (like you sorta had a rhinoplasty *giggles*). If you’d like to know more about the Hoola Bronzer, please click here. Love this bronzer coz’ it’s matte!
MAC Blush, “Peony Petal” – Apply onto the apples of your cheeks. Not sure where to locate em’, smile and just apply the blusher. You won’t go wrong doing this!
STEP 4: LIPS
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick, “Soft Nude” – Apply onto your lips accordingly.
Some random pink lipgloss – Top off the lips with any lipgloss of your choice or you can skip this step if you prefer having matte lips.
STEP 5: OPTIONAL
